Caramelized Brussels Sprouts
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
I like this simple preperation for my Brussels sprouts. If you want to make them a bit more festive, add ½ tablespoon of dark brown sugar when you add the butter at the end.
Serves: 6
  • 1½ pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved lengthwise
  • ¼ cup vegetable stock
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper (or more to taste)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt (or more to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter (optional)
  1. Heat vegetable stock, salt and pepper in a large saute pan. Add the brussels sprouts and cook until tender and bright green. Add more stock if needed, stirring often. In the last few minutes of cooking, add the butter if using and cook until the undersides of the Brussels sprouts are caramelized a touch with a nice brown color.
  2. Serve with a sprinkle of parsley or lemon wedges.
