FILL a medium-sized pan with water and salt and bring to a boil. CLEAN the Brussels sprouts by taking off the tip with a small knife and if needed also remove the outer leaves.

COOK the sprouts shortly and re-use the same water for the potatoes. PEEL the potatoes and chop them into pieces. COOK the potatoes for about 10 minutes, depending on the size.
