This delectable vegan & gluten free recipe for Maple Roasted Brussel Sprouts & Apples is the perfect side dish for Thanksgiving, Christmas or a fall dinner party!
It’s day five & the last day of “Thanksgiving Week” on WhitneyBond.com!
While I certainly couldn’t pick a favorite between all of the recipes this week including Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Stuffing, Oven Roasted Turkey with Cranberry Jalapeno Relish, Baked Sweetpotato & Three Cheese Dip, Cranberry Apple Sangria, and this recipe for Maple Roasted Brussel Sprouts & Apples, my boyfriend made his favorite immediately known, and it was this recipe for brussels sprouts.
He loved them so much that I made them two days in a row for him, and he said out of all the brussels sprouts he’s had in his life, these were the best!
I have to be honest, I was a little reluctant to make another brussels sprout recipe this year for Thanksgiving, just because last years Portobello Mushroom & Brussels Sprout Casserole was so incredibly delicious that I thought there was no way I could live up to it this year, but I did!
I still love last years take on roasted brussel sprouts, but this years recipe is also so crazy scrumptious! The good news is that the two recipes are totally different so I can absolutely get away with making both for Thanksgiving dinner this year 😉
The other great thing about this recipe is that it’s vegan, and gluten free, perfect for anyone coming to your Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving celebration that might have an aversion to meat, dairy or gluten!
I grabbed all of the ingredients for this recipe at Grocery Outlet. Their low prices, up to 60% off traditional retailers, woo hoo, make shopping for the holidays much more affordable.
If you’re in the LA or Orange County areas, Grocery Outlet is coming to you! Their two newest stores will be opening in Costa Mesa on December 3rd and Westminster on December 10th, so be sure to check those out and grab some great deals for the holidays!
Now let’s get down to business and making some bomb.com brussels sprouts (a phrase you will pretty much only hear said by a food blogger 😉 )!!
- 12 oz brussels sprouts (ends trimmed & sliced in half)
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- ½ tsp kosher salt
- ½ tsp black pepper
- 1 cup fuji apples (diced)
- ¼ cup apple cider
- ¼ cup maple syrup
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Toss the brussels sprouts, olive oil, salt, pepper, apples, apple cider and maple syrup together in a large bowl.
Spread the sprouts out in a single layer on a baking sheet.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, stirring halfway through.
Easy as that, you have a super scrumptious side dish for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or to go with any meal that calls for a side of scrumptiousness 😉
I loved the brussels sprouts just how they were, but the boyfriend wanted to try them with a little gorgonzola, and I tossed in some cranberries for fun, both of which were optionally delicious add ins!
This recipe only serves about 4 people as a side dish, so if you have 8 people coming to your Thanksgiving meal, be sure to double the recipe, if you have 12 people coming, triple it, and so on, you get the point! 😉
