I think if I had to pick one vegetable to eat for the rest of my life it would be brussels sprouts. I know they are a divisive vegetable – people seem to either love them or hate them. I maintain that the people who hate them have never eaten them prepared correctly. The thought of boiled, naked brussels sprouts makes me shudder too. But when they are roasted and dressed up with olive oil, lemon juice, parmesan and flecks of course sea salt – they are practically like candy. I hope you enjoy these Parmesan Roasted Brussels Sprouts.
Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Cherry Tomatoes is one of my client’s family recipes. I added the balsamic vinegar because I think it compliments the tomatoes and I love how it helps to caramelize the sprouts. I do this recipe often when my mother’s garden is overflowing with cherry tomatoes in the late summer. I’ve done it with broccoli too, which is delicious and requires less cooking time.
