- 1 pound Brussels sprouts
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 1 scoop Grown American™ Superfood
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- Pinch cayenne
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
Prepare the Brussels sprouts by washing them, peeling off any outer brown or yellow leaves, cutting off the stem, and slicing in half vertically. In a medium bowl combine olive oil, balsamic vinegar, Grown American™ Superfood, salt, pepper, and cayenne. Add Brussels sprouts and toss to coat in the oil mixture. Place Brussels sprouts in one layer on the prepared sheet pan and bake for 30 to 40 minutes stirring every 10 minutes to insure even browning. Drizzle on maple syrup and continue to bake for 15 to 20 minutes more until Brussels sprouts are fork tender. Remove from oven and cool for a few minutes before serving.
Variations: When the Brussels sprouts are done, stir in ¼ to ⅓ cup toasted hazelnuts or pecans.
For a festive touch, stir in ¼ cup dried cranberries and ¼ cup toasted nuts.
As soon as the Brussels sprouts come out of the oven, toss in 1 to 2 tablespoons orange juice, and 1 to 2 teaspoons orange zest.
Toss in 2 slices diced or crumbled cooked bacon as soon you remove the Brussels sprouts from the oven.
Note: Be sure to cook the Brussels sprouts until they are very tender. Undercooked Brussels sprouts can be a bit bitter.
