Roasted Brussels sprouts with walnuts and honey glaze

Roasted Brussels sprouts with walnuts and honey glaze

Based on 18 ratings

"This recipe takes deliciously crisp, roasted Brussels sprouts and tosses them in a tangy, sweet, and salty glaze, making them an undeniably beautiful and festive side dish. It was originally inspired by a Bon Appetit recipe for crispy Brussels sprouts with pistachios and a date syrup glaze. To make them ahead of time, roast the sprouts and make the glaze and store them separately. Reheat the sprouts with a quick slick of oil and a hot oven and reheat the glaze, before tossing and serving. You can use other nuts if you’d like, like almonds, pistachios, or hazelnuts. This glaze would also be delicious on roasted carrots or broccoli, and you can use red wine vinegar or even lemon juice if you don’t have sherry vinegar."

  • Step 2/5

    Roast brussels sprouts for approx. 15 min. Carefully shake the baking sheet to move the sprouts around and continue to roast for approx. 10 min. more. Shake baking sheet again, reduce oven temperature to 175°C/350°F, and roast approx. 15 min. more. The Brussels sprouts should be crispy and deeply browned all over, and a paring knife should slide through the center of the sprout easily. If not, roast in 5 min. intervals until tender, then remove from the oven and set aside.
