READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by sugarpea

Onions glazed with balsamic vinegar sweeten the flavor of the Brussels sprouts in this dish. It's colorful and texturally interesting with a garnish of chopped nuts.

A perfect blend of flavors that really compliment the sprouts. The sprouts were microwaved for a couple of minutes in lieu of boiling. Other than that made as directed.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil sprouts in salted water until tender but still bright green, about 4 minutes; drain and immerse in an ice bath; drain and cut in half.
  2. Saute sprouts, over medium high heat, in 1/2 tsp butter and 1/2 tsp oil until brown and crisp on edges, about 3 minutes; season with salt and pepper and place in serving bowl; cover and keep warm.
  3. Saute the onions in the same pan, over medium low heat, with the remaining 1 tsp butter and 1 tsp oil, until transparent, about 3-4 minutes; stand back to avoid fumes and add vinegar, deglazing the pan.
  4. Cook until vinegar is reduced and the onions are glazed, about 30 seconds; add to the sprouts and toss to combine; garnish with nuts, if desired; serve immediately.
