Wild Rice & Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts Mix

Wild Rice & Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts Mix


* Optional Substitution Note


  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked wild rice (colorful mix of long grain brown rice, wild rice, red rice, black rice)
    • SUBSTITUTES: brown rice or farro
  • 1lb Brussels sprouts, halved or quartered
  • 1/2 medium sweet onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (or more/less to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper (or more/less to taste)
  • 3 tablespoons (dark) maple syrup
  • 1 cup chopped pecan
  • 1/2 cup naturally dried cranberries
  • Optional garnish
    • chopped parsley


Step 1

Cook wild rice according to the instructions provided on the package. Once finished cooking fluff with a fork and set aside.

Step 2

Set oven to 400F/204C.

Step 3

On a large baking tray, toss Brussels sprouts and onions in oil, sea salt & pepper.  Spread  them out as much as possible, leaving as much room between the veggies as possible.  If needed, cook in batches or use 2 baking trays.

Step 4

Roast for 25 – 30 minutes, stirring halfway through to encourage even cooking and browning.  After 20 minutes has passed, stir in the maple syrup among the vegetables, the bake for the remaining time.  Pro-tip: if you want crispier edges or more color, broil for the final 2 – 3 minutes but monitor to prevent burning.

Step 5

In a large mixing bowl, add the fluffed rice, maple roasted veggies, pecans and cranberries.

Step 6

Toss together and enjoy!

About Kevin - author


Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
