Honey Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe
These honey balsamic roasted Brussels sprouts are not only beyond easy to prepare, but I guarantee they will be gone in no time so make plenty! These will become your new healthy addiction.
I was never a big fan of Brussels sprouts until I tried them roasted. I always had them steamed, most of the time with just salt and pepper on top. But roasted? These Brussels sprouts are so good!
Some may think of them as mini cabbages, they look like them, but it is a compact and flavorful vegetable that when caramelized is irresistible and you will be popping these in your mouth-one after another.
Roasting the Brussels sprouts really gives them a nutty flavor and besides being super healthy, they are tasty.
What is my secret that makes them so good? I toss these little beauties in a honey and balsamic vinegar mixture after roasting for an incredible dimension in flavor. It sealed the deal for me.
It’s a great side dish or main dish for a meal. The balsamic vinegar makes it tangy, and the honey gives them some sweetness. When tossed with the roasted, caramelized Brussels sprouts- heaven.
