It’s maple season! So, pour maple syrup on everything!
On second thought, putting maple syrup on everything might not be such a great idea, but you might be surprised at how well it goes with brussels sprouts.
It helps cut the bitterness of the brussels sprouts and the paprika adds a little spice to the dish. The result is a simple dish with just a few ingredients that complement each other really well plus this baby is packed with more flavor than you’d imagine.
Great For A Potluck
This is a great Paleo side dish for preparing for a holiday or gathering. I have prepared this dish many times before but most recently for our Paleo Thanksgiving dinner.
However, you don’t have to wait to serve this only one day a year. It pairs well with any fall dish and because it’s slightly sweet, it’s a great way to get those vegetables served to your kids or maybe a picky adult eater. If you have little ones who don’t want to touch anything resembling a plant, they may take a bite when you tell them you’ve added one of Elf‘s favorite foods!
Just A Spoonful of Sugar
If you’re worried about the sugar content of this recipe with the maple syrup, don’t be. I used just enough to provide that awesome maple flavor, without overpowering the other ingredients. There’s enough fat and veggies in here that the sugar shouldn’t be a problem, especially since maple syrup is lower on the glycemic index than cane sugar to begin with.
