How Do You Make Roasted Brussels Sprouts
This Roasted Brussels Sprouts recipe is so easy and you only need FOUR INGREDIENTS! (in addition to the Brussels sprouts)
First, preheat the oven to 400 F˚. Then, slice the bottoms off the Brussels sprouts, cut them in half length-wise, and place them in a large bowl. Toss them with some low-sodium veggie broth and season with a little kosher salt and ground black pepper.
Now, lay the sprouts cut-side down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 20 minutes. They should be a little browned and tender.
If needed, just let them cook an extra 5 minutes or so.
While the sprouts get all nice and toasty go ahead and prepare the maple balsamic glaze and set it aside. When there are about 5 minutes left to cook, preheat a nonstick skillet or cast iron skillet over medium heat.
Remove the Brussels sprouts from the oven, toss them into the skillet, and let cook for about a minute. Then, pour the maple balsamic glaze over the roasted Brussels sprouts. Make sure they’re well coated then let them cook for about 5-10 minutes. You want the glaze to evaporate and the Brussels sprouts to carmelize and char a bit.
Once they’re done just remove them from the stove and enjoy as a healthy snack or a delicious side dish for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Or September. Or October. Really, it doesn’t matter. There is no bad time to enjoy these things.
A true masterpiece of a side dish and you didn’t even have to really try. You, my friend, are a BOSS!
What Do Roasted Brussels Sprouts Taste Like
They’re freaking great!
These roasted Brussels sprouts are sweet, tangy, and a little salty from the soy sauce.
Cooking the Brussels sprouts on the stovetop after the oven really gives them that nice char with the crispy edge. It really brings out that roasted flavor. And, it helps them to carmelize very nicely.

- Preheat your oven to 400 F˚.
- Trim off the end of the brussels sprouts, slice in half length-wise, and place the brussels sprouts into a large bowl. Add the veggie broth, season with a little salt & pepper, and toss to coat the sprouts.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lay the brussels sprouts cut-side down. Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. While the sprouts cook mix together the balsamic vinegar, maple sryup, soy sauce, garlic powder, and set aside.
- When there’s about 5 minutes left for the sprouts to cook in the oven, preheat a nonstick skillet or cast iron skillet over medium heat. I prefer cast iron for this recipe.
- Remove the brussels sprouts from the oven and toss them into the skillet. Let them cook for about 1 minute and then pour the maple balsamic glaze over the sprouts. Toss to coat and let them cook for 5-10 minutes. You want the glaze to disappear and the brussles sprouts to carmelize and get that bit of “char” on them.
- Remove from heat and enjoy or serve as a side dish. It’s perfect for the holidays!
