Balsamic Brussel Sprouts

Brussel sprouts are probably the least loved vegetable, but I think that's just because most people hven't had them prepared properly. I hated brussel sprouts when I was younger, and it wasn't until a few years ago I had them roasted and fell in love with them.

This is a super easy side dish recipe, and I think it's the perfect recipe to try brussel sprouts. And if you like this preparation, try out my previously posted "Not-your-Mama's Brussel Sprouts, which are roasted with garlic.

Balsamic Glazed Brussel Sprouts

Balsamic Brussel Sprouts
16 oz brussel sprouts
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
6 cloves garlic
4 tbsp olive oil
salt/pepper to taste
1 shallot, chopped
4 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary

Preheat oven to 425. Combine brussel sprouts, onion, garlic, and 3 tbsp olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and spread out on a greased cookie sheet. Roaste 25-30 minutes until tender. Meanwhile, saute shallot in remaining olive oil over medium-high heat, until tender. Add balsamic vinegar and cook another 3 minutes. Stir in rosemary and pour over brussel sprouts.

Sounds delicious. And so simple.
Yeah, it wasn't till recently that I discovered the "proper" way to prepare brussel sprouts and now I can't wait to eat them. My version includes adding pancetta bacon and orange zest and juice to the sprouts.

Catherine said...

yum! I was so boring with Brussels - I love the balsamic vinegar idea.

I like brussels sprouts in a maple syrup vinaigrette.

I love Brussel sprouts, and this one's a winner! I like to take any leftover sprouts, cut them in half and add them to salads. This would work perfectly!

laura jesser said...

Hmmm, this recipe could very well turn me into a believer in Brussels sprouts! I love balsamic anything--thanks for posting.

jackie said...

i am definitely going to try this out on my brussel-sprout-hating boyfriend. AND the other brussel sprout recipe as well--we have been making your roasted cauliflower recipe at least once a week since i found it, and i can't see how this won't be just as good! by the way, that cauliflower is great with a little tiny bit of parmesan sprinkled on it, too! :)

You always have the best recipes! I would love it if you would participate in "The 6 Weird Things About You posting". Details on my blog, thanks!

This looks great! Thanks for the recipe. :) Found your blog through flickr.

Kristen said...

I love brussel sprouts. I don't make them nearly enough because my kids aren't fans, but I'm not giving up! Hopefully they'll like them someday.

laurent said...

Mix of balsamix vinegar and brussels sprout must be really very interesting. i d be curious to try it on a very thin pie with some parmegiano.

MDL said...

Did you use fresh or frozen sprouts? If you used fresh, I wonder how it could be adapted for frozen ones...

mary said...

Thanks for the recipe......I made these for a V-Day dinner last night with Chicken Piccata and roasted potatoes. Might sound like a strange combination of tastes but we were both happy! Some might say I burned the sprouts a touch as they were very dark from the heat, but the flavour was great and the onions were crunchy and caramelized in places. Good stuff.

megan said...

stumbled across this recipe randomly, i think from tastespotting. made it last night along with some beet mashed potatoes and spelt with garlic/parsley/dried cherries/scallions/shallots. for my very first time ever making brussel sprouts, it was a lovely accompaniment to my other dishes. thanks! i'll definitely make this again.

Katya said...

It's delicious! Thank you!

bröst said...

I will definitely give brussel sprouts a new chance with this receipt. Almost everything taste good if you just know how to prepare it. Thanks.
