Prep Time:  15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 6 Servings

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs fresh Brussels sprouts, washed and trimmed
  • 2 TB extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 3 TB balsamic vinegar
  • 2 TB maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt

Instructions

Preheat oven to 450. Cut Brussels sprouts into even-sized pieces (halved if small, quartered if large). Toss with olive oil and 2 tsp salt and spread evenly across two parchment-lined cookie sheets. Roast for 20 minutes, stirring and rotating the pans’ positions half-way through.

Combine vinegar, maple syrup, and ¼ tsp salt in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Boil, swirling/stirring frequently, until thick and syrupy (~ 3 minutes). Drizzle over roasted Brussels sprouts before serving.
