Pan-Fried Festive Sprouts With Orange, Chorizo, Cranberries and Hazelnuts

Who knew that sprouts could be so sexy? One of the most delicious, super quick, flavoursome and nutritious dishes perfect for this festive season. It’s been one of the most popular and widely requested recipe posts on my Instagram  and, in my eyes, is the perfect accompaniment for Christmas lunch or just piled high in a bowl as a warming salad. A bright and colourful dish that will turn any brussels hater in to a sprout lover with just one mouthful (I can but hope!)
