  • brussels sprouts 400g, trimmed
  • tahini 3 tbsp
  • greek yogurt 2 tbsp
  • lemon 1, juiced
  • vegetable oil for frying


  • Step 1

    Make 3 horizontal cuts and 2 vertical cuts down into the leafy top of each sprout, cutting 2/3 deep.

  • Step 2

    Mix together the tahini, yogurt, lemon juice and some seasoning with 2-3 tbsp of water or until a drizzle-able consistency.

  • Step 3

    Fill a pan no more 1/3 full with oil and heat to 180C or until a cube of bread browns in 30 seconds. Fry the sprouts in batches for 3-4 minutes or until the edges are turning crisp and golden brown, and the sprouts are tender and starting to open up like a flower. Be careful as the oil can spit at first.

  • Step 4

    Drain onto kitchen paper and season. Serve with the dip.
