These Asiain Maple Glazed Brussel Sprouts were designed for anyone who doesn't like brussel sprouts. The texture and flavor is totally unexpected - crispy, crunchy, sweet, and spicy.
Honestly, plain steamed brussels are not my jam. If you're into that, I admire you for being an OG veggie lover.
The stereotypical steamed brussel sprouts recipe made me really dislike brussels - until I learned the best way to cook them. I took inspiration from my favorite cuisine (Asian) and created a soy-sauce inspired glaze (completely soy-free).
These brussels are crispy, crunchy, and have a sweet + spicy glaze drizzled over them. We love adding a little extra spice to ours too.
These Asian Maple Glazed Brussel Sprouts are a crowd-pleaser when served as an appetizer or a side. When serving as a side, try pairing with a stir fry and brown rice.
This recipe is:

Asian Maple Glazed Brussel Sprouts
- 1 bag or bunch brussel sprouts
- 1 tsp avocado oil or parchment paper for oil-free
- 1 tsp garlic powder or fresh minced garlic
- ¼ cup coconut aminos
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp chili paste or 1/4 tsp red chili flakes
- 1 tsp sesame seeds
- 1 tsp rice vinegar
- ½ tsp turmeric powder
- 1 tsp white pepper or black pepper
- ¼ tsp sea salt optional
- Preheat oven to 400º. Prep non-stick baking sheet or parchment paper on a sheet.
- Quarter the brussel sprouts so they're small (they'll get crispier this way). Drizzle avocado oil on the pan and then toss the brussels to coat.
- Bake for ~20-25 min. Keep an eye on them as you want them to get crispy without burning.
- Mix all the sauce ingredients in a bowl. Once brussels are done, toss in sauce until fully coated and serve while hot.
- Option to leave out the chili paste if you're not a fan of spicy foods.
