Roasted Brussels sprouts are a healthy addition to your winter table and perfect for the holidays! Watch a quick how-to video and try this delicious vegetable side-dish tonight.
Hi friend, it’s been a couple weeks! Like you, I’ve been finishing up those end-of-year projects and preparing for time off and the holidays. In the past, I might’ve tried to do it all (and consequently beaten myself up over falling short), but this year, I’ve set an intention to practice self-compassion. Not to say I’m perfect. (What’re the holidays without at least one mini-breakdown?) But I’ve accepted that life will go on even if I don’t send out Christmas cards or gift out homemade essential oil laundry sprays.
Thankfully, a busy schedule doesn’t mean you need to miss out on your veggies. They’re even more essential when you’re feeling anxious, exhausted, and/or flu-buggy. So cue the roasted Brussels sprouts! They’re easy to make (watch my quick, how-to video below), packed with immune-boosting nutrients, and you can add in different sauces and toppings to switch up the flavor profiles. I’m sharing three favorite combos in today’s recipe: cranberry walnut, honey mustard, and apple sesame. Choose one or make all three!

Roasted Brussels sprouts are a healthy addition to your table + perfect for the holidays!
- 1 pound Brussels sprouts halved
- 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil or cooking oil of choice
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 mandarin oranges juice
- 1/3 cup walnuts halves and pieces
- 1/3 cup dried cranberries
- 1/2 teaspoon crushed rosemary
- 2 tablespoons mustard whole grain
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 2 tablespoons apple juice
- 1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
In a large bowl, combine halved Brussels sprouts, oil, and salt and pepper.
Spread Brussels sprouts cut-side down in a single layer on the baking sheet. Place baking sheet on the center rack of the oven and roast until tender and browned in areas, about 30-40 minutes.
While the Brussels sprouts are in the oven, prepare sauces and toppings. To prepare Cranberry Walnut Brussels Sprouts, combine mandarin orange juice, walnuts, cranberries, and crushed rosemary in a bowl and set aside. To prepare Honey Mustard Brussels Sprouts, combine mustard, lemon juice, honey, and minced garlic in another bowl and set aside. To make the Apple Sesame Brussels Sprouts, combine apple juice, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, sesame oil, and sesame seeds in a third bowl and set aside.
Once the Brussels sprouts are cooked, remove the baking sheet from the oven and divide Brussels sprouts between each of the prepared sauces. Toss each until the Brussels sprouts are evenly coated, transfer to a serving dish, and enjoy!
Brussels sprouts may be roasted ahead of time and reheated in the oven or microwave prior to serving. Leftovers can be chopped and tossed in salads.
