Step 3) Transfer steamed Brussels sprouts to a baking dish. Sprinkle with salt, and drizzle with balsamic vinegar and honey.

Step 4) Bake coated Brussels sprouts in a preheated 375 degree oven for 15 – 20 minutes. Remove from oven when Brussels sprouts are just beginning to caramelize.

Step 5) Garnish with pomegranate seeds and serve!
