Honey-Miso Brussels Sprouts

brussels-2Oh, Brussels sprouts. How delicious you are when cooked properly.  Fun fact: these little green bulbs, often referred to as tiny cabbages, are exactly tiny cabbages that grow vertically.  Apparently, if you cut a full-size cabbage off its stem, many tiny heads resembling Brussels sprouts will often grow where the standard cabbage once was.  Who knew?

This is such a quick and satisfying side dish. The light and sweet flavour of this dressing goes perfectly with the heartiness of that dish, but I imagine these would be great with a stir fry or rice bowl as well.  I’d love to hear what you plan to pair them with.

Honey-Miso Brussels Sprouts

You’ll need:

  • 2 cups Brussels sprouts, stems trimmed and sliced lengthwise
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbls miso paste
  • 2 tbls coconut oil
  • 1 tbls honey
  • 1 tsp finely chopped thyme

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Melt coconut oil and remove from heat.  Whisk in miso paste, honey and thyme.

brussels-2Make sure your Brussels sprouts are dry and toss them in a large bowl with miso mixture.

Arrange sprouts cut-side down on a parchment-lined baking sheet.  Season with salt and pepper.

Roast for 10-15 min. or until Brussels sprouts beginning to caramelize.
