Candied Brussels Sprouts

You either love or hate Brussels sprouts, right? The lovers and haters universally adorn this recipe. Guaranteed. A must try. As soon as I finished my photo-shoot with these babies, I was popping them in my mouth as if they were M&M's! Seriously! (They are much better for you than M&M's though, that I promise.)


Ingredients:
Serves 6-8
  • 12 or so Brussels sprouts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, safflower oil, or coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon yellow or Dijon mustard
  • 1 lemon
Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Slice each Brussels sprout in half using a sharp knife, and set in deep bowl.
  • Mix olive oil, balsamic, mustard, and juice of ½ the lemon until consistent dressing texture. You can use a food processor or shake vigorously in a covered jar.
  • Set aside 2 tablespoons of dressing for later. Distribute remaining dressing on spouts, and mix thoroughly but lightly with your hands so all sprouts are marinated.
  • Lay them flat on a baking pan, and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, toss them around, and add in your 2 tablespoons of dressing that you set aside. Toss again.
  • Roast in oven for additional 10 minutes at 250 degrees.
  • Remove from oven, sprinkle with juice from remaining lemon halve, and serve hot.
  • You can also refrigerate these and toss them in a chilled salad the next day!

Who thought Brussels sprouts could taste so good??

  4. Thank you for sharing this recipe - I've made a similar recipe but with maple syrup added. This one is probably more healthy.
