Roasted Lemon-Honey Brussels Sprouts

Ingredients (Serves 2-3):

  • 1 lb. Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced plus more for decoration
  • 1-2 tbsp. honey


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F. 
  2. In a large bowl, mix the olive oil, salt, pepper, lemon zest and juice, and honey. Whisk up well or shake in a jar. 
  3. Trim and halve Brussels sprouts. Toss Brussels with the dressing. 
  4. Place Brussels sprouts on a roasting tray, trying to get them on a single layer so they roast and get crispy. I use parchment paper for easier cleanup. 
  5. Roast for about 30 minutes, tossing once or twice throughout cooking. They are done when they get a deep golden color and some leaves crisp up. 
  6. When they are done, taste. If they need more flavor,add a little salt and drizzle of honey or squeeze of lemon. (I always do this right before serving so they remain crispy)


  • This recipe can be doubled or tripled easily. Just make sure to roast on two or three pans and keep them on a single layer. 
  • Decorate with lemon wedges.
