Recipe: Spicy Maple Glazed Brussels Sprouts

I was lucky enough to have a mom that didn't force us to eat things we didn't like. Welllll, maybe it was more like things SHE didn't like, but I was into it nonetheless. One of the things I never had to eat as a child was brussels sprouts. It wasn't until after college, at some chichi LA place, that I first tried them. The brussels sprouts were pretty much coated in oil and bacon and were DELICIOUS. I mean, of course they did; bacon makes everything taste better.

Well now fast-forward a few years and now I have a boyfriend obsessed with all things hot and spicy. Think I'm kidding? This was the best day of his life:


So when I came across the recipe below for spicy maple glazed brussels sprouts, I knew I had to make them. The verdict? Absolutely sensational. Don't believe brussels sprouts can taste good? Try for yourself with the recipe below!


Ingredients (for 4 servings):
  • 2lbs Loose Brussels Sprouts
  • 6 Tbsp Sriracha
  • 6 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 Cup Maple Syrup
  • 1 Clove Garlic
  • EVOO
  • Salt and Pepper

Step 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees


Step 2
Trim and clean brussels sprouts. Cut brussels sprouts in half or in quarters depending on size. Note that they will shrink significantly when cooked.


Step 3
Place clean brussels sprouts in a 9"x13" baking dish. Coat in EVOO and season lightly with salt and pepper. Cook for 15-20 minutes.


Step 4
While the brussels sprouts are cooking, prepare the sauce. Chop the garlic finely and then whisk together the sriracha, soy sauce, maple syrup, and garlic.


Step 5
After the brussels sprouts have finished roasting, take them out of the oven. Pour your glaze all over the brussels sprouts and mix evenly. Return to oven for another 15-20 minutes. When they are almost done, turn on the broiler for about 2 mins, just to crisp them up a bit.


Step 6
Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Once cool, scoop the brussels sprouts out with as much of the glaze as you'd like. 


Enjoy!

  3. Thanks so much for sharing this, Julia! I finally got around to making these and it was a hit. Have you ever tried to make it with less maple syrup? I wasn't tasting the spice much over the maple syrup flavor.
