Your New Favorite Side Dish ~ Pistachio Date Brussels Sprouts

Fall’s got us feelin’ like experimenting with all the delish seasonal veggies! The other night Bobby and I were making dinner and we came up with the best new Brussels sprouts recipe! We paired Brussels with dates and pistachios for some added sweetness and crunch. We served it with grilled chicken first and then salmon the next night! It’s also amazing with a veggie burger! Plus, Brussels sprouts are packed with fiber to keep you satiated and contain compounds called glucosinolates that detox your beautiful bod!

We know you’re going to love this recipe just as much as we do! Bobby has been requesting it every night so it’s TIU husband approved too ;)

Pistachio Date Brussels Sprouts

Makes 4 servings


1 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. olive oil

1lb Brussels sprouts, cut into quarters

1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. maple syrup

1/2 lemon, juiced

4 dates, diced

1/4 cup pistachios, roughly chopped


1. In a large pan over medium-low heat, add 1 Tbsp. olive oil, Brussels sprouts, and salt. Sauté for 10-15 minutes. Allow the Brussels to cook for 5 more minutes without moving them so they develop a nice brown crunch!

2. In a large bowl, combine 1 tsp. olive oil, maple syrup, and lemon juice. Whisk to combine. Add diced dates, pistachios, and cooked Brussels sprouts. Toss to combine. Serve with a side salad and your favorite lean protein!

  1. What if you don’t have pistachios, can you subsitute it with pumpkin seeds or any other seed?

  2. Perfect timing for a new Brussel sprouts recipe – my 3 year old just requested Brussel sprouts for dinner tomorrow. I think these will be a hit with everyone!

  3. Looks amazing. I do have a question, why is it some recipes have the M1-5 rating and some have nothing? Makes it easier to know when to eat the the info. Thanks

  4. ok…I have resisted trying any of the Brussel sprouts recipes because growing up I DID NOT LIKE BRUSSELS SPROUTS… but today… today I tried THIS recipe! It is SOOOOOO good. No wonder Bobby asks for this side dish frequently!

  5. Tried this last night with grilled chicken on the side and it was fantastic!! Even my husband (who hates brussels sprouts) our 14 y/o liked it!

  6. Love this recipe!! To speed up the process I cooked the brussel sprouts in the air fryer; gives them an extra crunch!
