A twist on the classic Caesar salad. You need a food processor or mandolin for this salad! If you do not have one, substitute the sprouts for romaine lettuce or kale. You can turn this salad into a lunch or dinner meal by adding roasted chickpeas, bacon, fried chicken breast, tomatoes, etc.

Season: Autumn/ Winter
Servings: 8
Diet: Vegetarian
Time: 30 minutes
Difficulty: Easy


Ingredients :
• 1 kg. sprouts
• 1 baguette
• A few sprigs of rosemary
• 15 gr. parsley
• 60 gr. grated Parmesan

Caesar dressing:
• 2 egg yolks
• 1,5 lemon
• 1 clove garlic
• 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
• 10 anchovy fillets
• 90 gr. Parmesan
• 1 tsp. mustard
• 50 ml. extra virgin olive oil
• 70 ml. sunflower oil

Preparation:
1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
2. Set the mandolin mode on the food processor and chop the Brussels sprouts into thin slices in the machine. If you are using a mandolin, slice the sprouts one by one.
3. Cut the baguette into cubes and add the rosemary, a generous dash of olive oil and salt and pepper and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes until golden brown and crispy.
4. Meanwhile, make the dressing. Add the egg yolks, lemon juice, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, anchovies, mustard and Parmesan to the food processor and blend until smooth. Now slowly add the olive oil and sunflower oil while the machine is still mixing and season with salt and pepper. You can also do this with a hand blender.
5. Mix the dressing well through the sprouts and leave to stand for a while, preferably at least half an hour. Finish the salad with some chopped parsley, the croutons and grated Parmesan.
