Although these tend to be a favorite around the holidays since they are a cool season crop, they can be enjoyed year round. This is especially true in California, the number one producer of sprouts in the US. Parents-- kids love these, too with their touch of maple sweetness. For best results, use high quality pure maple syrup and olive oil. I love Noble Tonic 01: Tuthilltown Bourbon Barrel Matured Maple Syrup and Essential Living Foods Organic Olive Oil. *Use olive oil for light cooking and extra virgin olive oil for dressing your food, as it cannot handle heat as well.
4 cups brussels sprouts cut in half
1/4 cup white miso
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tbsp olive oil
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
Pre-heat oven to 375*F
Toss sprouts with the oil, salt and pepper until evenly coated.
Put sprouts in oven. Cook for 20 mins until just slightly browned.
Whisk together the miso & maple syrup
After the sprouts have been cooking 20 mins, remove them from oven, let cool for a bit and put into a bowl.
Pour maple-miso dressing on sprouts and toss until evenly coated and return them to the pan.
Cook for an additional 10 mins or so (depending on how crispy you like them--optional to switch to broil)
Remove from oven
