glazed maple and mustard brussels sprouts

September 15, 2013

OVEN RECIPE:

Add the following to a small jar:

1 T combination of walnut and olive oils (or whatever oil you like!)
1 T Dijon mustard
1 t – 1 T pure maple syrup
1 T lemon or lime juice
pepper, salt, nutmeg

Shake well.

Preheat oven to 400 (375 if your oven runs hot)

Wash brussels sprouts, cut in half, and remove any damaged outer leaves. Add brussels sprouts and glaze to a large mason jar, an old yogurt container or other larger lidded container. Shake well.

Lay on a baking sheet. Roast them, keeping a close watch since the sugar in the maple syrup likes to burn.

CROCKPOT RECIPE:

1 T butter (vegans can use olive oil)
1 stalk Brussels sprouts (about 2-3 cups) blemished or tough outer leaves removed, halved
1 1/2 T Dijon mustard
1 t – 1 T pure maple syrup
1 T lemon juice
2 T pecans, chopped
Coarsely ground black pepper to taste
A few twists of fresh grated nutmeg just before serving (optional)

Add all ingredients except the optional nutmeg to the crockpot. Cook on high for 2 1/2 to 3 hours until al dente. Adjust salt and pepper and add nutmeg. Serve warm.

This immediately became my favorite brussels sprout recipe of all-time. This honey-mustard glaze would be fantastic on any veggies or meat. Highly recommended!

  1. Brussel sprouts are not my favorite veggie as a child since my mother always steamed them until they were mush and they had that strong cabbage aroma. Now I’ll eat them happily if they are roasted. This recipe in particular actually sounds delicious! I will give it a try.


  2. Incidentally this recipe is very close to what I usually come up with as a

    — Salad dressing: olive oil, lemon/lime juice/acv, mustard and preferred spices.

    Also, this makes a good beef/chicken marinade as well.

    — Marinade: preferred oil, mustard, lemon juice, preferred herbs, honey (optional), salt (optional)

    🙂
