Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Serve 4

1 lb Brussels sprouts
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Preheat the oven to 350F. Prep the Brussels sprouts – remove any damaged leaves and cut each Brussels sprout in half lengthwise.
In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients except for balsamic vinegar together making sure it is fully coated before roasting in the oven. Spread the Brussel sprouts on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 20-30 minutes or until it is golden brown.
