Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Miso and Lemon

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Miso and Lemon

Dinner planning can often be a chore in itself, and side dishes are sometimes the piece of the puzzle that can be rather elusive — strange as that sounds when a side can be something as easy as steamed or roasted vegetables with minimal seasonings, a simple salad, or an easy rice dish, to name just a few common approaches to fill out a meal. But depending on the meal you are planning, it can be enjoyable to dress up sides for something that's a bit more special. And when it is easy, such as this recipe for roasted Brussels sprouts, then all the better, especially if the seasonings complement the other components of the meal.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Miso and Lemon

Tossed with white miso, lemon juice and just a few simple hot spices, the Brussels sprouts are roasted to a tender golden brown, just perfect for serving on the side with any meal that's looking for some bold, spicy and colorful flavors to add. If you like Brussels sprouts as much as I do, this will be a recipe you'll be turning to again and again.
