How to season Brussels Sprouts

How to make Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
Place the Brussels Sprouts on a sheet pan and then mix with the seasonings and avocado oil.
Roast the Brussels Sprouts until they’re slightly browned and tender, about 25 to 30 minutes, flipping once in between.
You can also make these as air fryer Brussels Sprouts and they’ll even cook quicker too.
Toss the roasted Brussel sprouts with balsamic they’re done and enjoy!
Can I use frozen Brussels Sprouts?
Absolutely! That being said, the frozen Brussels Sprouts may not get as crispy as they are waterlogged from freezing. You can still make delicious roasted vegetables using frozen veggies, but they may be a little mushier. We highly recommend steaming your own and then freezing, like we do with our steamed broccoli.
Can I use a balsamic glaze for Brussels Sprouts?
If you want a thicker balsamic vinegar you can make a balsamic glaze which is just balsamic vinegar reduce on the stove at medium high heat.
If you don’t like balsamic vinegar we also love tossing in some hot sauce. Some mix honey with the balsamic vinegar to add sweetness as well. Don’t be afraid to have fun with fruit too – it would go really well with this asparagus and strawberry side dish which also uses balsamic vinegar.
We love making a double batch to make brussels sprouts pizza, just your favorite pizza dough or even try this dairy-free pizza. Add favorite cheese, top with the Brussels sprouts, a little garlic and you have a delicious pizza!
