Caramelized Brussels Sprouts

Patricia Reitz

Caramelized Brussels Sprouts with Pecans - ButterYum

I usually make Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts, but I wanted to try something different this time.  Thanks to Pinterest, I found this recipe - the combination of pecans, garlic, and brown sugar might sound a bit odd, but it works.  In fact, it works so well that my vegetable hating picky eater helped himself to 3 servings.  Use the feed tube of a food processor to quickly slice the sprouts into ribbons - once you have that done, the dish is complete in less than 10 minutes.  Don't let my horrible nighttime photo scare you away - give this one a try!

Caramelized Brussels Sprouts

from Eat, Live, Run

serves 4

12-14 large Brussels sprouts

1 tbsp olive oil

1 clove garlic, minced

pinch sea salt

2 tbsp brown sugar

1/4 cup roughly chopped pecans or walnuts, toasted

Slice each Brussels sprout very thin until you have a mound of feathery Brussels sprout ribbons. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat and saute garlic for 30-60 seconds. Add the Brussels sprouts and salt; saute for another 5-6 minutes until the sprouts are bright green and tender. Add the brown sugar and pecans: to together well.  Serve immediately.
