Spicy Brussels Sprouts


I had had some Brussels sprouts recently and they really impressed me by using (I think) mustard. This is my reverse-engineered version of the same that comes close to the original yet has my own twist to it. Don’t fear the dish. It takes 4 ingredients, 2 minutes to prepare and 5 minutes to cook!



30-40 Brussels Sprouts (I prefer the smaller ones as they are a little more bitter)

5-6 cloves of freshly crushed garlic

1 Tblsp of coarse ground Dijon mustard

3 Tsp Freshly grated Parmesan cheese

2 Tbslp EVOO



Simply chop the Brussels sprouts into two halves each. Coarsly grind the garlic (easier with some sea salt). Add the sprouts, garlic and mustard into a bowl and mix. Heat a “non-non-stick” (steel or cast iron) pan and when it is hot, add the oil and the sprouts mix. Reduce to medium and let the sprouts brown. The trick to browning them is to not touch them once you added them to the pan. Wait for at least a minute or two before you shake the pan to turn the sprouts over. Once they are well browned all over (within 5-7 minutes). Take the pan off the heat and sprinkle 1 tsp of the Parmesan on to them. As the cheese melts shake up the pan and collect them in a bowl. Sprinkle with the other 2 tsp once they are a bit cooler.

My condition was progressively deteriorating over the past 2 years. I’d been good at taking my medicine and exercising so knew I should have felt better. My arthritis and scleroderma were really affecting my quality of life. Increasing pain and fatigue were wearing me down.

Dr. Jenny and Ajoy came well-recommended so I got in touch. I completed a short questionnaire before my consultation. Covid meant it was all done over VC. They put me at ease, and it was like we were in the same room. They asked all the right medical and lifestyle questions without judgement. They devised a plan which was holistic, realistic and easy to follow. Their gentle and knowledgeable coaching kept me on track.

The resulting decrease in swelling and pain has given me a new lease of life in a few weeks. I feel so much better and look so much happier. I felt they were genuinely interested in my well-being. Happy to highly recommend them.
