Spring is here! That means vegetables, fruits, and flowers abound! This season always gets me in the mood to cook and plant, what about you? Last night I tried a few new recipes that my sister sent over and they were all absolutely delicious :) Especially the roasted brussels sprouts. The recipe came from here, but I made a few tweaks of my own...
Roasted Brussels Sprouts
1 lb brussels sprouts
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
a couple of pinches of black pepper
Set Oven to Broil.
Trim the bottoms from the sprouts and cut them in half. Whisk together ingredients above in a small bowl well then pour over the sprouts. Using a wooden spoon toss the sprouts in the oil mixture. While you are doing this, have a skillet sitting on the stove over high heat until water evaporates on contact. Pour the brussels sprouts into the Pan and quickly turn each sprout face down on the pan until they begin to blacken (about 3 minutes). Transfer pan into the top rack of your oven and roast for about 5-7 minutes until they are charred and a bit crispy. Serve immediately.
You may want to turn your kitchen fan on while cooking these in case of smoke! Enjoy and happy spring!
