  15. The one time I made brussel sprouts they were bitter. I’m sure I did something wrong. You’ve given me to courage to try again. And I love anything with craisins. πŸ™‚

    1. If you didn’t like the bitter, I suggest that you wait until later in the season. They are winter veggies – so, depending on where you live, you’ll start seeing them October – February or so. If you’ve had a bad experience and want to try them again, try them when they are at their best!

  16. I’ve been looking for a Brussel sprouts recipe the kids will like! I’m definitely going to try this. Thanks for sharing it!

  17. I used to hate Brussels sprouts…. They were the WORST! Then…. I tried roasting them. O.M.G!!!! They are officially my favorite veggie now!

    1. Hahaha! I love to hear the “reform” stories. And, yes, roasting makes all the difference. I had frozen brussels sprouts as a kid; I didn’t like them them then either. I still don’t like them frozen πŸ™‚

  18. It wasn’t until I was into my 40’s that I tried brussel sproats! They are now one of my favorites. I usually just roast them on their own with a bit of organic olive oil and sea salt, but I have pinned this recipe to try for sure! What’s not to love. Walnuts, apples, craisins and brussel sproats! Yum

  19. Tried brussels sprouts as a child…….hated it! I’ve been turn my nose up at brussels sprouts ever since. maybe i should give it another shot

    1. I do think it’s really hard for children to develop the taste for bitter flavors. Maybe now, your taste buds will like them πŸ™‚

  20. My neighbor just made the best Brussels sprouts recipe I’ve ever had. He grilled them and tossed in panceta and it was caramelized to perfection! They were crunchy and had a very earthy flavor, the crunch was the perfect edition to this meal. Best of all I didn’t feel the least bit guilty after eating them.

  21. I love Brussels Sprouts so I could eat this everyday! Who can resist this healthy, delectable dish! Thanks for sharing your Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples & Craisins recipe with us on the Plant-Based Potluck Party Blog Hop. I’m pinning and sharing.

  22. Thank you for the wonderful recipe. I thought I hated brussels sprouts but stumbled on a great brussels sprout salad at Whole Foods a few years back. Today I found your recipe and it’s fantastic! No bitter flavor at all, and the seasonings work so well together. I used sunflower oil, pomegranate vinegar, maple syrup, salt and pepper – and left out the cranberries since we had none. Perfection. & the flavor of the salad seems like it would lend itself to many other combinations of seasonings too. Thanks again! πŸ™‚

    1. I’m so glad!!! If you like this – you can kick it up a bit. Sometimes I do a base salad – however you like (arugula, mixed greens, whatever) with whatever toppings you like. But make a (assuming no allergies) walnut oil and apple cider vinaigrette. Toss the salad in the dressing and put your warm brussels sprouts on top. Brussels sprouts heaven.
