Ingredients You’ll Need

Ingredients needed to make roasted brussels sprouts and carrots.
  • brussels sprouts — try to get them in a similar size so they roast evenly. My brussels sprouts came in a pack there are some tiny ones! For the tiny ones, I don’t cut in half. I always wash them and pat dry beforehand.
  • olive oil — or a neutral oil of your choice.
  • garlic powder
  • salt and pepper
  • maple syrup — you need to use real maple syrup for this roasted brussels sprouts recipe. Pancake syrup is pretty much sugar water whereas maple syrup is made from the sap from maple trees.

How to Cut Brussels Sprouts

  • Slice off the bottom end of each brussels sprout.
  • Slice them in half lengthwise, so the sprout stays together.
  • Discard any discoloured leaves and the bottom of the sprout.

How to Make Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Carrots

  • Heat the oven to 450F.
  • Clean, dry, and slice the brussels sprouts in half.
  • Peel and slice the carrots into equal pieces.
  • Toss them in the olive oil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. You can toss them in a bowl or directly on the sheet pan.
  • Place the carrots and brussels sprouts cut-side down onto a sheet pan.
  • Roast for 18 minutes.
  • Take out the sheet pan and push all the brussels sprouts and carrots to the middle of the pan.
  • Drizzle the maple syrup over the brussels sprouts and carrots, toss to combine.
  • Continue roasting for 5 more minutes or until the brussels sprouts and carrots are crispy.

Recipe Tips and Notes

  • Avoid any brussels sprouts with loose yellow leaves or dark brown spots. Make sure the leaves are tightly packed.
  • Line the sheet pan if you want to have an easier time cleaning up. I like the browning I get some the sheet pan so I just roast it directly on the sheet pan.
  • Make sure the brussels sprouts are fully dried before tossing them in olive oil. If they’re wet, it’ll be difficult for the olive oil and seasoning to coat the brussels sprouts and they’ll steam in the oven instead of crisp up.
  • Make sure there’s enough space between the brussels sprouts and carrots on the sheet pan. If they’re packed too tightly together, they’ll steam instead of roast.

Variations

  • Make bacon, carrots, and brussels sprouts by adding some leftover crumbled bacon on top. I usually have a bit leftover in the fridge when I make my baked bacon. If you don’t have leftover bacon, you can bake some at the same time on a different sheet pan. I don’t bake them on the same sheet pan as the flavour from the bacon and bacon fat will outpower the sriracha honey and brussels sprouts
  • Squeeze a wedge of lime over the roasted carrots and brussels sprouts before serving to give it a bright acidity flavour.
  • Add some fresh herbs such as rosemary or thyme to the sheet pan for some herby flavour.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to peel my carrots?

I always peel my carrots. It saves me from having to scrub them clean.

How should I cut carrots before roasting?

I cut mine on an angle so there’s more surface area to caramelize on the sheet pan. Try to cut them so they’re a similar size to your brussels sprouts so they roast evenly.

Why are my brussels sprouts mushy?

This usually means there isn’t enough space on the sheet pan for the vegetables. If everything is too close, the vegetables will steam up instead of roast. You want the hot air in the oven to be able to reach as much of the vegetables as possible.

How do I keep the brussels sprouts crispy?

Roasting the vegetables at a high temperature helps make them super crispy! Make sure your oven is set to 450F.

Make Ahead Tips

  • Meal prep: once cooled, store the roasted brussels sprouts and carrots in an airtight container for up to 4 days in the fridge. Reheat them in the oven or air fryer to keep them crispy.
