Ingredients

  • 2  Pounds  Brussels sprouts
  • 2  Tablespoons  olive oil
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  sea salt
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  black pepper
  • 2  Tablespoons  maple syrup
  • 1/4  Cup  raw green pumpkin seeds

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Peel off any yellowed or wilted leaves from the outside of Brussels sprouts and trim bottoms. Halve any that are the size of walnuts or larger. Place on a rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss until coated. Roast, stirring once or twice, until sprouts are browned and just tender when pierced at the base with a paring knife, about 25 minutes. Drizzle with maple syrup and toss with pumpkin seeds. Roast 5 more minutes until pumpkin seeds are just toasted.

Maple Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Maple Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
