4 Ingredient Recipe!
BRUSSELS: Choose brussels that have a bright green color. Make sure that there is no yellowing of the leaves or black spots, and that the leaves are tightly packed. The smaller ones tend to be on the sweeter side, whereas the larger ones are a little more bitter. Wash the brussels under cold water without scrubbing. Trim off any of the stems.
VINEGAR: Balsamic vinegar is not like your regular white vinegar. It has a more complex flavor that is sweeter, thicker, and darker. Because of its complexity, it is better for glazes like the one in this recipe. Balsamic comes in so many varieties especially on the shelves of specialty markets, however, a generic brand will work for these brussels.
VARIATIONS: This recipe would also work great with carrots. Other ideas include tossing the brussels with some parmesan and lemon.
Fresh Or Frozen?
Fresh or frozen Brussels can be used for this recipe. For frozen Brussels, don’t defrost before cooking or they will be mushy. Since they are frozen they will be difficult to cut. So, roast them for 10 minutes, then remove them from the oven, cut in half, and resume for the rest of the cooking time or until tender. Frozen Brussels make take a little longer to cook than fresh.
