In this post, you’ll find the roasted Brussels sprouts with maple syrup and soy sauce recipe that my son and I created together. He wanted to make sweet and salty Brussels sprouts for dinner, so we created this healthy dinner recipe together.
Family Time in the Kitchen: Creating Recipes with My Son
Over the last few years, my younger son has developed an interest in cooking. He goes to my parent’s house once a week and cooks dinner with my mom. On his own, he creates salad dressings and marinades. At just 10 years old, his talent is pretty impressive.
The last few months have been busy with my teaching and tutoring and the kids’ after school activities. We haven’t been eating as healthy as I would like. Many nights, we get home late and eat whatever leftovers or quick foods we can. When we went to H-E-B the other night, I picked up a bag of pre-washed, trimmed Brussels sprouts. When my son saw the bag, he was excited. Yes, he loves Brussels sprouts.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Maple Syrup and Soy Sauce Recipe Created by Mom and Son
Last night, when I got home from tutoring, we worked together to come up with a roasted Brussels sprouts recipe. When I asked what we should use for seasoning, Noah suggested making roasted Brussels sprouts with maple syrup and soy sauce. He wanted to make a sweet and savory Brussels sprouts dish.
In a bowl, we mixed the Brussels sprouts with olive oil, maple syrup, and soy sauce. After giving it a taste, we put the Brussels sprouts in our small Cuisinart toaster oven set at 400 degrees.
After 28 minutes, they were ready to come out. Then, we gave them a try. We decided the Brussels sprouts needed just a little more salt. So, I sprinkled them with some Kosher salt, and voila! Between the two of us, we finished every last sprout.
Here is the roasted Brussels sprouts recipe created by mom and son. We hope you like it as much as we did.
