How To Make Maple Dijon Brussels Sprouts
Time needed: 40 minutes.
Delicious maple Dijon glazed Brussels sprouts roasted and then seared to perfection. 6 ingredients are all you need for this tangy-sweet-savory side dish! This recipe is so simple and takes about 35-40 minutes, including prep time.
- Make The Marinade
- Prepare The Brussels sprouts
Slice the Brussels sprouts in half lengthwise. You can either leave the stems on or cut them off. The Brussels sprouts usually hold together much better when cooking if you leave them on.
Pour the maple Dijon sauce over the Brussels sprouts and gently stir/toss until they are all evenly coated. Place the Brussels sprouts in the fridge and let them sit for 5-10 minutes.
- Pan Frying
Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat and whip another batch of the maple dijon sauce. Toss the roasted Brussels sprouts into the skillet, add the cashews if using, and drizzle half the marinade over everything. Toss or stir and cook until the marinade begins to caramelize and the Brussels sprouts begin to char just a bit.
That’s it! These maple Dijon Brussels sprouts can be served immediately. Use the extra marinade as a dipping sauce or drizzle.
