These Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic, Grapes & Figs makes for a perfect healthy holiday side dish or even as a regular weeknight dinner! With just a handful of ingredients, you’ll have this made in no time!
Toss the Brussels sprouts, grapes and figs with the olive oil and lay on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with thyme leaves, salt and pepper.
Roast for about 30-35 minutes, turning the Brussels sprouts at least once to evenly roast.
Once the Brussels sprouts are caramelized, and the grapes and figs are slightly shriveled, remove from the oven, and coat with the aged balsamic vinegar.
Top with the candied pecans and serve warm.
Roasting Brussel sprouts allows them to caramelize and develop a ton of flavour all on their own, so you also don’t need to add a ton of fat. A little bit of olive oil is enough!Don’t be worried that you are burning the Brussels sprouts. There is so much flavour from a caramelized sprout that you’re going to want to let them darken in colour.Brussels sprouts have lots of fibre, antioxidants, and are low in calories so this is a great side dish to have to balance out heavier holiday mains.
