Healthy and Delicious Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Hello there LOVElies! I hope this post finds you well and old man winter isn’t getting you down. Hopefully this post will lift your spirits and get you back to your happy place, cooking up some magic in the kitchen!

So here is the deal:

I recently went to a wedding and was inspired to share this balsamic roasted brussels sprout recipe.

Why?

They served brussels sprouts at the buffet and they totally stole the show. I am not kidding, there was a comical the buzz around these brussels sprouts! They upstaged the pork tenderloin, the steak filets… all the typical wedding buffet stars.

“Everything is delicious but did you try the brussels sprouts?”

“You have got to go back to the buffet line for the brussels sprouts, they are to die for!”

SERIOUSLY?

I was laughing the entire way to my empty plate and so inspired to give my childhood villian another shot! Yes, I hated brussels spouts as a kid and I am sure I am not alone in that camp. I promise that this recipe will win over even the biggest skeptic!

Best of all:

They are so so so good for you, filling, and YUMMY.  A one cup serving will provide you with all the Vitamin C you need for the day. So if you are fighting that cold.. open your heart (and mouth) to some brussels sprouts. They are a great side dish, vegan friendly. I added in some red pepper in this recipe to add some color and variety but you can throw a variety of sister veggies, mushrooms maybe?

If you are looking to turn this recipe into a full meal, just add some skirt steak! Mix up some extra balsamic glaze and mix it all in together for a delicious meal!

Get roastin’ guys!
