Roasted Brussels Sprouts Skewers with Lemon-Thyme Dipping Sauce

Roasting Brussels sprouts produces a tender, juicy interior encapsulated by a crispy, caramelized exterior. Hemp oil lends a nutritious element to the light sauce, but you could substitute olive oil or walnut oil.



Ingredient Line: 
¼ cup lemon juice
Ingredient Line: 
3 Tbs. pure maple syrup
Ingredient Line: 
1 Tbs. hemp oil
Ingredient Line: 
2 tsp. fresh thyme leaves, whole (if small and tender), or finely chopped
Ingredient Line: 
32 Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved (about 2 lb.)
Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. safflower oil, or other high-heat oil


1. Preheat oven to 500°F. Whisk together lemon juice, maple syrup, hemp oil, and thyme in small bowl. Set aside.

2. Toss Brussels sprouts with safflower oil on large, rimmed baking sheet, and season with salt and pepper, if desired. Add 1 Tbs. water to pan, and arrange Brussels sprouts cut side down. Cover tightly with foil. Roast 10 minutes, remove foil, then roast 10 to 15 minutes more, or until Brussels sprouts are heavily browned. Toss with 2 Tbs. dipping sauce, and let rest until cool enough to handle but still warm.

3. Thread 4 Brussels sprout halves onto each skewer, and arrange on platter. Serve warm, with remaining dipping sauce on side.

Sound Great! I think I might try it!

These are REALLY good!

very happy with all the recipes thanks

These are so good! I am not a fan of brussels sprouts, but these are delicious.

Delicious! It's now one of our staples! We just mix all the sprouts with the sauce and serve. No dipping or skewers.

I'll make this soon

Great blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely confused .. Any recommendations? Appreciate it!
