balsamic roasted brussels sprouts

Within the last year, I had an epiphany. I actually like brussels sprouts! I have a bad habit of thinking I remember how something tastes, that I haven’t tried in years, and firmly believing I don’t like it. If you’re like me, give it another try!


This recipe couldn’t be simpler and with the tang from the vinegar and smokey flavor of the charred sprouts, you’d never know you’re eating something so healthy.


This recipe calls for cooking only 10-15 minutes, but if you’re oven is like mine and takes forever to heat up and retain heat, I’d keep them in 20 minutes or longer. These are delicious on their own, or see below for a great dip!
