Maple Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Roasting brussels sprouts is seriously too easy! Mix them with a little olive oil, salt and pepper, and pop them in the oven for a bit and you're good to go.  But the other night, I made roasted brussels sprouts with a touch of maple syrup and a little orange blossom honey balsamic vinegar and it totally took them to an entirely different level.

You certainly don't have to use orange blossom honey balsamic vinegar but I happen to love the taste of it and it goes so well with the maple syrup.  Simple balsamic vinegar will do, but if you can find it, do try it.  I found it right next to all the vinegars in the grocery.  It's also wonderful when making salad dressings or marinades.  It's just a lightly sweet and tangy flavor that really does add a lot of flavor to any dish.

Light and healthy, these brussels sprouts come out of the oven with a slight crunch and they're full of flavor.

Give roasting brussels sprouts a try, you'll never think the same way about them!
