Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples, Walnuts, and Cranberries

If you are a Brussels sprouts hater, then there is no better way to change that than by mixing them with fruit, nuts, and maple syrup, then letting them roast in the oven until golden brown and crispy. This side dish is a great way to amp up vegetables by adding a lot of flavour, texture, and beautiful colours, and it tastes wonderful warm and fresh out of the oven or served as a cold salad. 


2 lb. Brussels sprouts, halved
2 medium apples, diced
1-2 shallots, diced
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup maple syrup
Salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Combine the Brussels sprouts, apples, shallot, walnuts, cranberries, and olive oil in a large bowl and toss. Evenly spread the vegetables on a large baking sheet that has been lined with foil.

Bake for 25-35 minutes. Transfer the roasted mixture into a serving bowl, drizzle with the maple syrup and gently toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm, or cold.
