Marmite Sprouts | Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly

Unless you have been living under a rock for the last week you will have seen that Iceland is selling Marmite Sprouts as part of its 2018 Christmas range. Opinions of Brussels Sprouts are as diverse as Marmite, and this combo has got everyone one talking!

Though it may sound like an odd combination, there is logic behind combining Marmite and sprouts.  The salty richness of the Marmite enhances the sweetness of the sprouts and really elevates this side dish!

Yeast extract like Marmite is also suitable for vegetarians and vegans, so these Marmite Sprouts make a great alternative to the bacon fried version.

However, if you love bacon with your sprouts you must try our Brussels Sprouts with Bacon recipe!
