Brussels Sprouts Roasted With Red Onions in a Balsamic Glaze (GF/Paleo)

This recipe for Brussels Sprouts Roasted With Red Onions in a Balsamic Glaze is one of my favorite "go to" side dish for Fall gatherings. The flavors pair especially well with roasted turkey or pork. The sweetness of the onions is a nice contrast to the strong taste of the brussels sprouts. This dish will definitely be on my Thanksgiving table again this year! 



Brussels Sprouts and Red Onions With Balsamic Glaze


Recipe: Serves 8 (3/4 cup per serving)


Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 pounds brussels sprouts, trimmed 
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pound red onions, thickly sliced
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup Note: Can be omitted if following the Whole 30 Diet
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons salt
Preparation:
  1. Preheat oven to 450° degrees. Coat a large nonstick baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Slice brussels sprouts in half, place on prepared baking sheet. Add oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt and pepper; toss well to coat. Roast, stirring and rotating pan halfway through cooking, about 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine vinegar, maple syrup and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small saucepan; set over medium-high heat. Boil, stirring frequently, until thick and syrupy, about 3 minutes.
  4. Spoon Brussels sprouts into a serving dish; drizzle with syrup mixture just before serving.
