Balsamic and Honey Roasted Brussel Sprouts

I have made Caramelized Brussel Sprouts before but thought it was time to try out roasting.

Loved it.

So easy to prepare.

Try it :)


  • 1 lb brussel sprouts
  • 1/2 of a small onion, diced small
  • 2 tablespoons lemon olive oil  **if you don't have just use regular olive oil and the juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 cup of pine nuts
  • Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Rinse the brussel sprouts and remove any damaged outer leaves

Trim the bottom of the sprouts off and slice into 1/2 inch pieces.

Dice your onion very small.

Put sliced brussel sprouts and onion in a large plastic bag. Add 2 tablespoons of lemon olive oil, 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar, 1/2 tablespoon of honey, and salt and pepper to taste.
     **My honey came from my friend Dayna's wedding. Her family has backyard beehive and these cute jars of honey were given to us when we sat down for dinner. Now that I've had this I will never be able to buy the plastic honey bear kind again...

Shake to coat all of the brussel sprouts and pour out onto a cookie sheet covered with tin foil and lightly sprayed with canola oil spray.

Top with pine nuts and roast in the oven for 20 minutes  Toss once halfway through the roasting process to ensure even cooking.
