Ginger Balsamic Brussels Sprouts
Happy Foodie Friday! Crispy, tangy, and sweet, these brussels sprouts are sure to be a crowd pleaser. The combination of balsamic with ginger gives this dish a punchy and aromatic bite. Using an air fryer will crisp up your brussels sprouts beautifully, if you do not have one though, no fret! This recipe works just as well in an oven, especially if you move the brussels sprouts to the top rack to broil for a minute at the very end.
A member of the cabbage family, brussels sprouts are rich in Antioxidants, Vitamin K, and Vitamin C. These little vegetables are not only incredibly healthy but they are also delicious.
