When you brown butter, as in this recipe, the flavor intensifies so adding just a little to Brussels sprouts still makes a big impact.

  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons slivered almonds, toasted (see Tip)
  • 1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Add Brussels sprouts, cover and steam until tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Cook, swirling often, until the butter turns a nutty brown, 1 to 3 minutes. Stir in oil and scrape into a large bowl with a rubber spatula. Add the Brussels sprouts, almonds, vinegar, dill, salt and pepper and toss to combine.
  • Tip: To toast slivered almonds, place in a small dry skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.

I love this recipe. It has a nice tart component that matches well with the brussel sprouts, my toddler even likes them
