Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Boil water.

  6. Drain sprouts and pat try.
  7. In large bowl, toss sprouts, olive oil, salt, and pepper until well combined.
  8. When all sprouts are coated in oil, spread onto lined baking dish or sheet to roast. (HINT: Stop at this step and cover sprouts and store in fridge until you're ready to roast them if you want to do this a few days in advance.)
  9. Roast for 30 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes with spatula or large spoon to ensure even browning.
  10. Add and stir in maple syrup.
  11. Continue to roast until tender (about 15 minutes, 45 minutes total roasting time).
  12. Toss roasted sprouts with hazelnuts and serve.
  13. Bon appétit!
