You love 'em or hate them... Opinions on Brussels sprouts are divided. But have you ever tried roasting them in the oven? Oven roasted Brussels sprouts acquire a different flavour. Richer and, through the caramelisation, sweeter, these sprouts develop a lovely texture with a crisp bite. These balsamic Brussel sprouts, together with cranberries and pecan nuts, make a delicious side dish or when cooled a tasty salad!
