  • Toast the almonds on each side for a few minutes until golden brown, put to one side
  • Prepare the sprouts and thinly slice (see cooks tips)
  • Heat 2-3 Tbsp olive oil (see cooks tips) in a large frying pan or wok

  • Add 2 tbsp soy sauce and continue to stir fry for a few minutes until cooked, but still slightly crisp
  • Stir in the chopped bacon/pancetta

Cooks tips

  • You can blitz the sprouts in a blender, but the hand sliced method looks better
  • Add another tbsp of oil if required
  • The sprouts can be prepared a day before you need to cook, just put them in a freezer bag and keep in the fridge
  • Dry fry the bacon/pancetta in a non stick pan, there’s enough fat in the meat to cook

Equipment

  • Large frying pan or wok
  • Large serving bowl
