Maple roasted Brussels sprout

Maple roasted Brussels sprout
Meet our alphabet series ‘B for Brussels sprout’  this month.
Brussels sprout is a vegetable with quite a queer reputation..when one half of the population sneer at them, the other half looks at brilliant additions to the preparation for dinner with these little buddies.  With such varied reputation, these little bundles are enough to polarise a dinner table.
To me, they come as bite-sized cabbages which I  can steam, shred, roast or serve raw. The second best thing I like about this mini version is the fact that it doesn’t fall apart when it is roasted. liking it a bit better now?
The obnoxious reputation of this beautiful vegetable probably comes from the sulphurous taste that it takes on when it is overboiled. This may be the cause of the big divide in the palatability.

Nutritionally sound Brussels sprout

  • These long-stemmed cabbage-like plant buds are very low in calories.
  • The content of fibre is significant to a daily addition to your meal.
  • Brussels sprout is highly valued for your eyes as they have the component leutin which protects your eye from age-related degeneration.
  • With glucosinolates higher than broccoli and cabbage, it meets your necessary sulphur content and at the same time reminds you not to overboil them.
  • The chemical nature of Brussels sprout helps in reducing inflammation due to oxidative damage .
  • Along with the good content of Vit K, there are good cardiovascular system benefits too.
With good enough reasons to support the little sprout, its now time not to dismiss it as a Christmas garnish on the plate. The recipe here is the best to capture the crisp nature and tone down the sharpness. The slightly charred exterior with the deliciously soft inside was a good textural contrast. Hopefully, you will give it a chance this time and not still go by the boil until its pale scenario again.

I must admit I’m not such a huge fan of Brussel sprouts. The only time I will have some is when I stir fry them Indo Chinese style. Your recipe is tempting me to try it out mainly because of the orange zest and maple syrup.
