I was thrilled when my friend, food and lifestyle expert Chadwick Boyd, offered to share a recipe here at kimsunee.com. I’ve cooked and eaten with Chadwick from NYC to Atlanta and love his enthusiasm for good food–whether it’s Southern fried chicken or a slow-simmered osso bucco. He’s also a champion for non-meat goodness; he’s currently working on a much-anticipated cookbook, “Entertaining with Vegetables,” to be published in 2017.
Charred Brussels Sprouts with Orange Miso Glaze
Yield: 4 to 6 | Total time: 15 min
This recipe features a brilliant way to add umami and brightness to the often underloved Brussels sprout. Add some orange zest and a fresh squeeze of juice just before serving.

- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 2 pounds Brussels sprouts, washed and cut in half (quartered if larger)
- 11/2 tablespoons white miso
- Juice of 1 large orange
- 1 crisp pear, preferably d'Anjou, cored and sliced 1/8"– 1/4" thick
- Kosher salt, to taste
- Heat a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and let heat to a slight smoke (just a minute or so). Add garlic and stir, 1 to 2 minutes, just until it begins to brown, being careful not to burn. Toss in Brussels sprouts and cook 5 to 7 minutes; they should begin to char on the edges. Use a wooden spoon to toss every few minutes so the sprouts brown evenly. Cook another few minutes or until they are slightly soft on the outside and a little crunchy in the center.
- Make glaze: Whisk together orange juice and miso until fully incorporated; set aside.
- Add pear to Brussels sprouts. Pour orange-miso glaze over sprouts and toss 1-2 minutes, until heated through. Season with Kosher salt to taste. Serve warm or at room temperature.
