Balsamic Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Grapes & Figs

 I thought I would try this new Brussel sprouts recipe for our Go Figgy Bon Appetit.  I thought it was good but my husband  isn't a Brussels fan so it wasn't a favorite part of the meal.  I had never roasted grapes before and we really liked those.


Balsamic Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Grapes  and Figs

Author Abbey Sharp (


  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups of Brussels sprouts trimmed and halved
  • 1 cup seedless red grapes
  • 8 figs halved
  • Leaves from 6 sprigs of thyme
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp aged balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup candied pecans chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Toss the Brussels sprouts, grapes and figs with the olive oil and lay on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with thyme leaves, salt and pepper.
  3. Roast for about 30-35 minutes, turning the Brussels sprouts at least once to evenly roast.
  4. Once the Brussels sprouts are caramelized, and the grapes and figs are slightly shriveled, remove from the oven, and coat with the aged balsamic vinegar.
  5. Top with the candied pecans and serve warm.
