Lowly Misunderstood Brussels Sprouts

It seems that there’s not too many folks that are “sitting-on-the-fence” when it comes to brussels sprouts… you either like them or you hate them.  For those that fall into the former category, here’s a tasty way to “dress up” plain ole brussels sprouts.   This might even tempt the haters to give them a try, too.

Roasted Balsamic Brussels Sprouts
  • 2 pounds (lbs) brussels sprouts
  • 3/4 teaspoon (tsp) garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon (tsp) sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon (tsp) freshly ground black pepper
  • 3-4 tablespoons (Tbsp) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2-3 teaspoons (tsp) balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup freshly-grated parmesan cheese (plus more for topping)
Preheat the oven to 400° degrees.

Trim the ends off of the sprouts and slice them in half length-wise.

Combine the rest of the ingredients in a mixing bowl -- thoroughly mixing all of the ingredients.

Add the sprouts to the mixing bowl and toss to completely cover the sprouts with the mixture.

Place the sprouts, in a single layer, on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes (until the sprouts have softened and turned lightly brown).

Remove the tray from the oven, drizzle the sprouts lightly with balsamic vinegar (to taste) and sprinkle (light to heavy, depending on your personal preference) with grated parmesan cheese.

Serve warm and ENJOY!

Happy Homesteading!
