Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Looking for a new way to get your kids to eat their vegetables? Look no further than these roasted Brussels sprouts with a twist! These tiny green veggies are often despised by kids and adults alike, but roasting them in the oven transforms them into a delicious treat that even the pickiest eaters will love.  The secret to making these Brussels sprouts irresistible is all in the balsamic glaze. As the sprouts roast, the balsamic vinegar caramelizes, giving them a sweet and slightly tangy flavor that will have your kids coming back for more.

This recipe is DELICIOUS on its own.. But after making this 1001 times, I decided to switch it up a bit.. So I came up with Cranberry Pistachio Pine Nut Pesto  to put on these roasted brussel sprouts, making them perfect for the Holidays or any special occasion.  You start with the original “balsamic roasted brussels sprouts” recipe, when the brussels sprouts are done, spoon 1/2 cup of the Cranberry Pistachio Pine Nut Pesto on top and stir well.

Just a note: Cranberry Pistachio Pine Nut Pesto would be incredible as a crostini appetizer, stuffed inside a chicken breast or wrapped into puff pastry with brie.. 

If you’re feeling adventurous, try experimenting with different flavors to mix up your roasted Brussels sprouts. For a bright and fresh twist, try adding some lemon zest and fresh thyme to the mix before roasting. The lemon adds a zesty kick, while the thyme brings a savory and earthy flavor that pairs perfectly together.
