You guys have probably heard me say that when life gets super-hectic, frozen vegetables help make life so much easier. I even wrote about my frozen veggie love for SHAPE.
Writing last week’s post about October obsessions was really fun, so I thought I’d share an official recipe for the brussels sprouts to go with my blabbing.
As part of the Fiscal Femme’s 30-Day Money Cleanse (which started last week!), I’m working on capping my weekly grocery budget at $100 (between personal groceries and project supplies), so I know I’m going to have to tame my habit of buying random stuff I’m curious about—like this delicious find I picked up a few weeks ago. If you’ve been with me even a little while, you know my love of bourbon, so when I saw this Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup at Trader Joe’s, I just had to buy it. This is one impulse buy that was totally worth it. It’s not super-sweet, so it’s a perfect fit for savory recipes.
Bourbon Maple Brussels Sprouts
- 1 lb frozen brussels sprouts
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- Sea salt to taste
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
- Toss frozen brussels sprouts with olive oil, maple syrup, and sea salt.
- Roast about 40 minutes or until crispy. Shake the pan a few times to prevent sticking.
Do you ever struggle with impulse buys at the grocery store? What’s your kryptonite?
