Maple Miso Brussels Sprouts
Ingredients for 4 servings
- 1 lb Brussels sprouts, washed and halved
- 5 tablespoons maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce or Tamari
- 2 tablespoons white miso
- 2 cloves garlic
- juice from 1/2 lime (or 1 tbsp rice vinegar)
- 1 tablespoon (or more) Sriracha
- green onion
- red chili flakes
Mix together the ingredients for the sauce and season to taste with individual ingredients until it is to your liking. Be careful of being too heavy-handed with the maple syrup as it is calorie dense and pure sugar.
Set a carbon steel pan on medium high heat and once hot, spray with oil. Add the Brussels sprouts and try as much as possible to place them cut side down on the pan so that part becomes seared. Doing this also helps soften them faster since a larger part is touching the pan.
Once a deep sear marks appears on them, about 3 – 5 minutes, increase heat to HIGH then start to stir. Pour in about half of of the sauce and stir until thickens and caramelizes, about 4 – 6 minutes. Add more as needed.
Garnish with red chili flakes and green onion. Save any sauce for another recipe since it is GREAT on meats and seafood as well! This is a great side dish for any meals.
