Fresh figs and sprouts at a farmer's market

Ingredients

2 c. Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
1 small sweet onion, sliced
8 figs, halved
1 ½ Tbsp. olive oil
Leaves from 6 sprigs of thyme
Salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbsp. aged balsamic vinegar

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Toss the Brussels sprouts, onion, and figs with the olive oil and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with thyme leaves, salt, and pepper.

3. Roast for about 30–35 minutes, turning the Brussels sprouts at least once to evenly roast.

4. Once the Brussels sprouts and onions caramelize and the figs appear slightly shriveled, remove from the oven and coat with the aged balsamic vinegar.

Serves 2-3.
