As a registered dietitian nutritionist, I love adding unique flavor to veggies to make them even more appealing.

 

I've been in the mood for Brussels sprouts lately, and I've also been playing around with cooking with Welch's 100% Grape Juice. So I thought that the two ingredients would be fun to combine.

 

Did you know that Welch's grape juice is made with Concord grapes? These grapes contain powerhouse nutrients called polyphenols and help keep your heart healthy by promoting healthy circulation. 

 

Because Concord grapes are only available fresh for a short time every fall, the grape juice is a great way to take in the nutrient-rich fruit. Each cup of the grape juice provides two servings of fruit.

How to Make Grape Honey Brussels Sprouts

 

Are you familiar with eating Brussels sprouts?

 

Maybe your go-to has been Brussels sprouts with balsamic vinegar, or maybe you add sweetness for a honey and balsamic vinegar sauce combo. Or maybe you go the longer route and make oven roasted Brussels on a baking sheet pan.

 

I mean, these options are no doubt delicious. But I want you to try something new! And this recipe is a lot faster than roasting sprouts or even making roasted frozen Brussels sprouts. I'm all about saving time in the kitchen.

 

To make this healthy Brussel sprouts recipe, I decided to make a delicious glaze with the grape juice. I first diced and cooked onion.

 

Then I added grape juice, as well as corn starch to thicken the mixture, and a little honey to sweeten and thicken it.

 

The juice is a great way to provide sweetness without adding sugar (and with the amount of honey I used in the glaze, you take in just 3/4 teaspoon added sugar per serving). 

 

Once I finished cooking the glaze, I mixed it with the Brussels sprouts in a large bowl. Make sure you toss to coat really well.

 

And ta-dah! I had a honey grape frozen Brussel sprouts recipe. If you want, you can add a dash of kosher salt and pepper. But you don't have to.

 

Then I ate a bunch of Brussels sprouts. How could I resist? I mean, this dish is pretty delicious!

 

Because it's game-day season, I thought it would also be fun to give an option for serving the healthy Brussels sprouts recipe as finger-food appetizers. Simply skewer each Brussels sprout with a toothpick.

 

Making this platter took seconds, and your guests are sure to be appreciate a healthy app like this one.
