Honey Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

0 from 0 ratings

Think back to your childhood for a second. What was the one vegetable that you always dreaded eating? For most people, Brussels sprouts are the first things that come to mind. For me personally, I had never even tried them until this past year – which was good, because I had no preconceived notions of how they would be (other than the old rumor that they were a miserable vegetable that must be avoided).

How wrong all you children were! The problem with Brussels sprouts is that most people just aren’t making them right. I will admit, they’re not the most exciting vegetable on their own. But throw in some spices, honey, and balsamic vinegar and I’ll bet you’ll have all the kids eating them.

I know this to be true because once I had finished baking them, a very skeptical sister of mine took one bite, said “these are actually pretty awesome”, and proceeded to eat more than ¾ of the bowl. Take that, boring childhood greens!

Brussels sprouts are packed full of tons of great nutrients. One serving provides more than 100% of your daily value of vitamins K and C, and they are also chock full of antioxidants, fiber, and protein.
