Servings 6 people


  • 2 Large Baking Sheets
  • Cutting Board & Chef's Knife
  • Spatula


  • 1 1/2 lb Brussels Sprouts ends cut & halved
  • 1 lb Shiitake Mushrooms stems removed
  • 2 large Shallots cut into 1/4" slices
  • 4 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Fresh Black Pepper
  • 1 Lemon zested
  • Freshly Grated Parmesan
  • 1 cup Reduced Balsamic Vinegar optional


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Prep all of the vegetables as the oven comes to proper temperature.
  • In a large bowl, mix the Brussels sprouts, shiitake mushrooms and shallot with the olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • Evenly distribute the vegetables between the two baking sheets. *The key is to not overcrowd one pan.*
  • Separate the Brussels from the shiitake and shallots. *I like to put all of the Brussels onto one side of the baking sheet while leaving the shiitakes & shallots on the other side. The Brussels sprouts usually take longer to roast in the oven.*
  • Flip the Brussels Sprouts over so they are "face down". This will allow them to brown and caramelize in the oven.
  • Roast the veggies for 30 minutes. Carefully remove the shiitakes and shallots from the baking sheet with a spatula and check to see if the Brussels sprouts need additional time. Perhaps 5-10 more minutes. *You can give the baking sheet a shake to distribute the Brussels even more.*
  • While the vegetables are roasting, reduce the balsamic vinegar in a small sauce pan over medium heat. The vinegar will reduce into a thick, syrupy consistency, takes about 8-10 minutes.
  • Once the Brussels are caramelized and crispy, remove from the oven and toss with the roasted shittakes and shallot. Taste to see if additional salt & pepper is needed.
  • Add the lemon zest, freshly grated Parmesan cheese and drizzle with the reduced balsamic.
  • Dig in!!


Crumbled blue cheese also works very nicely in place of the parmesan.
