Spectacular Brussels Sprouts

Spectacular Brussels Sprouts
These Brussels Sprouts are REALLY good! How good? Well, let's just put it this way: tonight, when
we sat down to Pizza for dinner, my little girl looked at me with disappointed eyes, and said, "But where are the Brussels Sprouts?" Yup - they're that good!

They're simple to fix, too.

This recipe was shared with me by my Sister some years ago.

Browning the Buttery Spread here (as with Dairy Butter) dramatically changes its flavor, allowing you to use much less fat than you might otherwise be accustomed to using, but still having LOTS of flavor!

Here's the dish:

Spectacular Brussels Sprouts
Sauteeing the Pecans in Browned Buttery Spread
Steam as desired.
Brussels Sprouts 24 ounces (1 1/2 pounds)
I like them fork-tender, which took 8 minutes in my microwave by this method.
Meanwhile, Heat till deep golden Brown
1 Tablespoon Vegan Buttery Spread, such as Earth Balance Soy Free
It's fun to buy the Sprouts still on the Stalk. My little one wanted
to decorate this "Brussels Tree" for Christmas!
Then add to buttery spread and sautee for several minutes, till toasted & fragrant, stirring

A handful of chopped Pecans
Steamed Brussels Sprouts (above), and toss till heated. If they brown a tiny bit, that's even better!
Salt & Pepper to taste (don't skimp here!)

Serve & Enjoy!

  1. Perfecto! LOVE Roasted Brussell Sprouts! They look and sound wonderful!

  2. I am a huge fan of brussel sprouts so this recipe really caught my attention! I can't wait to try it. I am probably the only person in my family who currently eats brussel sprouts, but I am hoping that this recipe may convert them! Let's hope so! Thank you so much for sharing this valuable post with us on the Healthy, Happy, Green and Natural Party Hop! We sincerely appreciate it!

    1. Thanks so much, Deborah, hope your family likes them! : )

  3. We really like Brussel Sprouts and I am so excited to try this recipe this week!! Thanks.


Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology. (at the current moment, I cannot manage to reply to posts on my blog at all -despite repeated attempts to do so. I DO appreciate your comments, and hopefully this glitch will be fixed soon! )

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
