Date Syrup & Walnut Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Roasted brussels sprouts are one of my favorite vegetable side dishes during the fall months. These crispy brussels sprouts are tossed in olive oil, date syrup, walnuts and salt and baked until brown.

I love this sweet & savory side dish with a side of my slow-roasted lemon dill salmon or harissa lentil burgers. They’re perfect for your next holiday get together, or as a simple side dish to you weeknight meal.

With Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish new year) just a few days away, I’ve been narrowing down my menu full of sweet dishes to serve for our meals. I love the added caramelization the date syrup adds to this recipe, which pairs so well with the crunchy, salty walnuts.

How to make roasted brussels sprouts with date syrup and walnuts

  1. Trim and slice your brussels sprouts
  2. Toss them in a bowl with olive oil, date syrup, walnuts and salt
  3. Transfer them to a greased sheet pan and roast them for about 35 minutes in a 400 degree oven, until they start to brown and crisp
  4. Garnish with cinnamon infused date syrup and flakey salt and enjoy with your favorite main course!

Tips to making the best brussels sprouts:

  • use an extra virgin olive oil for the best quality and taste
  • make sure to trim off any black parts of the brussels sprouts
  • spread them apart on the sheet pan and don’t overcrowd! this is key to getting them crispy. I also preheat the sheet pan while the oven preheats

This recipe comes together so quickly, and is made with only a handful of ingredients.

This simple side dish is going to be on repeat all season, and I can’t wait for you all to try it!
