Roasted Honey Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

Elevating your vegetable dishes!
Brussels sprouts are a very nutritious vegetable. Not only do they contain vitamin C, vitamin K, and B vitamins, they are also made up of mostly water and help to hydrate your body.
I usually enjoy Brussels sprouts with just a little olive oil, salt, and pepper--but adding these few additional ingredients really elevates the flavor and is a fun change! I love to make my meals as nutrient-dense as possible, and in doing so, I also add tons of flavor.
Yield: 4-6 servings
1 Package (12 oz.) raw Brussels sprouts, washed
1 medium red onion, sliced
2 garlic gloves, minced
2 Tbsp. fresh rosemary, chopped
2 Tbsp. olive oil
3-4 strips turkey bacon, chopped (optional)
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar*
1 Tbsp. honey
1 tsp salt
Freshly cracked black pepper
*Use good quality Balsamic vinegar to enhance flavor!
1. Cut the stems off of the sprouts and cut the sprouts in half. Cut the large sprouts in quarters to cook more evenly.
2. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
3. Place the sprouts, sliced onion, garlic, rosemary, and bacon, if using, into a mixing bowl.
4. Drizzle olive oil over the contents of the bowl and mix until evenly coated.
5. Lightly oil or spray a baking sheet, or line with parchment paper.
6. Spread Brussels mixture onto the prepared baking sheet.
7. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
8. Roast in oven for 15 minutes, or until Brussels mixture is crispy and brown.
9. Meanwhile, add balsamic vinegar to a small skillet and cook over medium heat. Cook until vinegar is reduced slightly, about 5-6 minutes.
10. Pour vinegar over cooked Brussels mixture. Add additional salt and pepper if desired. Mix to coat mixture evenly.
11. Drizzle honey over Brussels. Add more if desired!
