Brewin’ with Brandi: Espresso Balsamic Glazed Brussel Sprouts
Brussel sprouts, you either love them or you hate them. Well at least that's how it used to be back in the day. We here at Seattle Coffee Gear have gone through extensive testing (and tasting!) and are proud to announce that these Espresso Balsamic Glazed Brussel Sprouts will change anyone's mind when it comes to brussel sprouts. Seriously, these little things are delicious.
The secret to their deliciousness is a result of the cooking process and the flavorful glaze. The Philips AirFryer uses its Rapid Air Technology to crisp up foods without the use of excess oil. The result is a texture that is absolutely amazing. Add that to the deep flavors of the balsamic and espresso glaze and you are in for a real treat.
Enjoy these espresso balsamic glazed brussel sprouts by themselves or pair them with some grilled chicken to make a meal that will surely become a weeknight staple. Watch the video below to see how easily Brandi and Kaylie put this recipe together.
- 1/2 pound fresh brussel sprouts
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/3 cups balsamic vinegar
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 shots espresso
- 1/4 tsp oregano
Espresso Balsamic Glaze
In a 2-quart saucepan combine the balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, espresso, oregano, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Heat to boiling on medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; simmer 10 to 15 minutes or until thickened and slightly syrupy. Set aside and let cool.
Remove any tough or bruised outer leaves. Trim the stems. Cut in half vertically. Rinse and shake dry. In a bowl, toss with olive oil and pat dry. Toss with balsamic glaze, pat dry again. Save some glaze for drizzling after the brussel sprouts are cooked.
For AirFrying with Philips Airfryer
Preheat Philips Airfryer to 390 degrees. Add prepared brussel sprouts to basket and set timer for 12-15 minutes. While cooking, occasionally remove and shake basket or stir. The brussel sprouts are done when the centers are tender and the outsides are caramelized and slightly crispy.
Drizzle with left over reduction and enjoy!
