Honey Roasted Brussels Sprouts

These honey roasted brussels sprouts are sure to be a crowd pleaser- even to those who swear that they are not a fan of brussels sprouts!  

My favorite way to eat brussel sprouts are roasted in the oven and crisped to perfection.  Sometimes, I add bacon  and other times I add a variety of spices.  But lately, since I have been on a raw honey kick, I thought it would be fun to add a drizzle to my roasted veggies.  The pistachios add a salty crunch that brings all of the flavors together.

Ingredients:

  • 2lbs brussels sprouts cut quartered
  • ½ cup avocado oil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • ¼ cup raw honey
  • ½ cup shelled unsalted roasted pistachio nuts

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 400 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Place your quartered brussels sprouts on your baking
  • Add avocado oil and salt and mix, coating evenly.  Be sure to space evenly into a single layer*
  • Bake in the oven for 25 minutes, tossing halfway through
  • Remove pan from oven and add the honey and pistachios to the brussels sprouts, coating evenly*
  • Roast in the oven an additional 5 minutes
  • Remove from oven and let rest for a few minutes so that the honey can  coagulate and stick to the brussels sprouts

Notes:

  • These steps can be done by adding the brussels sprouts to a bowl and mixing in the ingredients, but hey-why dirty another dish?
