BALSAMIC GLAZED BRUSSELS SPROUTS THREE WAYS

I've always known that I wasn't your average type of girl, even as a kid I loved brussels sprouts. They reminded me of baby cabbage and cabbage was another one of my favorite vegetables. Yep, a weird kid indeed.
But now that I've seasoned in age, the sprouts have to up the ante in flavor too.

In a prior post I gave you my basic balsamic glazed brussels sprouts recipe, (revisit here) and seeing that it's Monday, I'd love to give you meatless Monday heads 2 more easy and sexy recipes to sink your chops into.

And yes, that's Snoop and Biggie on my shirt. I was blasting a few ol' skool hip tunes while cooking today. Ya'll know how I gets down in the kitch!

Anywhoo.

Get the recipes below.

Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts can be eaten alone in a bowl or if you're feeling fancy, sprinkle with dried cranberries and cashews. Yum!
