Maple-Mustard Brussels Sprouts

Maple-Mustard Brussels Sprouts
serves 2-3

Roasted Brussels sprouts are great on their own, but the addition of sweet maple syrup and pungent grainy mustard makes them perfectly balanced.  Be sure to turn your oven up high and use a high-heat appropriate oil--like grapeseed or avocado--to get them to crispy perfection.

1 lb Brussels sprouts, cut in half
1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
1 tablespoon maple syrup
2 teaspoons grainy mustard
generous sprinkle of salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 450.  On a parchment-lined sheet tray, toss brussels sprouts with oil, maple syrup and mustard and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Roast for 20 minutes, tossing once or twice, until browned and crispy.
