Roasted sprouts with tahini dressing

Serves 4

Preheat the oven to 200˚C/180˚C fan/gas mark 6. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Cut 400g Brussels sprouts in half lengthwise and place in a bowl. Drizzle with 2 tbsp olive oil, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Transfer the sprouts to the prepared baking tray, spacing them out as much as possible. Roast for 25 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine 90g tahini, 2 crushed garlic cloves, 2 tbsp lemon juice and some salt and pepper. If the dressing is too thick, add a splash or two of water until it reaches your desired consistency. Place the roasted sprouts in a serving bowl, drizzle with the tahini dressing and toss to coat.

Add to the sprouts, along with the bacon fat. Drizzle over 1 tbsp olive oil and season with salt and plenty of black pepper. Bake for 20 minutes, or until just beginning to brown on the top. Scatter 40g grated Parmesan over the top and return to the oven for 3-4 minutes until the cheese has melted. Serve immediately.
