Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe

Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

A sweet balsamic vinegar and apple juice glaze makes Brussels sprouts a kid-pleasing vegetable.

Ingredients

1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
1 tablespoon olive oil
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
¼ cup coarsely chopped pecans
½ cup balsamic vinegar
½ cup 100-percent apple juice
¼ cup dried cranberries

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Combine Brussels sprouts, olive oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl; toss. Spread Brussels sprouts in a single layer on a large rimmed baking sheet and roast for 10 minutes.
  3. Add pecans to the baking sheet and stir. Roast 5 to 7 more minutes, or until Brussels sprouts are tender and slightly browned and pecans are golden.
  4. Meanwhile, combine balsamic vinegar and apple juice in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Then, reduce heat to medium, and simmer 15 minutes or until thickened and reduced to about ¼ cup. Remove from heat. 
  5. Transfer Brussels sprout mixture to a large bowl; add cranberries. Drizzle with balsamic glaze, and toss until well blended. Serve immediately.
