Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Toasted Almonds

Roasting Brussels sprouts accentuates their flavor, and the addition of toasted almonds lends a savory crunch to this easy-to-make side dish.

Ingredients

  • 20 ounces Brussels sprouts, trimmed of tough outer leaves and halved lengthwise   
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil   
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar   
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt   
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper   
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

In a large bowl, toss the Brussels sprouts, oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper together. Spread on a nonstick baking sheet. Roast, stirring once, until nice and brown, about 20-22 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small skillet, cook the almonds over medium heat, stirring constantly, until golden brown and fragrant, about 3-4 minutes. Mix the toasted almonds with the cooked Brussels sprouts and serve hot.

 

Brussels Sprouts Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.
