Maple Brussels Sprouts with Tempeh Bacon Recipe

While Brussels sprouts may not seem like a fan favorite, the crispy texture and complementary flavors will encourage anyone to give them a shot.

You either love Brussels sprouts or you hate them, but even if it’s the latter, these crispy, smoky, sweet, and salty morsels will convert you to the other side. Sometimes I find getting the ratio of crisp outside to perfectly cooked inside difficult, and quartering the sprouts does the trick. Tempeh “bacon,” made with a fermented wheat protein, doesn’t need to feel like the poor stepsibling to the “real thing” — I think it adds a distinctive personality all its own.
