Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

There are so many benefits to Brussels Sprouts!!  If you’ve never tried them… you should!  They’re DELICIOUS… and they are loaded with fiber, vitamin C, D, K and are low in calories. They’ve earned a bad rep ;)  So we ventured to one of our favorite food bloggers, Jane Lim, to try her Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe!!  It was amazing.  Crunchy and full of flavor.

Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut into quarters
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 1/2 tbsp parmesan cheese (preferably fresh grated)
  • 1 tbsp pine nuts (toasted)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 450 F.
  • Rinse, trim and cut brussels sprouts into quarters (Trader Joes sells packaged readied brussels sprouts)
  • In a medium sized bowl, toss the brussels sprouts, olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
  • Spread the brussels sprouts onto a parchment lined baking pan and bake for ~20-25 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a dry pan, toast the pine nuts for ~3 minutes until they start to brown (be careful not to burn them).
  • When brussels sprouts are done roasting, remove from oven and place it in a serving bowl/dish. Toss it with the parmesan cheese and sprinkle it with the toasted pine nuts.
  • Serve while hot. Enjoy!
