Roasted Balsamic Brussels Sprouts



I was lucky I didn't grow up in a household where my mom put the fear of brussels sprout in me. I welcomed veggies at a young age. Though, I didn't always eat them as I should have. I preferred the unhealthy stuff over the healthy. At last now, I try to get as much vegetable as I can. I also never really got why kids disliked them. I look at them now and I see that they're cute little things. They're baby cabbages.

I decided to cook them in a simple way. Roasted. Well, also be cause I was clueless as to how else I can cook them. Roasting veggies seems like an obvious choice. Plus, I also like the way roasted veggies taste. It was a win-win situation on my part. Tossed in some extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt. and lightly sprinkled some shredded cheese on top to garnish. Again super simple, yet oh-so-delicious.

So eat up on those brussels sprouts. There's nothing to be afraid of.

Serves 2-3

These roasted brussel sprouts look amazing! I love that you call them little cabbages. When I was at the Mexican market they had brussel sprouts and had them labeled "mini cabbages"...sooooo cute!

I liked brussel sprouts growing up, too - even though they were boiled. Now, having had them roasted, I think they're amazing! These look especially yummy!

Yay for brussel sprouts! TJ's is selling them on the stalk (I did not even knew that they grew on a stalk lol). I like the idea of roasting them, simple & low maintenance. I think I shall use lemon juice instead of vinegar on mine : D

I love roasted brussels sprouts! The balsamic sounds fantastic with them too. Hey, congrats on being in the FB top 9 today!

Brussel sprouts are my FAVORITE vegetable. We just planted some seeds, and I check on the seedlings every day because I can't wait to have sprouts from the garden. They're growing way too slowly... Our family tradition is to serve them every year for Thanksgiving, so your recipe will come in handy. Thanks!

Congrats on making the Top 9 on foodbuzz! I have to admit I've always been a pretty big fan of brussels sprouts too, and my man really loves them.

I've never tried roasting them before - normally I just boil them, but this seems like a really interesting change. Thanks for the recipe

Hoping to squeeze sprouts on the Thanksgiving menu. When they are roasted, even the haters will like them.

Kathleen said...

I love Brussels sprouts... these look wonderful. I am all for roasting things with Balsamic vinegar! Roasted veggies are the best in cooler weather!
