Cook time 30 minutes
Servings 4

1 Spanish onion, cut into wedges
50g butter
2 tbsp white miso paste
1½ tsp honey

Roasted Miso Brussels Sprouts


Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Melt the butter on a medium to low heat in a small saucepan until it becomes foamy. Continue cooking for a further 1-3 minutes or until the bubbles subside, the milk solids at the bottom turn brown and a wonderful nutty aroma is present. Remove from the heat and cool slightly before whisking in the miso, honey and soy sauce.

Arrange the Brussels sprouts and onions in a roasting tray. Pour ½ of the butter over the vegetables and with your hand toss everything together. Roast for 15-20 minutes.

Remove from the oven and toss around on the tray. Add the pieces of pear and drizzle over the remainder of the butter and roast for a further 5-10 minutes or until the sprouts are caramelised and tender.
