Ingredients

  • ½ cup (140g) greek-style yoghurt
  • 75 grams blue cheese, crumbled
  • ½ teaspoon wholegrain mustard
  • ½ teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lime rind
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh chives
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh mint
  • rice bran oil, for shallow-frying
  • 1 kilogram brussels sprouts, trimmed, halved

Method

  • 1
    Process yoghurt, blue cheese, mustard and honey until smooth. Transfer to a bowl; season to taste.
  • 2
    Combine rind and herbs in a small bowl; season.
  • 3
    Heat oil in a medium frying-pan over medium-high heat; shallow-fry sprouts, in batches, for 2 minutes or until golden but still green. Drain on paper towel.
  • 4
    Place sprouts in a large bowl; sprinkle with herb mixture, then toss to combine. Serve sprouts with blue cheese yoghurt for dipping.

Notes

If you prefer less oil, lightly coat brussels sprouts with cooking oil spray and grill or barbecue. Any blue cheese will work here, and lemon instead of lime is also delicious. If serving as a side dish, drizzle the blue cheese yoghurt over the sprouts.
