Winter sprouts (which, by the way, are a great source of protein, fibre, vitamins and antioxidants) aren’t just for Christmas dinner! This combination of pecans, chestnuts and sun-dried tomatoes will make them a staple in your house all season long.

Preheat oven to 180C/350F/Gas mark 4.

In preparation, soak the sun-dried tomatoes in boiling water for 10 minutes to reconstitute them. Chop and toast the pecans over medium heat to bring out their flavour.

Combine sprouts, chestnuts, drained sun-dried tomatoes and pecans in a large bowl. Add oil, salt, pepper and spices; toss well to coat. Spread out in a single layer in a roasting dish. Bake for 35 minutes or until sprouts are tender, stirring every 10 minutes. Remove from oven, drizzle with a little oil and serve.
