This charred Brussels sprouts with almonds recipe is so good it's a meal all by itself.


  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. course ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Cut the stems off of each Brussels sprout and discard. Cut the sprouts in half and place in a large bowl. Toss with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.
  2. Heat the grill to high. Then, reduce to medium-high. Place a vegetable grill basket on the grill and add in the sprouts. Close the lid. Grill for 5 minutes, opening the lid and stirring every minute.
  3. After 5 minutes, push all of the sprouts into a pile and pour on the balsamic vinegar and soy sauce. Stir to coat. Close the lid. Grill for 3 more minutes, stirring every minute.
  4. Reduce the heat to low. Add the almonds and lemon juice. Leave the lid open and cook for 2 more minutes stirring often.
