I may have squealed with delight (just a little) after finding baby Brussels sprouts at our store. And I guarantee you’ll be squealing too after devouring a batch of these tasty Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Sriracha.

Ingredients

  • Brussels sprouts. Little baby ones if they’re available, otherwise slice any fat sprouts into quarters. 
  • Sriracha Sauce. The spicy tangy flavor is a great compliment to any vegetable.
  • Maple Syrup. Use the good ‘real’ stuff. And if you’ve got extra, treat yourself to a batch of Rosemary Cashews.
  • Pecans. You can skip toasting but if you have the time, it’s worth the intensely rich flavor 5 minutes of toasting can bring out.

Serve the final dish as a side or paired with your favorite protein. For a fun toaster oven breakfast or dinner try topping your spicy-sweet sprouts with a couple of fried eggs and of course – more Sriracha!

  1. What a great way to eat the sprouts. I like baked brussels sprouts so much more than cooked one, so I will try your Sriracha-maple syrup combination.

    1. Thank you, Adina 🙂 roasted is our favorite way too! I hope you enjoy the maple-Sriracha, it’s a nice change from olive oil with salt & pepper.
