Ingredients

  • 2 lb
    brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 2 Tbsp
    olive oil, extra virgin
  • 1 c
    balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 c
    dried cherries
  • 1/4 c
    spanish almonds (or sliced almonds)
  • ·
    salt

How to Make ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH BALSAMIC REDUCTION

Step-by-Step

  1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment or aluminum foil. In a bowl, toss the Brussels sprouts with the oil. Spread them out on the prepared baking sheet and season with a couple pinches of salt.
  2. Place in a preheated 400º oven and roast until the Brussels sprouts are soft and starting to turn brown, 30-35 minutes. Flip and rotate the Brussels sprouts halfway through the cooking time.
  3. Meanwhile, bring the balsamic vinegar to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Reduce to a hard simmer and allow the balsamic to reduce to 1/3 of a cup. Be careful not to burn the vinegar. Only one or two tablespoons will be needed for this recipe. Store the extras in a glass container in the fridge.
  4. Once the Brussels sprouts are finished, place them into a serving bowl. Add the dried cherries and Spanish almonds, drizzle with 1-2 tablespoons of balsamic reduction (or more if desired), stir to incorporate all the ingredients, and check for seasoning.
