The humble brussels sprout has been having a renaissance in cafes and restaurants recently, and they have also been appearing on the menu at home. They’ve been going down a treat, sauteed with bacon or added to a tray of roasted vegetables. If you’re not so keen on them, try this red curry with pumpkin and black beans. It really is delicious and quick. Serve with rice or naan bread.
