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


  1. 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.
  2. Make glaze: Whisk together orange juice and miso until fully incorporated; set aside.
  3. 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.
