Ingredients

  • 3½ tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp mirin or Sherry
  • pinch of sugar
  • 500g Brussels sprouts, roughly chopped
  • 1 red chilli, shredded (optional)

Method

  1. Toast the sesame seeds and, while they are still hot, use a pestle and mortar to grind all but ½ tbsp until almost powder-like. Mix the soy and mirin into the crushed seeds, along with the sugar and 2 tsp water.

  2. Heat a large wok, then stir-fry the sprouts with a splash of water until softened but still crunchy. Stir through the sesame paste, then scatter with the remaining sesame seeds and the chilli, if using.
