Sautéed Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Reduction [Vegan]



Cooking Time




  • 1 cup of balsamic vinegar
  • 1 pound fresh brussels sprouts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. For reduction, pour vinegar into a nonstick pan over high heat.
  2. Bring the vinegar to a boil and then reduce to a simmer, keeping the heat at low/medium.
  3. Once the quantity of vinegar has reduced by half, check for a syrupy consistency by dragging a spoon/knife through the mixture and making sure the track isn't filled immediately (as it would be by a liquid).
  4. Transfer to a airtight container and let cool before using.
  5. Next, heat oil over low to medium heat in a pan. Add brussels sprouts and toss so that they're all evenly coated in oil.
  6. Cook over low heat for 15-20 minutes, until brussels sprouts are browning and fragrant.
  7. Take off heat and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Immediately before serving, top brussels sprouts with balsamic reduction.
