Easy, Quick, Spicy and Tangy. Just a few ingredients and what a nice unique side dish. I know ... not everyone loves those little cabbages. Personally, I love them. This gives this a little sweet glaze with a bit of a tang, but the process is so easy just roasting them. NO pans to clean up which always scores points with me.
Ok, I know... Yuck! I don't know many people who actually like brussel sprouts, but I guarantee you that even the pickiest of eaters will enjoy these. They are both savory and sweet. Reminds me of a sweet coleslaw flavor.
Brusssels Sprouts are one of my favorite vegetables and I am always looking for new ways to prepare them. These only need a minimum attention before serving, and taste wonderful with my recipe for slow cooked Hoisin Pork Roast.
When cooked properly Brussels Sprouts have a sweet and nutty flavor with a slight hint of bitterness. This quick and easy recipe offsets that slight bitterness with a sweet maple syrup pan sauce. The recipe can be easily halved. I adapted this from Julie Taras of Little Giant restaurant in New York City.
Brussels Sprouts sometimes get a bum wrap. If cooked correctly they have a lovely nutty flavor; Undercooking can make them bitter, overcooking makes them mushy. Roasting is a simple way to prepare them and gives them a nice crispy texture.
