Maple-Roasted Vegetables

Though this recipe calls for Brussels sprouts and carrots, the maple-olive-oil mixture is really quite delicious drizzled over squash, sweet potatoes, or even green beans. If you’d like to cut down on dishwashing, line the baking sheet with foil and toss the vegetables with the maple syrup right on the sheet. Try making a big batch of the maple mixture and stashing it in the refrigerator: it will do triple duty as a salad dressing and a glaze for meat. If you do stick with Brussels sprouts and carrots, we recommend dishing up the side with a hefty pork chop and a glass of chilled white wine.
