Healthy Holiday Sides: Balsamic Roasted Brussel Sprouts

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again… Brussel sprouts can taste delicious! Don’t agree? Try this recipe! These oven roasted sprouts taste much better than the squishy green balls you were forced to eat as kid. They are smoky, crispy, and savory. I love how the balsamic turns into a thick glaze in the oven. And brussel sprouts are one of the healthiest foods you can eat! So along with all the cookies, cocktails, and treats you’re enjoying, sneak in some of these wholsome veggies. Maybe we should give brussel sprouts a new name…any ideas? While you think, I’ll get cooking!Balsamic Roasted BrusselsOven Roasted Brussels

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Rinse your sprouts. Then chop the ends off of the brussel sprouts and cut them in half. Add the garlic and brussel sprouts to a bowl. In another small bowl mix the vingear, olive oil, pepper flakes, and salt and pepper. Pour this mixture over the sprouts and toss until covered. Transfer to a lined baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, flip halfway through. That’s it! Brussels, before and afterThis is a perfect side dish to go with your holiday dinner. I might even try to convince my mom to add it to the Christmas dinner, and she HATES brussel sprouts…oh how the tables have turned. What side dishes are you having with your holiday dinner? I need more ideas in case she turns this one down! 🙂
