Recipe: Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts

Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

I'm not going to lie. I spent years HATING Brussels sprouts. I found them bitter and gross and would beg to not have to eat them. Then, a few years ago, I signed up for a produce delivery from a CSA, where each week I would receive local, in season produce.

Part of the delivery for a few weeks included Brussels sprouts. Since I try to avoid throwing away food whenever possible, I tried making them several different ways until I found a few I really liked.

This particular recipe is one of my favourites because it's easy, it only involves 3 ingredients (plus salt & pepper), and my kids will actually eat them. You may never look at Brussels sprouts the same way again.

Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

Serves 4 as a side


4 cups Brussels Sprouts
2-3 tbsp.Olive Oil
1-2 tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar
Salt & Pepper

Preheat oven to 375F

1- Wash sprouts and cut the hard bottom off each, and then cut the Brussels sprouts in half, lengthwise. In an oven safe casserole dish, place the sprouts so that they are lying on a single layer. Pour about 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil over the sprouts, and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat.

2- Cook sprouts for 15 minutes. Remove from heat, and pour about 1-2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar over the sprouts, and toss. Return to oven for another 10 minutes. Toss & serve.

Serve while hot!
