We are headed to Disney World in a just a couple days. Eek! So I have been trying to clean out my fridge. That is how this Quinoa & Brussel Sprouts with Balsamic Glaze came about. It’s so delicious! I love when you can make a good meal out of the extras in your fridge. I think you could probably add many other vegetables to this as well. I think carrots, sweet potato or squash would be great additions as well. I always keep some kind of cooked grain on hand in the fridge so I can add it to meals throughout the week. This Quinoa & Brussel Sprouts with Balsamic Glaze is gluten free and vegan. If you have been wanting to try quinoa, I highly recommend this. Another favorite quinoa dish of mine is my Quinoa, Tomato and Avocado Salad. I also use quinoa in breakfast recipes like my Slow Cooker Breakfast Quinoa.
Roasting the Brussel sprouts, onions and garlic in the balsamic glaze helps them develop a sweetness that is so yummy! I added almonds for a nice crunch and an added protein boost. I wanted to add hazelnuts, but I was out of them. Honestly, I think just about any nut will do in this recipe.
