Balsamic Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Is it just me, or does this stalk of brussel sprouts sort of resemble a Christmas tree? (Or is this me being cheesy and doing a bit of wishful thinking?!).  It’s amazing how a stalk of farmer’s market veggies can turn into a batch of incredibly tasty, sweet, savory balsamic roasted brussel sprouts…

During this time of year, I think it’s safe to say most of us can benefit from getting more greens on our plate (to balance out the rest of what’s usually happening).

If you love brussels half as much as I do, keep reading!

This recipe is basic and gourmet at the same time.  These brussels go great on the side with ready-made proteins like rotisserie chicken, and a carb of your choice!


  • This is not a low FODMAP recipe, since brussel sprouts are naturally high in FODMAPs. 
  • If you have a sucrose intolerance, I recommend swapping the balsamic vinegar for red wine vinegar which is 100% sucrose-free.
  • This original recipe calls for garlic and onion powder, which aren’t always tolerated by folks on a sucrose intolerance diet or a low FODMAP diet.
  • Please feel free to omit and replace with other seasonings like rosemary, sage, thyme, and garlic scapes* (a low FODMAP version of garlic) depending on what you can tolerate!
