Easy Roasted Brussels Sprouts

brussels 2

Some people say they don't like brussels sprouts. To them I say--have you ever had roasted brussels sprouts?

Roasted brussels sprouts are super easy to make, and remarkably delicious. If you're looking for an easy green addition to a meal, I would definitely give these a shot.

All you really need to do is slice off their stalk-y ends, cut them in half, coat them in a little bit of flavor, and throw them on a tray into the oven.

Easy Roasted Brussels Sprouts
What You'll Need:
1 lb brussels sprouts, trimmed and chopped in half
3 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp agave nectar (or maple syrup)

What You'll Need to Do:
Preheat oven to 375°F.

Place brussels sprouts in a large bowl, and add olive oil, salt and pepper. Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spread out the brussels sprouts, then place in the preheated oven. After they have been roasting for 20 minutes, drizzle 1tbsp of the agave nectar (or maple syrup) on top and give them a little stir. Cook for another 20 minutes or so, until they are beginning to brown and getting a little crispy.

After removing from the oven, toss with the remaining agave nectar and add the balsamic vinegar.



Tips and Tricks:
Don't like vinegar? No problem! The sprouts will also be tasty without. And don't be afraid to experiment with adding in a few of your favorite herbs or spices--I love adding a little rosemary or thyme as well.
