Cranberry Orange Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe on Love these brussels sprouts!

I cut the stems off of the sprouts and cut them in half. I toss them in a simple orange dressing made with fresh orange juice, orange zest, olive oil, and a little honey. Add some salt and pepper and roast away! I love when the brussels sprouts get a little burnt. The crispy pieces are my favorite:)

Cranberry orange roasted brussels sprouts are refreshing and sweet! A great side dish to any holiday meal!


1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts, rinsed
Juice of 1 large orange
2 teaspoons orange zest
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons honey or agave (agave for vegan recipe)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup dried cranberries


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Cut off the brown ends of the brussels sprouts and remove any discolored leaves. Cut the sprouts in half if they are large sprouts. If you have small sprouts you can leave them whole.

3. In a large bowl, whisk together fresh orange juice, orange zest, olive oil, and honey. Add the brussels sprouts to the bowl and toss until they are well coated. Pour them on a large baking pan and season with salt and black pepper. Roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Shake the pan from time to time to brown the sprouts evenly.

4. Put the brussels sprouts in a large bowl and add the dried cranberries. Stir and serve immediately.

    I’ve eaten brussels sprouts almost every day for the past month. I am a huge lover of them, and they’re so good this time of year. Pinned this – so pretty! Cran + orange have gotta be great too in here!

  3. Taylor @ FoodFaithFitness — November 25, 2013 @ 6:26 am

    I love these teensy tiny little cabbages! Yours are bea-yoo-tiful! Perfect for the upcoming Holiday. Plus, cranberries and orange? Yea, that’s a good idea!

  4. Erica — November 25, 2013 @ 8:33 am

    So one of my favorite local restaurants makes the most AMAZING brussels with orange. They also add soy sauce and it is a killer combination! You must try! These are so pretty!

  5. Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar — November 25, 2013 @ 8:40 am

    I love the cran-orange combo! It’s so fabulous, and definitely sounds awesome with veggies!

  6. I made a recipe just like this last week and I just love it! I sauteed mine, I’ll have to try roasting them next time. Nice recipe!

    Roasted brussels sprouts are the best and this flavour combo sounds great!

  14. Santina — November 25, 2013 @ 1:52 pm

    Do you think you could roast fresh cranberries with them? (cut in half so they don’t burst?) I wonder how roasted carrots and parsnips would taste mixed in also…

      Yes, that sounds good to me!

  15. Rachel @ Baked by Rachel — November 25, 2013 @ 2:40 pm

    Love how the cranberries pop in the photos!

  16. Jenny — November 25, 2013 @ 3:54 pm

    Can you just use Craisins as the dried cranberries or do you have any other recommendations?

    • Two Peas replied: — November 26th, 2013 @ 12:01 pm

      Yes, Craisins are perfect!

  17. marla — November 25, 2013 @ 9:01 pm

  18. Tieghan — November 25, 2013 @ 10:29 pm

    I have been eating brussels daily, but these look better than the ones I have been making! They are so pretty!

  19. Sonia — November 25, 2013 @ 10:56 pm

    I never thought about combining brussels sprouts with sweet flavors like cranberries and orange but it definitely makes sense! Thanks for sharing.

    I had a different brussels sprouts recipe planned for our Thanksgiving dinner, but I might just switch to this one now!

  23. Sharon D — November 26, 2013 @ 6:18 pm

    Can you make in advance and reheat in micro, then add the craisins.
