Date Syrup Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Date Syrup Roasted Brussels Sprouts

If you are a Brussels sprouts lover like us, you probably have at least a few methods in your arsenal to make them crispy and beautifully caramelized. This recipe builds on the classic roasting method, and adds a couple of exotic flavors borrowed from North Africa and the Middle East.

First – the use of date syrup (sometimes called date molasses). This is a great condiment to stock on, and if you haven’t used it yet, we are sure you would love it. It is sweet and slightly tangy, and because it has a low-glycemic index, it is healthier than many other sources of sugar. The date molasses will help the veggies achieve this beautiful brownish, crisply tint.

Second – to add extra savory notes we are using a Moroccan spice mix – Ras El Hanout. You can purchase it readymade, or mix it yourself, and we provided a quick and easy recipe here.

Finally – a generous sprinkle of chopped dates, will add a satisfying texture and a pretty garnish, making this Brussel Sprouts recipe suitable for festive occasions. Nobody will guess it took no more than 10 minutes to prep.
