How to make Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic

This recipe starts with fresh brussels sprouts. The greener the better! It’s a lovely shade of green and it definitely checks off one of those important servings. Here’s what else you need:

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Honey
  • Pecans

Start by taking off the outer layer of the brussels sprouts and trim them up. Cut lengthwise and put in a mixing bowl. Cover with half the olive oil and season with salt & pepper.

Season with more salt if needed, then add the pecans and serve.
