Hands down, roasted brussels sprouts are my favorite way to enjoy these tiny little cabbage heads! In fact, I used to think I didn't like brussels sprouts until I tried them roasted. But as much as I love a classic roasted brussels sprouts with a drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper roasted to crispy, caramelized, crunchy perfection, sometimes I want a little extra flavor. And that's where these guys come in - roasted brussels tossed in a super simple maple dijon dressing right before serving. Bonus? They're simple enough for a weeknight dinner but flavorful enough to hold their own on a holiday table.
What You Need
Top Tips for Maple Dijon Brussel Sprouts
- I don't recommend making these in advance - you'll lose the crispness of fresh roasted Brussels sprouts. Need to prep a little ahead? Try whisking up the simple dressing and refrigerating up to 48 hours in advance. You can also trim and slice your brussels sprouts up to 24 hours in advance so all you have to do is toss on a tray with olive oil, salt, and pepper and roast when you're ready.
- Toss the roasted brussels with the dressing just prior to serving - you don't want them to sit in the sauce for a while and get soggy!
- Feel free to add any extras after roasting for more fun. Think dried cranberries, slivered almonds, pumpkin or sunflower seeds, toasted pine nuts, etc.
Are these maple mustard brussel sprouts healthy?
I totally think so! They're a vegetable, and given that the CDC states 90% of American adults don't consume recommended fruit and vegetable intake, I'm a big fan of more fruits and vegetables in any way! Plus Brussels sprouts are high in fiber, antioxidants, vitamin K, and can contribute to many health benefits offered by a balanced diet.
Know, too, that “healthy” is subjective. The foods that help one maintain their health may or may not work for you - and that’s okay! Honor the body you have. As a registered dietitian nutritionist, I suggest eating a variety of nourishing foods that help you feel good and achieve or maintain your health, balanced with the foods you love. Remember - an election isn’t won with every vote, but the majority. Your health is the same way - the overall dietary pattern is what matters most.
