Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic-Maple Glaze

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic-Maple Glaze

Updated with new pictures and additional text (originally posted October 11, 2016).

We love roasted Brussels sprouts in the “Yay! For Food” household.

It’s a wonderful side dish option that’s simple, but flavourful with only a few ingredients.

The enjoy-to-make two-ingredient balsamic-maple glaze adds a little extra oomph! The sweet and tangy glaze goes great with the savoury flavour of Brussels sprouts.It’s also vegan and gluten-free for those of you with dietary restrictions.

TIP: When looking for Brussels sprouts, pick ones that are vibrant green, tightly compact, and firm. The smaller Brussels sprouts (my personal preference) tend to be sweeter and flavourful than the larger ones, which often taste more like cabbage.

I hope you enjoy this recipe!

I have made these several times. The amount of maple to balsamic vinegar is perfect. I add some chopped bacon and Parmesan - and that makes it more enticing for my teenager. Thank you for sharing and ultimately blessing my home.

Hi Sandy, it's best that the Brussels sprouts be served immediately. The longer it sits, the less crispy it will be.
