Easy Roasted Brussel Sprouts

So easy.  So good.  Sweet-savory and healthy to boot!  Also, brussels keep for a while if you don't get around to roasting them straightaway.  :D

I steamed these in my super-awesome Tatung steamer, but if you don't have one you can just as easily nuke 'em.  Or jerry-rig a steamer with a handful of chopsticks and a covered wok :D

If I made these again I would take the sprouts off the stalk; it makes it easier to cover them evenly with FLAVOR.

Materials & Method:

Steam the sprouts for ~10 minutes

In the meantime, whisk together:
3 Tbsp Maple Syrup
1 Tbsp Oil
 Pro-Tip: Mix it in a liquid measuring cup 'cause the spout makes it easier to pour.  4 Tbsp is a quarter cup, so just eyeball it :D
Drizzle sprouts with mixture.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Roast at 350F for 45 min.
