This maple glazed carrots and roasted brussel sprouts recipe has been a favorite holiday side of mine for a while, but for some reason, I’ve never thought to share the recipe. Until now!
I think most people have the misconception that brussel sprouts are gross, but that couldn’t be further from the truth with this recipe. The spices on both the carrots and brussel sprouts blend together to make the vegetables incredibly flavorful, while the maple syrup adds a touch of sweetness to the dish. Feel free to experiment with the spices used!
One-pan dishes are crucial to me over the holidays. As much as I love spending time making a delicious meal, I’m more concerned with spending time with family and friends over the holidays. But that doesn’t mean I want to compromise on flavor! I love these maple glazed carrots and roasted brussel sprouts because all the veggies can be thrown onto one pan, cooked for 25 minutes, and they’re done!
I love when my brussel sprouts are slightly charred because it adds more depth of flavor, but feel free to cook the veggies for less time if that’s not your jam! maple syrup is used in this recipe. I tend to add the maple syrup after the vegetables have cooked, since I find it can get a bit messy on the baking sheet if added before, but feel free to do whatever you’d like! I also use 1 tablespoon of coconut oil for roasting, and save the other tablespoon to toss the veggies in after cooking, as they can dry out a bit in the oven.
This maple glazed carrots and roasted brussel sprouts recipe is the perfect side to any holiday dish, or perfect for you to meal prep throughout the holidays to ensure that you always have a delicious vegetable on hand to keep you fueled through the holiday madness.
I hope you like this recipe as much as I do!
