Crispy Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts with balsamic glaze make a delicious side dish you’ll come back to again and again. (Paleo, Vegan)


  • 1 lb. Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons olive oil or avocado oil (or another high heat oil)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (or to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper (or to taste)
  • 2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar or balsamic reduction
  • 1 Tablespoon pure maple syrup


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet/sheet pan with foil (if desired)
  2. If you haven’t already, prepare your Brussels sprouts by washing them, removing any damaged or wrinkly outer leaves, trimming the bottom of the stem, and halving them lengthwise.
  3. In a large bowl (or right on your baking sheet!), combine prepared Brussels sprouts with oil, salt, and pepper.
  4. Place Brussels sprouts cut side down in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Roast at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes, then flip the Brussels sprouts over. Cook an additional 15-20 minutes, or until you’ve got some lovely caramelization and browning. (The sprouts should be tender on the inside, with caramelized edges.)
  6. While the Brussels sprouts are roasting, make your balsamic glaze. In a small bowl, combine balsamic vinegar and pure maple syrup until smooth.
  7. When Brussels sprouts are finished roasting transfer to a serving dish or bowl and drizzle with balsamic glaze. (You may not need all the glaze. I recommend using a spoon to add glaze a bit at a time until the sprouts look covered to your liking.)
  8. Season with additional salt or pepper, as desired. 


Variations: Finish with a small squeeze of fresh lemon juice, a little bit of freshly shaved Parmesan cheese, dried cranberries, or some chopped toasted pecans
