Vegan Maple Mustard Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Yield: 4-6 servings

So you say you’re not a fan of Brussels sprouts, eh? Well, that’s because you haven’t tried them like this. They are every bit as addicting as French fries or popcorn.

A member of the cabbage family, Brussels sprouts have a “whang” that some people find unappealing. However, if you roast them, they become sweet and caramelized. I like mine really crispy on the outside, but you can shorten the roasting time by about 5 minutes for less color and crunch.

They are delicious plain. But they are extra-special tossed in my light tangy-sweet vinaigrette before the final five minutes of roasting.

Be prepared for these not to make it to the table if you let yourself pop the first one in your mouth over the stove.

  1. Yum! I tried this, but I was midway through putting the vinaigrette together when I realized I didn't have maple syrup. I had to use honey, but it was still delish. I wanted to lick the plate. Oh who am I kidding — I did lick the plate. LOL


  2. You cutie. Honey, maple syrup, what the heck? I have a confession that won't surprise you a bit: I drag my finger through all the yummy bits in the bottom of the roasting pan once it's (barely) cool enough to touch. Oh, and you know I don't do it just once. 🙂

  3. I've made these several times now, and I've nicknamed them "little nuggets of heaven." The sweetness of the balsamic and syrup really balance out the bitterness of the sprouts, and I leave them in the oven until they are black and crunchy. It's a shame more people aren't fans of brussels sprouts because this is really, the best recipe I've made. And so quick and easy!

  4. Wow, you've made my day…and it's been a very good day! I love your name for them. You are so right about the balance issue, and I too like them very crispy. I love roasting because it leaves my hands free. I'm thrilled this recipe has worked so well for you. Brussels sprouts are really versatile and terribly cute, but you do have to address the bitterness issue, no?

    Here's to "BS"!
