Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Maple Syrup, Oil and Salt
This simple side dish is one of the easiest and most delicious ways to make Brussels sprouts (IMO!) and takes about 20 minutes to make from start to finish. Brussels sprouts are full of fiber, as well as vitamin K, vitamin C and many other micronutrients . They're also so tasty when roasted and crispy! Plus, adding a touch of maple syrup provides a sweet taste, as well as carbohydrates, which is helpful for athletes looking to increase their carbohydrate intake. This easy, quick, no-hassle recipe is going to become a staple in your house!
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Ingredients (yields 4 servings):
16 oz brussels sprouts
1/4 C oil (I like to use avocado oil)
2 1/2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
1/4 tsp salt
Nonstick cooking spray
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Wash Brussels sprouts, pat dry with paper towel and trim stalk. Then, cut each in half (or quarters, if very large)
3. In a small bowl, whisk together oil, maple syrup and salt. Set aside.
4. Spray baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. I like to line the baking sheet with aluminum foil, which makes for an easier (and less sticky) clean-up. Transfer Brussels sprouts to baking sheet and drizzle oil and maple syrup mixture over vegetables. Using a spoon, toss the vegetables until coated.
5. Bake in oven for approximately 15 minutes, or until desired crispiness. Enjoy!
