    Ingredients

    • Brussel sprouts: Super high in fiber antioxidants and vitamin C and minerals, Brussel sprouts are a great addition to any diet. Trim Brussel sprouts and make sure you remove the outer leaves.
    • Oil: I use extra virgin olive oil for this recipe, but regular olive oil will work well too.
    • Kosher salt and pepper: For seasoning.
    • Balsamic vinegar: To add a tangy flavor to the sprouts. This balsamic glaze works so well with other roasted veggies too.
    • Honey: The sweetness of the honey balances out the acidity of the vinegar making these sprouts incredibly addictive!
    • Optional Add-ins: You can add crumbled feta cheese, toasted pecans, or craisins. Absolutely optional, but they all add a wonderful texture to this vegetable side dish.

    Can you make them ahead of time?

    These roasted Brussel sprouts with balsamic glaze are best served as soon as they are made, but you can prep the dish ahead of time. You can peel and cut the sprouts the night before and keep them covered in the fridge until you are ready to cook them. You can also make the balsamic honey vinaigrette ahead of time and store it covered in the refrigerator overnight.

    Leftovers can be kept in the fridge for 2 to 3 days and reheated in the oven at 350F for 5 to 10 minutes.

    TIPS FROM NELI’S KITCHEN

    Recipe Notes and Tips

    • Make sure you have good quality balsamic vinegar. It adds a lot of flavor and you want one that tastes really great.
    • Add the honey balsamic vinaigrette after roasting the Brussel sprouts, otherwise, the sprouts will be soggy and won’t crisp up in the oven.
    • For extra-crispy sprouts, run them through a salad spinner or dry them off really good with paper towels before roasting.
    • Don’t overcrowd your baking sheet, the sprouts should be in a single layer. If they are overcrowded, they will steam rather than roast and you won’t get those crispy edges.
    • Place the sprouts cut side down to get nice crispy edges.
    • Roast at a high temperature to get the desired crispy outer leaves.
    • Stir the sprouts halfway through cooking so that they cook evenly all the way around.
