Crispy roasted Brussels sprouts don’t need much embellishment—they’re good with just olive oil, salt, and pepper—but a splash of balsamic vinegar and drizzle of honey take them up a notch. The vinegar adds a welcome zing while the honey balances the Brussels sprouts’ bitterness. When selecting Brussels sprouts, look for firm, bright green heads with tightly packed leaves. If you have your pick between large or small Brussels sprouts, go with the larger ones. While smaller sprouts are a bit sweeter and more tender, they cook too quickly and therefore won’t brown as nicely.

Roasting is an easy and delicious way to prepare many vegetables. For more ideas, try my roasted broccoli, roasted cauliflower, roasted carrots, and roasted green beans.
