great flavour and is also incredibly versatile
The vegetable gets its fantastic flavour by combining the complex taste of the sprout with the mild, sweet 'nutty' taste of the kale.
The result is a vegetable which has not only a great flavour but is also incredibly versatile and can be cooked in a variety of ways; in fact the Flower Sprout may well be one of the most versatile vegetables out there!
It's strong enough to cope with the rigours of stir frying whilst delicate enough to be delicious after just a simple steaming.
This new British vegetable was launched by Marks and Spencer in January 2010 and has returned to their shelves every winter ever since. Flower Sprout® is a true seasonal vegetable; it can't be grown in summer so you will only ever find it in on sale from November until March.
Of course the great thing about a new vegetable is discovering the fantastic range of ways it can be used. Take a look at the recipes created by the respected development chef Mal Fry for some inspiration. Or why not send us your recipe ideas; any recipes we like will win a vegetable cookbook.
The Flower Sprout® is a brand new vegetable featuring a small green and purple sprout with curly leaves. The Flower Sprout® is a cross between two real 'Superfoods', Brussels sprouts and British kale.
