(35 minutes, serves 2-4)
I love roasting brussels sprouts on a weeknight — five minutes of prep and the rest happens in the oven (or toaster oven, in my case), giving you plenty of time to cook a few more dishes.
These brussels sprouts are sweet, tangy, and a little spicy. A nice addition to the Thanksgiving table, or for dinner any night of the week.
1/2 t. cayenne
1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
2. Trim and halve brussels sprouts, cutting large sprouts smaller, aiming to have them roughly the same size so they’ll cook evenly.
3. In a bowl, mix together jaggery, garlic, balsamic, oil, salt, and cayenne. Add sprouts and stir to coat them well.
4. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper; spread brussels sprouts in a single layer.
