Brussels sprouts browned in a crunchy, toasted pecan butter make for a simple yet sophisticated side dish!


  • 2 cups Brussels sprouts
  • 1/4 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Earth Balance
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • pinch salt


  1. Trim off the bottoms and any wilted outer leaves of Brussels sprouts, cut a small “X” in the bottoms to promote even cooking.
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  3. Add Brussels sprouts to water and boil for 10 minutes. Drain and immediately plunge into ice bath. Cut Brussels sprouts in half.
  4. In a medium sized skillet, heat Earth Balance over medium heat. Add pecans and cook for 2 minutes or until mixture is fragrant.
  5. Lay the Brussels sprouts flat on the skillet and cook over medium-high heat until lightly browned. Toss and brown the other side.
  6. Add the brown sugar, lemon juice, and salt, toss to combine.
  7. Spoon Brussels sprouts into a serving dish and top with browned pecans.
