Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Shallots and Mushrooms is a mouthful to say and an unbelievable combination to eat. Combining roasted Brussels Sprouts and Shallots with Mushrooms that have been caramelized and reduced in wine makes this an amazing dish.
Brussels Sprouts is one of those ingredients that you either like or despise. John doesn’t like them and I have to say that he’s even given them a fair chance. So, when he was out of town for the weekend, I took advantage of the opportunity to enjoy a new spin on these little veggies, Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Shallots and Mushrooms.
You guys, this dish is so amazing. When you roast brussels sprouts they take on a nice natural sweetness. When you roast them with shallots, you get an added sweetness plus the mellowed flavor of the shallots. The caramelized mushrooms are delicious as is, but I went ahead and added a quick wine reduction and then combined everything together. There is so much flavor depth to this dish, and to me, it is just beautiful. Yes, I talk to my food and compliment it when it’s deserved. In all fairness, I’ve made dishes that don’t get praise. They don’t make the blog, and I will not share the words that I use when that happens.

- 1 lb brussels sprouts
- 4 -6 shallots
- 8 oz cremini mushrooms
- 1 teaspoon fresh garlic minced
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup red wine
- Salt and pepper
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F, and lightly drizzle olive oil on a rimmed baking sheet.
Wash and dry brussels sprouts. Remove loose leaves and trim the stem. Remove the dry skins from the shallots and slice in half. Wipe the mushrooms clean and cut into quarters.
n a bowl combine brussels sprouts and shallots. Drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Add to baking sheet. Bake for 18 minutes. Watch them toward the end. There is a fine line from roasted to burnt. There is no need to stir or flip the vegetables.
While vegetables roast, add two tablespoons of butter to a skillet. I used a cast iron skillet because they brown so nicely. Add mushrooms and cook over a medium low heat until nice and browned.
Add garlic and continue cooking for 30 more seconds or until very fragrant. Add wine and cook until reduced by half. Add roasted vegetables and final tablespoon of butter to finish. Sprinkle with salt and serve.
