  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)

  • Spread the Brussels sprouts in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  • Roast for 20-25 minutes, or until tender and caramelized, stirring halfway through.
  • While the Brussels sprouts are roasting, make the glaze. In a small saucepan, combine the maple syrup, orange juice, Dijon mustard, and red pepper flakes (if using).
  • Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  • Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes, or until the glaze has thickened slightly.
  • Once the Brussels sprouts are done roasting, remove them from the oven and transfer them to a serving bowl.

  1. For extra crispy Brussels sprouts, roast them for a few minutes longer.
  2. You can also add other vegetables to the baking sheet, such as carrots, parsnips, or sweet potatoes.
  3. If you don’t have Dijon mustard, you can use another type of mustard, such as yellow mustard or whole grain mustard.
  4. If you don’t like spicy food, you can omit the red pepper flakes.
