Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Garlic

By • October 26, 2009 • 1 Comments



Author Notes: This is my favorite way of preparing Brussels sprouts. The roasted garlic cloves are a nice complement. The balsamic vinegar adds a nice tang. I made the recipe up a couple of years ago when I started working on a cookbook with two friends. Billie

Serves 8

  • 11/2 pounds Brussels sprouts (preferably small in size)
  • 20 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Trim the Brussels sprouts and cut an "x" into the base of each one with a sharp knife.
  3. Place Brussels sprouts and garlic in a large roasting pan. Add olive oil, salt, and pepper and toss to mix. Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes (checking after 30 to make sure they are not too brown).
  4. Uncover, add balsamic vinegar and stir to coat. Continue baking for another ten minutes.

Made this last night---delicious! Step-by-step instructions and cooking times were perfect, too. If your garlic cloves are big, I'd recommend cutting them into halves or quarters; some of ours didn't cook all the way through.
