What the fork?!

I no longer hate Brussels sprouts!  For years, I couldn’t stand them even though I kept trying them hoping they would taste good.  I tried them prepared by chefs I trust, and still no luck. I had an inkling that things would someday change when I tried one a few years ago at Millennium and it actually tasted okay.`

For the first time, I bought some Brussels sprouts that were still on the stalk and cooked them up the next day. I actually wanted seconds they were so yummy.

Roasted Balsamic Brussels Sprouts with Tofu

  • 1 lb. fresh Brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered (smaller ones can be cut in half)
  • 1 lb. extra firm tofu, cut into 1″ cubes
  • 2-3  T. olive oil
  • 1-2 T. good quality balsamic vinegar
  • sea salt
  • 3 T. almonds, chopped and lightly toasted

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

Toss the sprouts and tofu with the vinegar, olive oil, and salt and spread into one layer on a large baking sheet.  Roast for 20 minute or until cooked, stirring about halfway.  Add extra salt if desired and serve topped with toasted almonds.
