When I was 12, I made my mom promise she would never tell my friends who much I loved brussel sprouts. I knew kids were supposed to hate them, but dang, roasted with a little maple syrup, there is nothing better (in the veggie world, at least). So, now I shout my love of brussel sprouts from the roof top. “Brussel sprouts, I love you!”
- 1 lb brussel sprouts
- 1-2 TBSP olive oil
- salt and pepper
- 1 TBSP maple syrup
- Preheat oven to 450°. Trim ends of brussel sprouts and cut in ½ or ¼ depending on the size of the brussel sprout.
- Drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat.
- Roast for 10-20 minutes (tossing a few times throughout), until sprouts are browned.
- Remove from oven and toss with maple syrup.
