Brussel Sprouts???? Really????

Growing up I absolutely HATED Brussel sprouts.  I was forced to eat them every time they were served for dinner.  It is one of the few things that my mom cooked that I absolutely hated but she just used frozen Brussel sprouts and boiled them.  YUCK!  Once I was grown and able to fix food myself they were something that I swore I would never eat again.  Well, with going vegetarian I am looking for new things to fix because just eating salad and the same old broccoli and cauliflower all the time gets boring.  I started looking for different recipes and kept coming across ones for Brussel sprouts.  I actually made a slaw out of them from a recipe I found but that is not what I am going to post today.  I tried this recipe the other night and we all loved it, I found the basic recipe online but of course I have to tweak things to make it my own!

Balsamic Roasted Brussel Sprouts
1 lbs Brussel Sprouts, trimmed and quartered
3 Tbsp Olive Oil
3 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
1 tsp Kosher Salt
1 tsp Black Pepper
1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2.  In a large bowl, put the Olive Oil, Balsamic Vinegar and Dijon Mustard and whisk until you form an emulsion.
3.  Trim and quarter the Brussel sprouts and add them to the bowl.
4.  Toss the sprouts to fully coat.
5.  Place sprouts on a baking sheet and sprinkle with the kosher salt and pepper.
6.  Roast in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes until they are golden brown and delicious.

  1. I found this recipe on Pintrest and tried it. Loved it! I always hated brussell sprouts, too, and this recipe changed my mind about them.
