300g brussels sprouts (rinse and cut in half)

100g streaky bacon (cut in pieces)

2Tbsp Parsley (chopped)

Few grinds of black pepper

Put a medium size pot on the stove with salted water and bring to a boil. Blanch brussels sprouts for 2 minutes and transfer to a bowl of cold water to delay the cooking process.

In a smoking hot pan, toast the walnuts. Once toasted remove and set aside.

Wipe the pan, add bacon and fry until crispy. Transfer bacon to a separate dish and add sprouts to the same pan with the remaining bacon fat.

Cook the sprouts to a chard green finish, then add butter, Banhoek Chilli Oil, balsamic vinegar and honey. Cook on a high/heat flame for about 2 minutes, then add bacon, nuts, chopped parsley and dried chilli. Season to taste, serve and enjoy!
