Miso-roasted Brussels Sprouts

Serves 6

30 minutes or fewer

There’s no thawing involved in this easy, Asian-inspired vegetable roast. If you don’t have sriracha sauce in your pantry, season the miso coating with a few drops of your favorite hot sauce.
  • 3 tsp. toasted sesame oil, divided
  • 3 tsp. rice vinegar, divided
  • 2 tsp. miso paste
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (1 tsp.)
  • ½ tsp. sriracha chile sauce
  • 1 16-oz. bag frozen Brussels sprouts
  • 2 tsp. toasted sesame seeds

1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Whisk together 2 tsp. sesame oil, 2 tsp. rice vinegar, miso paste, garlic, and sriracha sauce in bowl. Add Brussels sprouts, and toss to coat.
2. Spread Brussels sprouts on baking sheet, and roast 20 minutes, or until coating looks dry, tossing every
10 minutes. Transfer to bowl, and stir in remaining 1 tsp. sesame oil and 1 tsp. rice vinegar and sesame seeds. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

I have been making this recipe for years, still love it. I decrease the oil to 1tsp, add extra garlic, and use fresh vs frozen brussels. It is also good as a raw salad - I "shred" the brussels using a food processor, mandolin, or finely cut with a knife, then double or triple the marinade, toss and serve - really good!

Awesome recipe! I used "miso easy" original, which is easy to get in Hawaii.

This is a *great* recipe. I've made it so many times now. I use red miso, but I don't know how much that matters.

What kind of miso do I use? There are a bunch of different types.

I love this recipe! I add additional garlic cloves and I use fresh brussel sprouts versus frozen...just a personal preference. And I too use red miso, cause it's what I have on hand.
