Fancy Roasted Brussel Sprouts (in under 15 minutes)

Are you looking for a fancy dish to serve to company or just want a quick and easy side dish for dinner?  This is the one!  This would also be a great addition to the Thanksgiving menu.  I like to add dried cranberries and balsamic syrup right before serving, but they are just as delicious with salt and pepper and so good for you!

Prep time:  5 minutes          Cooking time:  10 minutes          Serves 2 – 4

Ingredients:

1 lb brussel sprouts ends trimmed and outer leaves removed. (cut the larger ones in half for more even roasting)

salt and pepper to taste

2 tbsp avocado oil (or another high temp cooking oil)

A drizzle of store bought balsamic syrup (found in the vinegar section)

2 tbsp dried cranberries

Place halved brussel sprouts on a parchment lined baking sheet (for easy clean-up).  Add the oil and salt and pepper and toss lightly with your fingers to coat.  Place them in a 400 degree over for 10 minutes or until the edges of the spout are charred and crispy.  When they are cooked place them in a shallow bowl of plate and drizzle with balsamic glaze and sprinkle with the dried cranberries for a beautiful presentation with very little effort.
