Roasted Brussels Sprouts


As a kid, I  could not stand the sight of Brussels sprouts. Don’t ask me what happened but somehow they’ve become my favorite side dish!  They’re high in  vitamin C and have fair amounts of vitamin A and  B-6. They also contain iron, calcium and magnesium. Here’s a simple and delicious recipe I hope you enjoy.

1 lb small Brussels sprouts cut in half

2 tbsp olive oil

1/4 cup of diced pancetta

1/2 tsp sea salt 

1/4 tsp pepper 

2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

Heat the oven to 400 .  Place the Brussels sprouts in a bowl, add olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss to cover evenly and place in a baking sheet on a lower rack of the oven. Roast for 10-15 minutes and toss. Roast for another 10-15 minutes until done.  As soon as you take them out of the oven, pour in the balsamic vinegar , mix well and serve.
