Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

Hey everyone,

Today I am sharing an easy recipe for Brussels Sprouts.

I don’t know about you, but when we were growing up, almost all kids hated brussels sprouts.

We could never understand how the adults around us liked them, but with this recipe, I can almost guarantee your kids are going to love the sweet flavour from the balsamic vinegar combined with the salty taste of the rock salt.

The “old-fashioned way” of cooking them seemed to be to leave them boiling in water for what seemed like an eternity, and they would get super soft and khaki-coloured; not very appetizing to say the least.

When it comes to baking them though, I find it gives them a crunchier texture and they don’t seem too soft or soggy at all.

A vast improvement!



  • Frozen (or Fresh) Brussels Sprouts – I prefer the baby/mini variety.
  • Olive Oil
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Sea Salt or Rock Salt


  1. Use a baking tray for the brussels sprouts and pour a small amount of olive oil and balsamic vinegar over them.
  2. Add a sprinkling of rock salt or sea salt.
  3. Place tray in the oven (time will vary depending on whether they are frozen or fresh, but check on them frequently and test them with a fork to see when they are done).
  4. Enjoy as a side dish with dinner!

This is such a simple recipe, but so delicious: We can eat them by the truckload at our house!

Try it to see what you think.

See you again next time,
