Roast Brussels Sprouts and Parsnips with Maple-Soy Glaze
- 2 pounds Brussels sprouts, ends trimmed, halved
- 6 Tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
- Pinch coarse salt
- Several grinds black pepper
- 2 Tablespoons mild or sweet miso
- 1 Tablespoon maple syrup
- 3 Tablespoons cider vinegar
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a large bowl, toss the Brussels sprouts with 3 tablespoons of oil and sprinkle with a pinch of coarse salt and a few grinds of pepper. Arrange cut side down on a baking sheet spreading them out so they don’t touch. Roast the Brussels sprouts until tender and browned all over, about 15 to 20 minutes.
In a small bowl, whisk together the miso, syrup, and vinegar and then whisk in the remaining oil.
Toss the Brussels sprouts with just enough of the maple-soy mixture to lightly coat. Serve warm or at room temperature.
