Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts Ingredients

  • Brussel Sprouts: You can find Brussel Sprouts in your local supermarket; they even come on the stalk. Make sure the leaves are vibrant green and not bruised and brown.
  • Sweet Potatoes: I used both orange and purple sweet potatoes, but it is fine to use the more popular orange flesh. 
  • Olive Oil: a little olive oil to help with the caramelization of the vegetables. 
  • Garlic: I love a lot of garlic, so I used 4 cloves. You can use more or less according to your taste. 
  • Maple Syrup: I added the maple syrup to bring out the sweet flavors of this dish, you can substitute the maple syrup with agave. 
  • Lemon juice balances out the sweet flavors, giving a fresh, vibrant taste. You can substitute lemon juice with lime juice.
  • Smoked Paprika: For a delicious smokey flavor, this smoke paprika is amazing, you can substitute it with liquid smoke.
  • Salt: sea salt is perfect to use. 

How To Make Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet with lightly oiled parchment paper.
  • Place Brussels sprouts, cubed sweet potatoes, olive oil, garlic, maple syrup, lemon juiced, smoked paprika, and salt in a large bowl and toss to fully coat.
  • Spread veggies in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast for 30 minutes, turning halfway until tender.

I added purple sweet potatoes just for the color so you can just use regular orange-fleshed sweet potatoes.

My son Daevyd was so fascinated with seeing Brussels Sprouts on their trunk,  I just had to capture the moment. I knew that he would most likely enjoy them once they are roasted.
