Brussels sprouts roasted to perfection in a tangy-sweet marinade of maple and balsamic. Garnish with pecans and cranberries for a fun, festive holiday side dish! (Vegan, gluten-free, oil-free.)
I love this easy, healthy holiday side dish. Tasty Brussels sprouts are tossed in a tangy-sweet marinade of maple syrup & balsamic vinaigrette, then baked to tender perfection.
It is perfect for Thanksgiving and the holiday season when Brussels sprouts are in peak season.
How to Serve Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Enjoy this dish is, or garnish with pecans and dried cranberries before serving to add some festive flavor and eye appeal. I highly recommend both of these additions.
And don't forget to drizzle the leftover maple-balsamic goodness over the top before serving for an extra boost of flavor!
