Growing up, I don’t recall ever having Brussels sprouts as part of our holiday spread. We never had them, but I knew the legend of the sprouts: they’re weird and gross and kids don’t like them. Phew! Thankfully they’re not traditional in our home. 

Well. Who knew that Brussels Sprouts were so damn delicious?! 

Lots of folks, apparently. Ever since we started massaging kale and serving whole heads of roasted cauliflower, cruciferous vegetables have been having their moment in the spotlight. And with good reason! So tasty! So healthy! 

I’m a bit of a late bloomer in the b-sprouts department, but I’m hoping to make up for lost time with this super easy roasted Brussels sprouts recipe: Miso Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts. Ohhhhhhhhhh yeah!!! 

Picture this: Brussels sprouts getting all roasty toasty on a sheet pan in your oven, then tossed with a zesty miso maple dressing, and then sprinkled with pomegranate arils to be all fancy and festive and shizz. 

Shall we get into things? Let’s go!

What goes into Miso Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts?

  • Brussels sprouts (did I even need to type that one out?!)
  • Maple syrup! 
  • Miso paste
  • Some sort of soy sauce. I prefer Bragg’s Liquid Aminos because they’re nice and light, but you can use whatevs. 
  • Apple cider vinegarI used the funky kind with the “mother” included.
  • Dijon mustard. To class this stuff up.

How do you make these Miso Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts?

The single most time-consuming part of making these healthy roasted Brussels Sprouts is trimming and halving the sprouts. I think that took me a whole 10 minutes. Phew!

Once that part is done, you toss the sprouts with some olive oil and salt and pepper, and spread ’em out on a sheet pan for roasting. You want to make sure the sprouts have a good amount of room. If you crowd them on the sheet pan they’ll get anxiety. No, just kidding. Sprouts don’t have feelings. OR DO THEY?! 

They probably don’t. But if you cram too many on one pan they’ll end up steaming instead of roasting and getting all crispy and delicious, and crispy and delicious is what we’re going for. 

While you’re sprouts are roasting – which takes all of 15 – 20 minutes in a nice hot oven – you’ll whisk together the dressing. It’s a simple matter of whisking together miso paste, maple syrup, oil, apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, and some dijon mustard. Sounds crazy, but just go with it. 

When you’re sprouts come out of the oven, just put in a serving dish, toss with the dressing, and you’re done. 

REAL TALK: I added those pomegranate arils for photographic purposes only, but they turned out to be hella delicious and add a nice crunchy contrast. I strongly recommend you include them.

Pro tips / recipe notes:

  • Is it hard to make these Brussels sprouts? No! It’s easy! These are easy roasted Brussels sprouts!
  • Is this recipe vegan? It’s vegan AF, mothafuckas!
  • Can I make these Brussels sprouts in advance? Yup! You can roast, set aside, and then re-heat and add the dressing at the last minute. 
  • Is this recipe gluten-free? You bet your ass it is. 
  • Will these Brussels sprouts give me the toots? That’s between you and the sprouts, my friend. But there’s no shame in a little cruciferous-induced flatulence. No shame at all. 

Hey Nutrition Lady, What’s the deal with Brussels sprouts?

Glad you asked!

Brussels sprouts, or b-sprouts as I like to call them, are members of the Brassica family, which also includes broccoli, cauliflowers, and cabbage. So it’s no mistake that they look like tiny cabbages! 

Brussels sprouts are jam packed with important nutrients, and are particularly rich in vitamin K, which is vital for both cardiovascular and bone health. There’s also a boat load of vitamin C, folate, manganese, and vitamin B6. Dietary fiber is your friend, and brussels sprouts aren’t shy in the fiber department. 

Those Brussels toots you might experience? They’re due partially to the fiber, and partially due to sulforaphane, one of the many phytonutrients Brussels sprouts contain. 

Brussels sprouts are best served lightly steamed or roasted in order to preserve their nutrients.

  1. Looking good, Miss K! I also wasn’t introduced to B-Sprouts until later in life (I’m from Florida so perhaps I can be excused) but as a liker of all the gorgeous bitter green veg, I love Brussels sprouts. I even make a sweet and sour one with crispy rice and pomegranate arils! Love the simplicity of the this super side. Gorgeous styling too x

  2. I beg to differ! Brussels sprouts were always part of the Christmas fare when you were growing up. You probably just chose to ignore them😄. But they weren’t fancy maple glazed Brussels sprouts which may just be what’s on the table this years.. They sound delicious.
