Veggies are a great everyday staple in the freezer section, since they're picked at the peak of ripeness, locking in their nutrients and flavor. Even in the dead of winter, they're free to become a dinner party-worthy side, as is the case with these Pictsweet brussels sprouts, which are tossed with balsamic vinaigrette, crumbled bacon, onion, and garlic, and roasted until just tender. Best of all, they're ready in a flash.
