Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts

I’m not the best speller. In the past week I’ve learned three different words I’ve been spelling wrong all along. The first was “forcable” instead of forcible. That one could have gone either way, right? Another was “judgement” for judgment. I’m still left wondering what happened to that missing e. And then there’s “brussel sprouts”; to be fair, I don’t know anyone who’s ever taken time to pronounce that extra s.

It’s a good thing I’m better at preparing brussels sprouts than spelling them. They can seem intimidating and bland at first but with the right seasoning you’ll have no problem finishing a plateful.

If you don’t have maple syrup, use something like honey to add the sweetness.

    Actually, we do tend to spell it as “judgement” in Australia. However, you’re definitely wrong on the other ones :P But hey, who cares, if you keep creating deliciousness?

    I love brussels sprouts but never had them with maple syrup. I always add brussels sprouts into my fish curry. Will try them soon. Thanks for sharing.
