Easy Miso Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Preparation 10 min Cook Time 20 min Total Time 0:30

All it takes to transform plain roasted Brussels sprouts into something extra-special is a few tablespoons of miso magic.


  • 2 pounds Brussels sprouts
  • 2 tablespoons white miso paste
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons tamari
  • 1 tablespoon very hot water
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil (with or without hot chili)
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400° F with a rack in the center.
  • Wash and dry the Brussels sprouts. Trim off and discard a little bit of the stem end from each sprout and slice each sprout in half lengthwise. Place halved sprouts in a large bowl.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the miso paste, oil, tamari and water. Pour this mixture over the sprouts and toss to coat evenly.
  • Pour sprouts onto a baking sheet. Spread evenly to avoid crowding and turn each piece cut-side down. (If your baking sheet is smaller and the sprouts are crowded, use two pans so they actually roast instead of steaming.)
  • Roast for about 15 minutes, until nicely browned on underside. Toss with a spatula and roast 5 minutes more.
  • Wipe any remaining miso mixture out of the large mixing bowl and pour sprouts back into bowl. Drizzle sesame oil and maple syrup overtop and toss to coat evenly, then transfer to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with a little bit of freshly ground black pepper and some flaky salt if you like. Serve immediately.
