Method

  • 01
  • Heat butter and 1 tbsp oil in a saucepan over medium heat, add onion and garlic and stir occasionally until onion softens and starts to caramelise (10 minutes). Add apple, potato and parsnip and stir to combine, then add stock and oregano, season to taste and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until potato and parsnip are tender (15-20 minutes). Blend with a hand-held blender, then add cream, stir to combine and season to taste.

Heat remaining oil in a frying pan, add sprout hearts and fry, turning occasionally, until golden (2-3 minutes), then set aside on a plate and keep warm. Add Brussels sprout leaves to pan and fry until just starting to soften (30 seconds-1 minute).
  • 04
