Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Dijon Vinaigrette

Roasting is hands down my favorite way to prepare vegetables. I usually head straight for the asparagus. It's like my safety net, I always nail it. But I'm on a mission to branch out and try new things lately, so that's how brussels sprouts found their way into my oven!

Brussels Sprouts 

Roasted brussels on their own are flavorful in a mellow, creamy kind of way, but this recipe is special because they're dressed in a tangy dijon mustard vinaigrette after they're roasted.  I served these sprouts with quiche but they'd make a perfect pair with pretty much anything, or even on their own as a snack or light lunch.

5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp agave nectar
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 lb Brussels sprouts

1. Preheat oven to 400 F.

2. Whisk 3 tbsp. olive oil, dijon, balsamic, agave, and Worcestershire together in a small bowl until emulsified.

3. With a sharp knife, slice the stem end off the sprouts and then slice each one in half lengthwise. 

4. Arrange the sprouts on a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet. Drizzle with remaining olive oil and toss with tongs to coat. Roast for 25-30 minutes, tossing occasionally, until browned and crispy.

5. Toss with vinaigrette, serve, and enjoy!
