Nourishing Hub Caramelized Brussels Sprout Salad

I ran into my lovely friend at the supermarket last week and when I asked her what she was having for dinner and she replied ‘Brussels sprouts – do you have a recipe’? I recalled I’d made up a recipe last season and I rattled it off off the top of my head. Here is the official version:


  • 500g Brussels sprouts (about 18 sprouts)
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons of maple syrup (100% pure)
  • 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 salad bowl of baby spinach leaves or mixed greens
  • ¾ cup of cooked brown lentils
  • ½ cup of chopped tamari almonds or macadamia nuts
  • ¾ block of feta (crumbled or chopped)


  • ½ cup of olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons of honey
  • 2 teaspoons of dijon mustard
  • 1 pinch of Himalayan rock salt


  1. Trim Brussels Sprouts and cut lengthways in half. Steam them over boiling water for about 6 minutes (they should turn bright green). Heat a large frying pan over medium/high heat and add olive oil and maple syrup. Add Brussels Sprouts cut-side down and allow them to cook for about 5 minutes – try to wait until they turn a golden brown colour before turning them. Cook for approximately 3 minutes on the other side.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients into a salad bowl and toss lightly – add Brussels Sprouts to the salad.
  3. Add dressing ingredients to a jar and shake until well combined.
  4. Drizzle dressing over the salad
