Maple Balsamic Brussels Sprouts
Maple balsamic Brussels sprouts are roasted to perfection and make for a delicious and healthy side dish. These crispy, sweet, and tender Brussels sprouts are gluten-free and vegetarian.
- 1 pound Brussels sprouts
- 1 tablespoon avocado oil
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon chopped pecans optional
- 1 tablespoon chopped dried cherries optional
Preheat the oven to 425°Fahrenheit and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Trim off the ends of the Brussels sprouts. Cut in half.
Combine maple syrup, balsamic vinegar, avocado oil, and salt in a large bowl. Add Brussels sprouts and mix well until they are evenly coated.
Spread the Brussels sprouts evenly onto the baking sheet. Flip them over if needed to ensure the flat, cut-side is down.
Roast for 20-25 minutes, or until they are slightly charred and crispy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside.
Transfer Brussels sprouts to a large bowl and garnish with dried cherries and chopped pecans.
Optional: Make a cinnamon yogurt dip to serve with the Brussels sprouts.
