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 never had brussels sprouts before but these look fantastic! I am going to make this for Christmas for mom and dad this year! Terry hates brussel sprouts but I know this recipe will wow him because he has only ever ate it boiled to death when he was a kid. hah ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Roasted Brussels are really good… and even better with the glaze! I’ve had such a bad experience with boiled Brussels sprouts when I was younger, but since I learned to look for the smaller, firm sprouts (they are sweeter and less bitter in my opinion) and roasted them, I love them!

  • have you ever tried getting a stalk of brussels sprouts and cutting them off one by one? oof, it takes days and i don’t recommend. anyways, these sound delicious! i usually season mine with some olive oil and garlic, but a balsamic-maple glaze sounds like a nice change of pace.

    • I have never bought a stalk of Brussels sprouts before, but they sure look neat. The extra work to get them off the stalk doesn’t sound fun at all.

  • I made this and LOVED it! Mom was so impressed by this (she’s trying to eat more healthy but she never knew it could be so flavourful!) and Terry who is a brussels sprouts hater – changed his mind about brussels sprouts! haha. Definitely will be my go to recipe for brussel sprouts ๐Ÿ™‚

  • This is such a good idea!! I need this in my tummy RIGHT NOW!! Haha!! I will be making this next week – just watch this space… thanks for the recipe ๐Ÿ™‚ x

  • Hi! I made these today and they were…DELICIOUS! I did change/add a couple of things. I didn’t have regular balsamic vinegar but I did have balsamic raspberry vinaigrette. So, I took out the olive oil and them I also added some chopped apples. It came out SOOOOO delicious! I would recommend this recipe…HIGHLY! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!
