Brussels sprouts take on another layer of flavor when they are roasted. Chef Tamara Westerhold of Cherubina Catering further enhances that caramelized flavor with honey and balsamic vinegar. The sweet-sour combo gets a contrasting kick of heat from a sprinkling of chili flakes.


1 lb. Brussels sprouts, cut in half

2 tbsp. olive oil, divided

1 tsp. kosher salt

1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

1 ½ tbsp. honey

¼ tsp. red chili flakes or to taste


1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. 

2. In a large bowl, combine Brussels sprouts with 1 tablespoon olive oil and salt.  Place Brussels sprouts on baking sheet and roast for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally until evenly browned.

3. Return Brussels sprouts to bowl; add remaining tablespoon olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, and red chili flakes. Toss to coat evenly.
