In our household we love brussels sprouts! Whether it’s a shaved brussels sprout salad or steamed brussels sprouts, we can always appreciate good brussels sprouts. So how can you make them 10x tastier? add some garlic and balsamic glaze and voila! I guarantee someone who doesn’t like brussels sprouts will start loving it after eating this recipe! It’s so quick, easy, delish, and a perfect side to any dish!
Balsamic Brussels Sprouts
1 1/2 lb brussels sprouts, cleaned, trimmed and cut in half lengthwise
1/4 cup olive oil
10-15 cloves of garlic, peeled (keep whole)
1 tablespoon balsamic glaze (click link or see tips below)
Salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 450° F. In a bowl, mix together the brussels sprouts, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread them onto a flat baking sheet in one layer. Roast 20 minutes until brown and crisp. Take out the baking sheet from the oven and toss them around to cook all sides. Put back the baking sheet into the oven for about another 10 minutes to finish roasting. The brussel sprouts should be brown, crispy, and the garlic still tender. Mix in the balsamic glaze. Transfer the brussel sprout to platter and serve warm (they taste the best straight out of the oven!).
-To make a small portion of balsamic glaze, simply boil 1 cup of balsamic vinegar and 1/2 cup of honey or sugar in a small saucepan. Once boiling, reduce heat to a simmer until the glaze reduces by half, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature. Keep in airtight container in the fridge to keep fresh–it won’t ever go bad!
