Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

Tangy, sweet and salty, these caramelized and soft little brassicas are delectable! A great seasonal staple recipe, serve this up as a side around the holidays and all winter long. Serves 3-4.


INGREDIENTS:

  • 1lb Brussels Sprouts
  • 2 Tbsp House Blend or Olio Santo EVOO
  • 3 Tbsp Fig Balsamic, divided (or 2 Tbsp Dark Balsamic and 1 Tbsp aged La Resdora Balsamic)
  • 3/4 tsp Kosher salt
  • Maldon Sea Salt Flakes for finishing

Preheat oven to 375F. Slice the bottom off each spout and then slice each in half, top to bottom. Discard bottoms and any yellowed/damaged leaves, and transfer the rest, including loose green leaves to a large bowl. The extra leaves will crisp up into little Brussels chips!

Toss first with 2 Tbsp balsamic and kosher salt, then add the olive oil and toss again to evenly coat. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet and arrange so that all of the Brussels sprouts are cut side down - this will help them trap steam and soften inside, while also caramelizing.

Roast for 35-45 minutes. Remove when soft and starting to crisp. Before serving, drizzle with the remaining 1 Tbsp balsamic and season to taste with Maldon sea salt flakes.

VARIATIONS:

  • "Salt & Vinegar Brussels": sub Apple Cider Vinegar for balsamic for a more zippy and bright dish.
  • Sub White Balsamic Vinegar to keep the dish lighter in color.
  • For a mouth-watering plating, drizzle with a thicker La Resdora aged balsamic or balsamic reduction.
