Method:

  1. Heat up a heavy bottomed pan and add the fennel seeds. Cover and dry them out for a couple of minutes, making sure that they do not burn.
  2. Add the sprouts, sweet potatoes, the garlic head (cut in half), bay leaf and the thyme. Cover and shake the pan so that the vegetables will warm up but not burn.
  3. Add a little stock and cover. The steam will start to cook the vegetables.
  4. You might need to repeat step 3 a couple of times, depending on how cooked you like your vegetables (make sure that the pan is dry before adding more stock).
  5. When the vegetables are cooked to your liking, add the chestnuts, and warm them up.
  6. Remove from the fire; add the cranberries, honey, butter, some rapeseed oil and the black pepper. Toss altogether, adjust the seasoning and serve.

Tip: If using dry cranberries, boil them in water for a few minutes to plump them up.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
