Recipe Ingredients for PERFECT BRUSSELS SPROUTS

1 lb brussels sprouts
2 tbsp Blue Agave
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/4 tsp salt

Recipe Directions for PERFECT BRUSSELS SPROUTS

  1. Preheat the oven to 425F.

  2. Pick all the gross, brownish leaves off of the sprouts.

  3. Put the sprouts in a colander and run cold water over them.

  4. Cut the bottom stems off of the sprouts and then cut them in half. Be sure to keep the leaves that fall off the sprouts ? they get all crispy and delicious when cooked.

  5. Put the sprouts, agave nectar, and salt in a large bowl and stir.

  6. Lay the sprouts out on a baking sheet. Make sure they don?t overlap too much.

  7. Cook the sprouts until they are tender. The cooking time depends on how you like your sprouts. I like them to be tender but still bright green (about 20 minuts in the oven). Some people like them to be super soft and green-brown in color (about 40 minutes). Try them both ways to see what you like!
