Author Notes: Without knowing exactly how this veggie would adapt to different ingredients, I decided to try a basic recipe. I turned to one of my favorite sources, Ina Garten, to adapt something she had made. I used her recipe and added a few tweaks to boost up the flavor profile. A splash of balsamic vinegar along with a few roasted peppers transform this dish into my new favorite side. —La Phemme Phoodie
pounds Brussels sprouts
tablespoons olive oil
teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
tablespoons balsamic vinegar
roasted red and yellow peppers, chopped
- Cut off the brown ends of the Brussels sprouts and pull off any yellow outer leaves.
- Mix them in a bowl with the olive oil, salt and pepper.
- Pour them on a sheet pan and roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside.
- Shake the pan from time to time to brown the sprouts evenly.
- Sprinkle with more kosher salt if desired.
- Toss with chopped peppers and 1-2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar and serve immediately.
