Glazed Sweet Potatoes, Sprouts, Chestnuts and Cranberries


Glazed Sweet Potatoes, Sprouts, Chestnuts and Cranberries

  1. Heat up a heavy bottomed pan, add the fennel seeds and cover and dry them out for a couple of minutes, making sure they do not burn.
  2. Add the sprouts, sweet potatoes, garlic, bay leaf and the thyme. Cover and shake the pan so that the vegetables warm up but do not burn.
  3. Add a little stock and cover - the steam will start to cook the vegetables. You might need to repeat this a couple of times depending on how cooked you like your vegetables (make sure the pan is dry before adding more stock).
  4. When the vegetables are cooked to your liking, add the chestnuts, and warm them up.
  5. Remove from the heat, and add the cranberries, honey, butter, some rapeseed oil and the black pepper. Toss everything together, adjust the seasoning and serve.


  • If using dry cranberries, boil them in water for a few 4 minutes to plump them up.
