I love Brussels sprouts cooked any way you can cook them. But this is my favorite
recipe for them. I know it probably sounds strange to combine a sweet maple syrup
with a green vegetable but wait until you try it! Oh my goodness! It is the perfect
combination! And for a kick try a little cayenne pepper to wake things up a bit!
Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts
2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved lengthwise
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
sprinkling of sea salt or any coarse salt
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Toss sprouts with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
Spread the sprouts on the baking sheet and roast for about 20 minutes or until
sprouts caramelize and are brown or golden in spots. Stir about half way through
the cooking time so they are evenly roasted. You can use a knife to piece the center
and check for tenderness.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine maple syrup and cayenne pepper if using.
Drizzle sprouts with maple syrup mixture, stir to coat, and roast 1 more minute.
