Don’t you just hate it when you go shopping for one item and they’re all out? There are certain food items I cannot get from my corner supermarket. So I need to journey at least 10 minutes to the next town for those. Yesterday I did just that for brussels sprouts and they were all out. Determined as I am though, I went back today and luckily there was one package sitting on the shelf. The sprouts didn’t look very appealing but I had already prepped this balsamic reduction just for them so I was left with little choice.Plus, I had a brussels sprout craving. Seriously, who craves brussels sprouts? I never did like brussels sprouts. That’s until I started roasting them. When you roast brussels sprouts they become crunchy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside. Drizzle them with balsamic reduction and boom those cute little sprouts won’t even know what hit them.

This dish quite easy to make as well. Simply mix brussels sprouts with olive oil until they are completely coated.
