I love brussels sprouts. I will eat them pretty much any way, from shredded in a salad to boiled and plain. My favorite way, however, is to roast them! The sweet and tangy flavors of the maple and balsamic combined with the nutty flavor of brussels sprouts makes these even better! This easy side dish is ready in less than 30 minutes for a healthy and delicious accompaniment to almost any meal.

What are the ingredients needed for maple balsamic brussels sprouts?

just a handful of ingredients are required:

  • brussels sprouts - the star of this dish!
  • olive oil - or your favorite roasting oil, this is required for even cooking in the oven
  • salt - to help enhance the flavor
  • balsamic glaze - I prefer the glaze because it is sweeter, and thicker so it clings to the veggies better!
  • maple syrup - to add a sweetness and complement the balsamic

Is balsamic vinegar good on brussels sprouts?

The tangy balsamic flavor pairs perfectly with the taste of brussels sprouts, but in my opinion it needs a bit of sweetness which is why I prefer to use balsamic glaze and maple syrup. It is a little bit of a subtler flavor when done this way and doesn't overpower the taste of the sprouts!

How do I clean and trim brussels sprouts?

Cleaning brussels sprouts is easy! For this recipe all you need to do is remove any withered outer leaves, then slice in half lengthwise. If your brussels sprouts have a thick stalk on them you can trim it shorter, otherwise just leave it. Trimming it too short will cause the leaves to fall off.
