These orange miso roasted vegetables are glazed with garlic, orange and miso. A delicious way to actually enjoy your brussel sprouts!



Vegetable Prep

  • 7 brussel sprouts, halved
  • 1 cup butternut squash, cubed into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 shallot, roughly chopped
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • Pinch of Chinese Five Spice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Miso Orange Glaze

  • Juice of one medium sized orange
  • 1 tbsp tamari or gluten free soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp yellow or white miso paste
  • Pinch of ginger powder
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced


  1. Preheat oven to 375F and arrange vegetables on a lined baking sheet so that they are not laying overtop each other.
  2. Drizzle olive oil and maple syrup overtop then sprinkle with five spice, salt and pepper. With your hands, toss vegetables to evenly coat.
  3. Place baking tray in the oven for 20 minutes.
  4. While vegetables are cooking, combine orange juice, tamari, maple syrup, cornstarch, miso paste, and ginger in a bowl. With a fork, carefully whisk to ensure that there are no lumps in the sauce then add in minced garlic.
  5. Once vegetables are done cooking, remove from the oven and drizzle vegetables with sauce, gently tossing with a spatula to coat in sauce. Feel free to do this step on the baking tray or in a bowl to make sure all vegetables are coated.
  6. Place vegetables back into the oven to cook for an extra 5 minutes, then serve as desired.


No Chinese five spice on hand? Feel free to sub out for a tiny pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg.

Don’t overcrowd the pan. If vegetables are laying on top of each other they will not caramelize properly and might get mushy. Give your veggies a little breathing room when roasting.

Oil helps to brown your vegetables more naturally. If you wish to skip the oil, note that your vegetables might look dried out. To help avoid that, keep your veggies somewhat moist using things like soy sauce and maple syrup. These two ingredients can help brown and caramelize your vegetables a little more evenly.

Make sure to cut most of your vegetables to about the same size. The more evenly cut your vegetables are, the more evenly your vegetables will cook.

These vegetables are perfect as a side, but I also like to top them over some salad greens and sprinkle some roasted chickpeas over top.
