  • 1 pound fresh Brussels sprouts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup of balsamic vinegar or tarragon infused vinegar or your favorite flavor
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds or substitute sliced almonds
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a vegetable steamer, cook the Brussels sprouts until a fork will easily pierce them about 1/3 the way through. Don’t overcook.
  2. Remove them promptly and slice them in half through the stem.
  3. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium high heat.
  4. Quickly place all the Brussels sprouts, cut side down, in the skillet and let them cook until they begin to brown.
  5. Add the vinegar, reduce the heat to low, letting the Brussels sprouts sit in the skillet until the vinegar has either been boiled away or is thick and syrupy.
  6. Toss the Brussel sprouts with the sesame seeds.
  7. Add the salt and pepper and serve hot.
