Nutrition Profile:


  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved

  • 2 medium shallots, divided

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided

  • 1 tablespoon canola or grapeseed oil

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 ¼ cups low-fat milk

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large pot fitted with a steamer basket. Add Brussels sprouts, cover and cook until very tender, about 15 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, thinly slice one of the shallots and toss with 1 tablespoon flour. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the sliced shallot and cook, stirring occasionally until crispy, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

  3. Mince the remaining shallot. Add butter to the pan and cook until melted. Add the minced shallot and cook until softened, about 1 minute. Whisk in the remaining 1 tablespoon flour, then milk, salt and pepper. Cook, whisking constantly, until thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in Parmesan. Stir the Brussels sprouts into the sauce. Serve topped with the crispy shallots.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
