Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Carrots

This recipe is from my mother. It may sound strange, but these are really good and very easy to make. The Brussels sprouts should be brown with a bit of black on the outside when done. Any leftovers can be reheated or even just eaten cold from the fridge. I don’t know how, but they taste sweet and salty at the same time!
