It is my firm belief that all vegetables are most delicious when roasted.  Roasted is pretty much the only way I like to eat brussel sprouts. Tossing halved brussel sprouts with a little olive oil, salt & pepper before roasting produces one of my favorite side dishes. So I took that idea up a notch & added some good quality Dijon mustard and pure maple syrup. These were the perfect side dish. Tonight they were served alongside an oven baked sweet potatoe stuffed with almond butter (don’t knock it till you’ve tried it) but would be delicious with chicken or salmon too.


Maple Mustard Roasted Brussel Sprouts
Serves 2

1 tsp olive oil
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbls maple syrup
16-20 brussel sprouts- halved
Salt & pepper to taste

1. Mix olive oil, mustard & maple syrup together in medium bowl
2. Toss halved brussel sprouts in mixture
3. Spread on cookie sheet (I like to put them all cut side down but I’m pretty sure that is my own weird thing & will cook fine otherwise)
4. Sprinkle with salt & pepper
5. Bake at 400° for about 20 minutes (cooking times will vary based on size of sprouts but they are done when the leaves develop a few crispy bits)
6. Enjoy!
