Brussel Sprouts with almonds

Category: Side Dishes

Suitable for a: vegan diet



I never used to like brussels sprouts, until one day I had them when they weren't over-cooked. Still just a little bit crunchy, they had a wonderfully nutty flavor. Now I love them, especially with brown rice and butter.

1 lb fresh brussels sprouts

4-6 Tbsp Earth Balance

1/2 onion, chopped

Salt and Pepper

1 teaspoon lemon juice fresh squeezed

1/4 cup toasted slivered almonds



Boil in water or steam brussels sprouts for 3-4 minutes until just tender. Split one open to see if it has cooked to the middle. Strain and place in a bowl of ice water to keep the color bright green. Cut into halves.

Sauté onions in 2-3 Tbsp of Earth balance in a wide sauté pan until the onions are translucent. Add the brussels sprout halves and 2-3 Tbsp more of Earth Balance and cook on medium high heat for several more minutes, until the sprouts have reached your desired level of doneness. Add salt and pepper to taste while the sprouts are cooking. Whatever you do, do not over-cook, as the sprouts will be bitter.

Remove from heat, toss in half of the toasted slivered almonds and the lemon juice. Add salt and pepper if needed. Put into serving dish and garnish with the rest of the toasted almonds

PERFECT for Thanksgiving!! I sometimes use filberts instead of almonds. Very festive!
