It might sound like a strange combination, but there’s logic behind combining Marmite and sprouts! This is because the salty richness of the Marmite enhances the sweetness of the sprouts and really helps to elevate this side dish.

Yeast extracts like Marmite are also suitable for vegetarians and vegans so this recipe makes a great alternative to our Brussels Sprouts With Bacon recipe.

Our Marmite Sprouts are fantastic all year round but especially tasty when served with your Christmas roast dinner!
