Roasted Brussel Sprouts

The veggie with the worst reputation: the Brussel Sprout. They have about 275% of the Vitamin K you need daily, over 150% of the Vitamin C you need daily, and are also a fab source of Vitamins A, B1, B6, and B2. You’ll also get plenty of folate, fiber, and potassium. Now, let’s make them taste awesome!

if you can find the sprouts still on the tree, they’ll be the most tender and sweet. If you can only find them plucked, they are still awesome. Wash them well and cut gently from the tree stem. Cut close enough to the stem to keep the sprout in tact. For plucked sprouts, trim the bottoms as part of cleaning to remove tough, dried stump. 1 tree stem of sprouts is about 1 lb of sprouts. The bags are usually sold by the pound.

On a roasting pan combine:

1 lb washed sprouts

1/4 Cup olive oil

1/4 Cup balsamic vinegar

2 tsp salt

2 tsp pepper

Roast at 375 degrees F for 30 minutes. Stir on tray half way through cooking. Serve immediately.
