Ingredients & Equipment Used In This Recipe

For your convenience, any specialized or notable ingredients and equipment needed for this recipe have been listed below and linked to Amazon or other stores if available online. The full list of ingredients with measurements is found in the recipe card.

Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use both cup measurements and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog! I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. You can mix cup measurements with weighted measurements, but never imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, litres, etc.,).

Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Glaze

Yield: 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

These Roasted Brussels Sprouts with balsamic glaze are sweet, savory, and are a delicious side dish that works great with salmon and pork.


  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb (450g) Brussels sprouts, rinsed and cut in half
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • ⅓ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp real maple syrup


  1. Preheat oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large cast iron skillet or another oven-safe dish over medium-high heat. Add Brussels sprouts to skillet and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook for several minutes, stirring occasionally until the sprouts begin to turn brown.
  3. Once browned, transfer the skillet into the center of the preheated oven and roast for 15-20 minutes, stirring halfway through. Remove sprouts from the oven once they are tender and start to turn a rich brown color.
  4. While the sprouts are roasting, add balsamic vinegar and maple syrup to a small pan and heat over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, then reduce heat to medium. Continue stirring until the vinegar mixture reduces to about a third of its original volume and becomes thick and syrupy. (Do not overcook or it will become too hard and sticky).
  5. To serve, transfer Brussels sprouts to a plate and drizzle lightly with balsamic glaze. Season with salt and pepper, if desired, and enjoy immediately with Maple-Balsamic Boneless Pork Chops or other entrée of your choice.
