Roasting vegetables brings out their natural sweetness. Try this method with other thick-cut vegetables such as onion wedges, pepper chunks and carrot sticks.

Ingredients

uncooked Brussels sprouts

20 oz, trimmed of outer tough leaves and cut in half lengthwise

olive oil

2 Tbsp, extra-virgin

balsamic vinegar

1 Tbsp

sea salt

¼ tsp

black pepper

¼ tsp

sliced almonds

2 Tbsp

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF.
  2. In a large bowl, combine Brussels sprouts, oil, vinegar, salt and pepper; toss to mix and coat and then spread on a nonstick baking sheet. Roast, stirring once, until nice and brown, about 20 to 22 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, cook almonds over medium heat, stirring constantly, until golden brown and fragrant, about 3 to 4 minutes. Mix toasted almonds with cooked Brussels sprouts and serve hot. Yields about 2/3 cup per serving.
