Maple Orange Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pecans and Cranberries

I love to try new recipes with Brussels Sprouts. I recently tried this one with some alterations, of course, and it was not bad.



48 oz Brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered
3-4 tbsp coconut oil
3-4 tbsp maple syrup
1-2 tbsp lemon juice
3/4 cup pecans
3/4 cup dried cranberries
orange rind from one orange
salt and fresh ground pepper
Juice of one orange

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Toss Brussels sprouts with coconut oil, maple syrup, salt, and pepper. Drizzle orange juice. Roast from 10-15 minutes. Toss midstream.


Continue to roast for another 15 minutes. I like crispy and browned Brussels sprouts, so I left them on an additional 10-15 minutes. Add in pecans and cranberries and continue to roast for another 5-10 minutes.

Drizzle some orange or  lemon juice.

Serve warm.
