Saute’ Brussels Sprouts with Ham

What a weekend!

My mom last days in Shanghai and all the last minute errands, shooting for the first cooking video tutorial, a new project I’m participating and that I am very excited about. I will share more with you as soon as more detailed will be finalized. For now it is still in a pioneer stage


And on Sunday I had a cooking demo with LeCreuset to show people how they could prepare 3 different meals with just one pot. I made Chicken and mushrooms in white wine sauce, using LC non stick pan

One-pot pasta with LC Marmitte

LC cooking demo 2

and my butter squash and carrot soup with ginger and rosemary.

No need to say I had a blast and even if it was a very busy weekend, I felt happy and energized.

Despite my hectic schedule, I even found the time to make my mom a nice lunch on Sunday, we had a tuna loaf and this Brussels sprouts as a side.  Here is the recipe of you want to try make them at home 🙂

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 500 g fresh Brussels Sprouts
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 50 g ham, chopped
  • 1 tsp salt

Remove external leaves from the Brussels sprouts and wash them then put them in a pot and cover’em in water


Boil them for about 20 min then remove and set aside


In the same pot, I used my French Oven, pour 1 tbsp. of olive oil, add the chopped ham


and sauté’ it a couple of minutes on medium heat


Add the Brussels Sprouts, stir around, adjust with salt and cook for a couple of minutes.


Turn of the heat and serve.
