Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

Cook’s Notes:┬áNext time try marinating the Brussels sprouts in salt + balsamic vinegar before steaming. Then taste before sprinkling with (sea?) salt in preparation for roasting.


1 lb Brussels sprouts, washed, trimmed, and cut in half
approximately 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar + more for basting
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and cracked pepper, to taste

OTHER ITEM(S) NEEDED: Ziploc Zip ‘n Steam bags, Roasting pan or baking sheet, Cooking Spray


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Add the Brussels sprouts, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil to a steam bag. Cook according to steam bag instructions until tender. I find most vegetables require a little more time than the instructions indicate, but then I’m southern. ­čśë

Prepare the roasting pan or baking sheet with cooking spray. Empty the steam bag contents onto the pan or sheet then arrange the Brussels sprouts in a single layer, cut side down. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.

Roast the Brussels sprouts for 10 minutes. Flip the Brussels sprouts over so that the cut sides face up. Baste with more balsamic vinegar and roast for another 10 minutes.

Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
