Active Time:

Total Time:
30 mins


  • 1 ½ pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons honey


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Toss Brussels sprouts, oil, thyme, salt and pepper together on a large rimmed baking sheet; spread in a single layer. Roast until the Brussels sprouts are tender and browned, about 20 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, combine vinegar and honey in a small saucepan; cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thickened and syrupy, about 5 minutes.

  3. Transfer the Brussels sprouts to a serving dish. Drizzle the balsamic mixture evenly over the Brussels sprouts and serve.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
