I originally found this recipe in a booklet from “Kom op tegen kanker“, a flemish initiative to raise awareness funds against cancer. It is a typical flemish autumn dish, healthy and easy to make.  My original version in dutch can be found here.

Ingredients (4 persons):

  • 1 kg brussels sprouts
  • 600gr potatoes
  • 500gr minced poultry meat
  • 0,5l vegetable of chicken broth
  • one can of chopped tomatoes (400gr)
  • salt, pepper and paprika to taste
  • a little bit of nutmeg
  • some fresh vegetables of the season (onion, garlic, parsley, celery, chives)


  • Clean the sprouts.
  • Peal the potatoes and cut them into cubes.
  • Prepare the additional fresh vegetables.
  • Boil the broth and cook the potatoes and the sprouts for 15 minutes in it.
  • Meanwhile prepare meatballs from the minced meat, try to make them the same size as the brussels sprouts.
  • Add the tomatoes, the vegetables and the meatballs.
  • Let it simmer for another 15 minutes.
  • Add nutmeg, salt, pepper and paprika powder and serve immediately.
