I like Brussels sprouts but not everyone does including my DH.  Recently we sample some cooked Brussels sprouts at Costco at one of their food demo tables.  They were quite good, so good that I bought  a package.  I looked at a variety of recipes and the following recipe does add some flavour to the sprouts.

All you need are sprouts, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, pine nuts or other nuts and parmesan cheese.  The sprouts are roasted in the oven with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar at 375 degrees F for 25 minutes and then the roasted pine nuts and cheese are added to the serving bowl.   Voila, it is ready.  I have also made this recipe with just oil and balsamic vinegar and not add cheese or nuts.  It was just as delicious.

Wash about 10 Brussels sprouts and cut each one in half.  Place in a bowl. Add 1 tbsp of oil and 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar to the bowl and toss.

Spread out on a foil covered pan and bake at 375 degrees F for about 25 minutes. During the cooking process turn the sprouts over in the pan.

Roast 1 tbsp pine nuts.

Measure out 1 tbsp parmesan cheese.

Place the Brussels sprouts in a serving bowl and add the nuts and cheese.  Toss to combine.  Because the vinegar gets caramelized during the baking, the sprouts will appear dark.
