Brussel Sprouts with Balsamic Vinegar

Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts are a regular side at our dinner meals. It’s kind of funny to me because I remember despising them as a kid. But we always had them steamed. Oven roasted Brussel sprouts are a game changer. Something magic happens in the oven. As the Brussel sprouts roast, they get sweeter and the the leaves that fall off get crunchy. Then, add in the sweet tanginess of balsamic vinegar, and they start disappearing off my baking sheet before I can get them to the dinner table. My oldest daughter actually requests them regularly, and she’s opposed to most green vegetables.

Roasting Brussel Sprouts

Prep the Brussel Sprouts

The first step for this recipe is the prep the Brussel Sprouts. Trim off the bottom of the stem and remove any blemished leaves. Then, cut the Brussel sprouts in quarters and really small ones in half. If any unblemished leaves come off while your trimming, that’s ok. Keep them and add them to the cut Brussel sprouts on a baking sheet. These individual leaves get really crunchy and delicious while they’re roasting.

After you’ve prepped all of your Brussel sprouts, arrange them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Drizzle the Brussel sprouts with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss the Brussel sprouts around to make sure they are all seasoned and coated in the olive oil. Then, redistribute them evenly on the baking sheet. Roast the Brussel sprouts at 425º for 20-25 minutes until they are tender, starting to brown, and the leaves are getting crispy.

Toss in Balsamic Vinegar after Roasting

The final step is to pour the balsamic vinegar over the roasted Brussel sprouts immediately after they come out of the oven. Toss the sprouts in the vinegar and let them set for 3-5 minuets. As the Brussel sprouts cool, they will absorb the vinegar, and you’ll have sweet and tangy roasted Brussel sprouts. I’ve tried adding the vinegar before roasting, but it doesn’t work. The raw Brussel spouts can’t absorb the vinegar and just ends up getting cooked onto the baking pan.
