  • 2 pounds brussels sprouts
  • 2 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 pitted and chopped medjool dates + about 1/3 cup of water to soften
  • 3 tablespoons reserved soaking water
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper


  • Preheat oven to 425° F.
  • Place chopped dates into a small bowl and add just enough water to cover them. Soak for about 10-20 minutes to soften the date pieces. Remove date pieces from water using a slotted spoon and reserve the soaking water.
  • Add olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, date pieces, 3 Tablespoons reserved water, sea salt, and pepper into a blender and blend until smooth. You can also use an immersion blender for this step.
  • Trim stems and remove any wilted outer leaves from brussels sprouts. Chop brussels sprouts in half and place in a bowl. Pour glaze over sprouts and toss to cover. Spread sprouts in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet or directly on a baking stone. Make sure they’re in a single layer — you may need two baking sheets.
  • Roast for about 20-25 minutes, stirring once half way through roasting. They’re done when golden brown and crisp-tender. Remove from oven and serve hot.
