Balsamic Roasted Vegetables

Dinner tonight was the always delicious Coconut Red Lentil Soup.  I took new pictures, see?






A little better than the old ones I think...

I also made a side dish of Balsamic Roasted Carrots and Brussels Sprouts.  Simple, delicious, healthy, minimal-ingredients required.

just LOOK at that caramelization!


Brian and I agreed, these almost taste too good for how healthy they are.  We fought over the crispiest ones.  



Balsamic Roasted Carrots and Brussels Sprouts
serves 2

1/2 pound brussels sprouts, stem ends trimmed and sprouts cut in half
3 medium carrots, peeled and sliced into 3/4 inch-thick rounds
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

Toss brussels sprouts and sliced carrots with the balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil directly on the baking sheet, making sure each piece is coated in the oil and vinegar.  Sprinkle with the salt and pepper.

Roast for 25-30 minutes until sprouts and carrots are golden, flipping the pieces and stirring 2 or 3 times during cooking to ensure even browning and so they don't burn.  Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.

That soup looks so delicious and the roasted brussel sprouts are the perfect pairing for this meal!

I should not look at delicious pictures like this when I'm starving at midnight, lol! I really want this...like now! ;)

What a timely post. I bought brussel sprouts last week but my week has been hectic and I haven't had a chance to make them. Now I need to make them ASAP before they go bad. I usually use the Barefoot Contessa's basic roasted brussel sprouts recipe. However, after seeing these photos and realizing I also have a few carrots in the veggie drawer, I'm going to add them to the mix. The colors look great together. Thanks for the inspiration! Cheers!

Julia, I see you got new plates (I think). They are beautiful! The soup looks even tastier & the roasted brussels look like an interesting take. I've been doing nonstop roasted veggies lately - I never get sick of them. It's all brussel sprouts, carrots & parsnips (occasionally a potato or two mixed in) all the time. Yum.

I made the brussel sprouts and carrots tonight and they were delicious!!! Would it be ok if I posted the recipe on my food blog (www.munchomom.com), giving you credit? Thanks in advance!

That's great that you liked them. I'd be honored if you shared the recipe with your readers, thanks for asking first :-) I just checked out your site, those chocolate-banana whoopie pies look fabulous, that's one of my favorite flavor combinations!

I tried to make these, but it didn't quite work out, but they were still delicious, and I intend on trying again soon. You can read about my attempt here: http://btf-photos.blogspot.com/2012/02/20123202.html and see a picture of how it came out (though I forgot about taking a picture until I was almost finished) here: http://btf-photos.blogspot.com/2012/02/2012320.html

Sorry they didn't quite turn out this time, Brian. I hope you do give them another shot with the balsamic vinegar, I think it will make a big difference since it's a bit sweet and really enhances the flavor of the roasted vegetables. Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback!

These are my favorite vegetables right now and it looks like you roasted them perfectly! Love the balsamic vinegar addition-I've never thought of that. Beautiful pictures and thanks for the recipe!

I made the brussel sprouts and carrots last week and they were delicious! I had a hard time leaving any for my husband to eat! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Do you mind if I post it on my food blog, with a reference to your site? Thank you!

Made them again tonight, this time with all the correct ingredients, and they are even better than my attempt last week.

Yummy! I have made these a few times and they turn out really well every time. I suggest mixing them all together with the oil and balsamic in a big bowl to cover them all completely, then salt and pepper on the baking sheet. Also, I forgot to buy whole carrots and ended up using a bag of baby carrots instead of sliced big ones and it was great! Cut a little bit of the work out, too. Thanks for the simple, yet totally satisfying recipe! :)

I found your recipe via Pinterest and made it for Easter dinner to RAVE reviews! Everyone asked for the recipe, including a woman who said she isn't sure the last time she had brussels sprouts (which are a personal family fave), but was going to buy some straight away. I also used baby carrots which were perfect. Thank you!

I made this recipe for Easter to RAVE reviews! Everyone asked for a copy of the recipe - which couldn't be easier. One woman who said she can't remember the last time she had brussels sprouts said she was going to run out and get some right away. I, like Erin, used baby carrots and they were delicious. Thank you!
