Today’s recipe is actually a little more complicated than just charred Brussel sprouts.
Today I’m going to show you how to make Charred Brussel Sprouts with Pecans, Goat Cheese and Pickled Red Onions. It’s a mouthful to say, but a joy to eat.
So let’s cracking.
You’ll need the following ingredients: Brussel sprouts, salt, pepper, pecans, red onions, apple cider vinegar, balsamic vinegar, sweetener and goat cheese.
You start by quick pickling 1/3 cup thinly sliced red onions. Mix them with 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, 1/4 water, 1/4 tsp salt and 2 teaspoons sweetener. Simmer for 3 minutes and then put the pickles in the refrigerator to chill.
Mix together 1 pound halved Brussel sprouts, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper and 2 TB extra virgin olive oil.
Pour the Brussel sprouts onto a large cookie sheet. Bake in a 425 degree oven for 15 minutes.
Add 1 TB balsamic vinegar and gently mix it into the Brussel sprouts. Add 1/4 cup pecans and bake for 5 minutes more.
Top the Brussel sprouts with 1/4 cup goat cheese crumbles and voilà.

I’ve included links in this post for the specialty products that I used. The best prices I’ve found are from Thrive Market which is like the Costco of health food. After you pay a $60 membership fee, you’ll be able to order low carb products at a discount of 25-50%. So the links in the recipe ingredients are links to the less expensive Thrive Market products. But I’ve also included Amazon links below to use if you don’t have a Thrive Market membership. Both kinds of links are affiliate links, so I’ll receive a commission if you buy something. Which is, honestly, a pretty sweet deal.2
