“I love this snack for many reasons,” says Amy Gorin, M.S., R.D.N., a nutrition partner for Welch’s. “It combines Brussels sprouts and onions with a glaze of 100% grape juice made with Concord grapes, honey, and corn starch. The recipe is a good source of protein, providing 6g per serving. You also get heart-helping benefits from the 100% grape juice, which delivers natural plant nutrients called polyphenols to help promote healthy circulation.”

Prep time

5 min.

Cook time

15 min.

  • 1/2 large yellow onion, diced
  • 20 oz frozen Brussels sprouts
  • 1 cup Welch's 100% Grape Juice
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 Tbsp honey
Heat 1/4 cup water in a small saucepan over medium high heat.
Add onion, and cook until translucent and most of the water is absorbed, (3-4 minutes); stir occasionally.
Add grape juice, cornstarch, and honey to the onions. Bring to a boil and stir frequently as mixture thickens (3-5 minutes).
Meanwhile, cook Brussels sprouts according to package directions in a medium saucepan, using as little water as possible. Once cooked, drain any remaining water (if any) and toss with grape glaze. Serve immediately.
