Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts

March April 2014

From Julie Van Rosendaal

Brussels sprouts take on a deliciously charred flavour when roasted. You can also cook them directly on a hot grill. Finish them with a drizzle of maple syrup and a splash of balsamic vinegar.

2-3 c. trimmed, halved Brussels sprouts

2 T. olive or canola oil

salt and freshly ground black pepper

3 T. maple or birch syrup

1 T. balsamic vinegar

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Toss the Brussels sprouts in oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spread out on a rimmed baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes, or until tender and starting to char on the edges. Transfer to a bowl and toss with maple or birch syrup and balsamic vinegar while they’re still warm. Serve immediately. Serves 4.
