Maple Miso Glazed Brussels Sprouts

by jenny sansouci on March 16, 2012

Last week, I was in sunny Los Angeles, and I had the extremely exciting opportunity to eat at Cafe Gratitude (multiple times). I had been dreaming of going there, and my dream came true. My favorite dish, by far, was the “I Am Ecstatic” maple-miso glazed brussels sprouts. I seriously was ecstatic while eating them, and knew I’d have to come home and make them immediately!

I’m not sure exactly how Gratitude does it to make their sprouts so tasty, but my version came pretty darn close! Check it:

Maple-Miso Glazed Brussels Sprouts

  • 2 cups brussels sprouts
  • 1/4 cup white miso
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • sprinkle of sea salt
  • sprinkle of black pepper

Pre-heat oven to 375.

Either cut sprouts in half or keep them whole – whatever you like!

Toss sprouts with the olive oil, salt and pepper until evenly coated.

Put sprouts in oven. Cook for 20 mins until just slightly browned.


Whisk together the miso & maple syrup.

After the sprouts have been cooking 20 mins, remove them from oven and drizzle maple-miso dressing evenly on all sprouts.

Cook for an additional 10 mins.

Remove from oven.

Eat! Be grateful! And when you’re in LA, make sure to visit Cafe Gratitude!!!

Yay! Cafe Gratitude! So glad you were able to make it there (several times). Just remember your pal here can make you anything and everything off that menu if we’re ever in a place with a kitchen together =) But from the looks of things, you can too!

Thanks for reverse-engineering this one! I love them so much and have not been able to recreate them. I hadn’t thought to add the dressing at the end and pop them back in the oven. On of the servers brought out the master recipe book and said there dressing is maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, miso, tahini and olive oil. The tahini gives that extra punch. Cheers!

Never in my life did I think I would love Brussels Sprouts but man, are these tasty! I have never had a bad meal there, but these are just Heaven! Thanks for sharing this recipe with us!
