It seems you either like them or you don’t. But Brussels Sprouts are so traditionally Christmassy that it is nearly a must to include them with a meal at this time of the year. Do try this soup, it has a lovely flavor and you can also make it with any left over Brussels sprouts.

You will need:

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion
500g Brussels Sprouts
100g potatoes
One clove garlic
1 liter organic vegetable stock
50 ml single cream, optional, I leave it out
1 teaspoon coriander seeds
Two spoons chopped parsley
One local sausage for garnish and if you do not live on the island use a Continental Style Sausage such as Toulouse

Sauté the onion and garlic in the olive oil. Add all the other ingredients expect for the sausage.
Bring to boil and simmer for 45 minutes.
In the meantime, mash up the sausage meat and cook it unti it becomes crispy in a non stick pan. Keep aside for garnish.
Remove the soup from the heat and allow to cool down slightly.
use a hand blender to bring to a very smooth consistency,
Garnish with the sausage meat and more parsley if you like.
Serve.
