Brussel Sprouts with Goat Cheese and Balsamic Glaze

Not sure if this is a popular opinion or not but brussel sprouts are one of my favorite vegetables. I like all of my veggies pretty crisp, like basically burnt which probably lessens the nutritional value but it tastes better so I’ll take the tradeoff. This is a super simple recipe that only requires a few ingredients. It’s a great side dish or even appetizer. 

Ingredients

Brussel sprouts (I just bought the bag from Trader Joe’s)

Olive oil (couple tablespoons)

Salt + pepper

Goat cheese crumbles

Balsamic glaze

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 415 degrees
  2. Prep the brussel sprouts. Cut off brown ends and slice in half. 
  3. Toss brussel sprouts in a bowl with olive oil and salt and pepper. 
  4. Place brussel sprouts on a foil lined baking sheet in a single layer. 
  5. Roast brussel sprouts for 35-40 minutes making sure that you toss the brussel sprouts a few times throughout the baking process. 
  6. After brussel sprouts are done baking I like to plate the brussel sprouts and then add the goat cheese and balsamic glaze on top. I think this looks prettier than tossing with the glaze. 

You now have a tasty and healthy side dish! If you have bacon on hand, I would definitely consider adding that too, yum!
