caramelized brussels sprouts

by jenna on October 19, 2011

I returned from our camping trip on Monday craving water and vegetables.

I certainly don’t mean to whine and boast that “I survived off nothing but peanut butter and hot dogs”, when in reality it was exactly the opposite. I survived our camping trip off of red wine and rich food. Naturally, it was all delicious but as I finished the last buttery crumb of my ginger scone from a Big Sur Bakery run early Monday morning (worth every bite by the way!), I vowed my next meal would be a little…greener.

And as I flopped my backpack down on the floor of my house upon finally getting home later that day, I knew I needed brussels sprouts.

But not just any brussels sprouts! Whispery little brussels sprout ribbons seared in olive oil and garlic, caramelized with brown sugar, and tossed with toasted pecans.

A version of this was the first recipe I ever made from a blog, back in 2007. I was in culinary school and just beginning to discover the realm of food blogs, 101 Cookbooks being my first and absolute favorite. Heidi makes a version of these sweet shredded brussels and tosses them with crispy pan-fried tofu, a meal that me fall in love with food blogs forever.

Since then, I’ve experimented a little with the recipe and created a go-to dish that I make whenever I want to feel “healthy” (usually made after a wine and food-filled weekend or vacation) without sacrificing any flavor . These brussels sprouts are quick, easy and taste great on their own or paired with a protein or grain. The other night I ate them with some whole wheat cous-cous on the side and it was the perfect “green” meal I was craving.

I’m telling you—even if you “think” you hate brussels sprouts, try this. It will make a believer out you!

Caramelized Brussels Sprouts

serves 2-4 as a side-dish

adapted from 101 cookbooks

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

Slice each brussels sprout very thin until you have a mound of feathery brussels sprout ribbons. Heat the olive oil over medium high in a large skillet and saute the garlic for 30 seconds. Add the brussels sprouts and continue sauteing for another 4-5 minutes, until bright green and tender. Add the sea salt and brown sugar and toss together. Finish by adding the toasted nuts.

Time:

20 minutes

Ohmygoodness. I love brussel sprouts! I never thought of using brown sugar with them though, as I usually just toss them with olive oil and throw them in the oven to roast.

Are they very sweet with the sugar? Roo hates anything sweet, that in his mind, should be savory. Or do these just add an extra crunch to the dish?

The pecans are a total win though. Seriously, who hates pecans?

Brussel sprouts and I have an interesting past.
When I was younger I used to “hate” them, mainly because my favorite TV characters did too. But then, when I became a foodie, I decided to try them again and I fell in LOVE! I probably eat brussel sprouts every other day. Is that weird? ;-)

Oh my goodness, this looks heavenly! Brussels sprouts get the rough end of the stick sometimes…I think they’re a gem, no?

Brussels sprouts…be still thy heart. I usually roasted them at home or always order them at a downtown restaurant where they shred, pan fry, and add capers, parm, and lemon juice.

Faith @ For the Health of It October 19, 2011 at 4:51 am

I’m usually not into brussels sprouts – I can only think of one time I’ve actually enjoyed them (in a gnocchi with lemon butter) but this looks so different from the usual “roast with salt and pepper” method that I’ll have to give them another shot.

Sabrina @ Radioactive Runner October 19, 2011 at 4:53 am

I have to admit, the only reason I eat brussel sprouts is because they are healthy. I am definitely going to try this recipe though and I think it may possibly change my mind and the next time I can say, I eat them because I LIKE them!

I was never a big fan of brussels sprouts until one year, my mom simply roasted them with some olive oil, rosemary, salt and pepper. Suddenly I was hooked — so much so that I ate a plate of brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes and a biscuit for breakfast the morning after Thanksgiving last year! yum…

I’ve never tried Brussels Sprouts shredded but I am intrigued. These look delicious! My husband refuses to eat them when I roast them, but I may be able to fool him into eating them if I shred them. . . .

mmm brussels are my favorite veggie, but I always buy them frozen I wonder if I could get that shredded technique down with frozen veggies or not.

Reply

Denise Hall November 24, 2011 at 4:20 pm

yes, shredding them works great with frozen ones…just microwave them a few seconds to thaw them a bit for slicing. ive been preparing them that way for years now. love it! ^^

Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga October 19, 2011 at 5:28 am

They look great and I love that you added brown sugar to the recipe.

In many raw foodie circles, raw brussels are common and the way people do it is by chiffonad’ing or making ribbons out of them. I mean, chomping into a brussel otherwise is pretty hardcore.

Love these pics, Jenna!

I have always been a little “scared” of brussel sprouts. I don’t know why, but I’ve just never tried them with the fear that they’d be really gross. However, this post has inspired me to try them – they look SO good in your photos, and this recipe sounds great. Hopefully my feelings will change after I prepare them like this! Thanks! :)

I love all of these brussel sprout loving commenters! I too learned my love of brussel sprouts just about a year ago… But it bums me out because I’ll be at the store and go “oooo brussel sprouts!” and usually anybody I’m with will respond with an “eh, no thanks.” If only they knew!
As some people have said before, maybe this could be a good gateway brussel sprout dish haha

Emmy (Wine and Butter) October 19, 2011 at 9:20 am

I’ve just started a detox this week, which I WISH included those brussel sprouts! I am totally obsessed with roasted brusells sporuts (can’t spell it, never will be able to). I love them ‘marinated’ in maple syurp, olive oil, balsamic and mustard – and then smothered in salt and pepper! Its definitely one of my most favourite recipes EVER, although my husband disagrees when I say they taste like candy. whatever!

I loooooooove roasted brussels sprouts, but always slice them in half, toss with olive oil, freshly-ground sea salt, and freshly-ground pepper, and SOMETIMES fresh garlic. I’m a purist… I often don’t even use the garlic, although I LOVE garlic. but I have never thought of cutting them into ribbons. I’m not sold on the brown sugar… it’s not that I don’t think it would be good, but I leave it out when caramelizing onions, too… I don’t want additional sweetness. But mmmmmmmmmmm…. the idea of brussels sprouts and pan-friend tofu… I AM MAKING THIS TOMORROW!!!

I made this recipe last night for dinner with my boyfriend. The recipe was so easy, we did all the prep/cooking for this dish while our turkey legs and sweet potatoes were roasting in the oven. The brussel sprouts were delicious, my bf and I both had some, then I couldn’t help myself I finished the rest before having some turkey.

He was eating it off of everyone else’s plate and asked me to make it again. Next time I’ll cook it a little longer than the directions since I thought it was a little too crunchy. I’ll also make more since it shrinks down a lot.

This is AMAZING. Everyone who tries it loves it. Make it REALLY amazing by cooking bacon, removing bacon, cooking the shredded brussels sprouts in bacon fat, then adding the rest of the ingredients (plus the chopped up bacon!). It’s so good, the best way to eat brussels sprouts by far.

My sister-in-law re-introduced me to Brussels sprouts a few years ago and o.m.g. Her version had bacon, and, well, we know how that went. Needless to say, from then on, I’m a believer. A born again brussels sprouts believer!

Must try this version. I always need something green and crunchy after a glutinous vacation. Thanks for sharing.

This is hands down my new favorite ! I am cooking dinner for my boyfriends parents for the first time soon and this will be involved! I made a few substitutions due to what I had on hand… I mixed olive and coconut oil (I use coconut oil in almost everything) and instead or pecans I did thin almond slices and dried cranberries ! Oh my so good!

Reply

Cindy July 27, 2013 at 6:24 pm

I like brussels sprouts but these just weren’t good. They didn’t caramelize at all. The sugar I added just kind turned into a sweet syrup. I also think the 2 tbsp of sugar was too much and they were way too sweet. I ended up not adding the pecans because I was too busy trying to fix the sweetness, which I did a little with some added soy sauce.

Reply

JulieH November 28, 2013 at 4:03 pm

I made this for Thanksgiving dinner tonight and it was delicious. The sweetness of the brown sugar paired perfectly with the natural bitterness of the sprouts. I will definitely make thos again.
