Maple balsamic glazed Brussels sprouts

December 16, 2015


I clearly love Brussels sprouts, and this is THE way to serve them during the holidays. The maple syrup takes away the bitterness, the balsamic vinegar gives them a nice glaze, and the walnuts and garlic add extra flavor. They are the perfect holiday side dish. I love serving them with the stuffed pumpkins and green beans


Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 30 minutes


- 20 Brussels sprouts, halved 

- 4 cloves of garlic, peeled 

- 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

- 2 Tbsp maple syrup 

- 1 handful of raw walnuts, roughly chopped

- 1-2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

- sea salt and freshly ground black pepper 


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200 ºC. 

  2. Place the halved Brussels sprouts and peeled garlic cloves on a baking tray. Toss with olive oil and maple syrup. Roast until tender, about 20 minutes. 

  3. For the last 5 minutes add the chopped walnuts and toss well. Keep roasting. 

  4. In the last minute add the balsamic vinegar and let it sizzle away quickly in the oven for 2 more minutes. 

  5. Take out the tray and season with sea salt and black pepper.
