Honey Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Lemon Zest 🍋


  • Brussel Spouts
  • The zest of one lemon
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 red wine vinegar
  • 1 generous pinch of chilli flakes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 25 grams of butter


  1. Half the Brussel Sprouts and toss in olive oil with salt and pepper, until evenly coated.
  2. place cut-side down on a grease-proof oven tray and roast at 200° for 20-25 minutes, until brown and slightly chared.
  3. Meanwhile, bring honey to a simmer in a small saucepan over a medium heat. Keep stirring until honey is a deep amber colour, but not burnt.
  4. Remove from heat and add vinegar and chilli flakes. Whisk until sauce is smooth (it may bubble up quite aggressively when you add the vinegar).
  5. Add butter, a pinch of salt and the lemon zest while whisking constantly, until glaze is glossy, bubbling, and slightly thickened, 3–4 minutes.
  6. Add the roasted brussel sprouts to the glaze and stir around until they are hot. Serve immediately.
  7. Enjoy.
