Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts

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. 
Serve hot.
