Apricot Glazed Roasted Brussels Sprouts

READY IN: 30mins
YIELD: 4-6




  • Sprouts -- Heat your oven to 425 and line a baking or cookie sheet with parchment paper. To prepare the sprouts, I peel the first outside layers of leaves off if brown or wilted, then cut in half lengthwise, keeping the stem in tact. This will keep the sprouts from falling apart. You can trim the stem a little if it is brown, but usually buying them today either at markets or in a grocery store they are very well cleaned.
  • In a small bowl add the sprout halves, olive oil, dill, salt and pepper and lightly toss. Put on the baking sheet with parchment paper and put in the oven.
  • Baking -- Cook 12-15 minutes and then check. At that point, I like to flip them over so they brown equally on both sides and cook another 10 minutes until tender but still have a little bite to them. I don't like them too soft. But please cook them to the texture you like.
  • Sauce -- As the sprouts are roasting add all the ingredients for the sauce (jam, vinegar, lemon juice and zest) in a small pot and heat on medium low and let it simmer for about 5-10 minutes.
  • Finish -- After the sprouts are done place in a large serving bowl and drizzle with the apricot glaze.
  • Enjoy! This is great served with some roasted chicken or a pork roast, mashed potatoes, etc. It reminds me of Fall food and comforting meals. Growing up Fall and weekend dinners always seem to have braised meats, slow cooked vegetables from our summer garden, and sprouts were always a part of it and always a favorite.
