Balsamic Roasted Brussel Sprouts (Copycat Whole Foods)

I've been trying to eat 'cleaner' than usual...so when I saw this easy recipe at my friend Arman's The Big Man's World I had to try them.  I keep balsamic vinegar on hand and don't use it much, so I was up for the 'challenge'. 

These were tasty and I ate the whole batch myself! I hate to admit it...
but...I've never been to a Whole Foods Market...I don't know that I've ever seen one either...but I do hear and read much about them. 

I'm sure these are an item available in their prepared foods section. 

And they are YUMMY-LISCIOUS! 

I always like experimenting with options.  We really enjoyed these Ritzy Brussel Sprouts..baked in a cream sauce, topped with cheese, cracker crumbs and nuts.  This recipe for Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Caramelized Onions are a real hit anytime they're served! 

If you've never tried roasting veggies, you should know it brings out the SWEETNESS in them!!  Try it, you'll like it....


2# washed & trimmed brussel sprouts
1/4 c. olive oil
2 Tb. balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. black pepper
(I used fresh ground garlic pepper - MMM)

(After the first 20 minutes of roasting, I drizzled a little bit of a balsamic glaze I've had forever over them...I think it made them a bit darker...and surely very tasty!)

Preheat oven to 350. Cover cookie sheet/tray with non stick foil. 

In lg. bowl, mix olive oil and balsamic vinegar, then add brussel sprouts, stirring until well coated. 

Place brussel sprouts onto foil; sprinkle with salt & pepper. Roast for 20 minutes, stir until loosened and bake another 20 minutes, or until nice and brown, and tender...thus, caramelized.  

Remove from oven and serve after cooling a few minutes.
