Makes 8 servings

2 pounds Brussels sprouts, ends trimmed, and sliced in half lengthwise

2 tablespoons honey or agave nectar

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice

1 teaspoon Kosher salt

freshly ground pepper to taste

Honey and lime add a punch of extra flavor to this classic Thanksgiving vegetable, ensuring that everyone will want to eat their Brussels sprouts—even the kids. Make-ahead tip: Trim and slice the sprouts up to two days before the big day.


1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. Place the Brussels sprouts in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, honey, and lime juice. Pour over the sprouts. Toss with the salt and pepper.

3. Divide the sprouts between the two baking sheets. Roast until tender and browned, about 30-35 minutes.
