Maple-Sriracha Roasted Brussels Sprouts With Cranberry Wild Rice (Video)



  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 5 Tbsp.  extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked wild rice
  • 3 1/2 cups  vegetable stock
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 3 Tbsp.  Sriracha
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp.  Bragg Liquid Aminos or low-sodium soy sauce
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 lb.  Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup chopped raw walnuts or pecans
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tbsp.  minced fresh rosemary
  • Chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, for garnish


  • Add the onion, 2 tablespoonfuls of the olive oil, garlic, bay leaves, wild rice, vegetable stock, and cranberries to a rice cooker* and cook on the brown rice setting.
  • While the rice is cooking, preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • In a large bowl, combine the maple syrup, remaining olive oil, Sriracha, liquid aminos, and lime juice and whisk until well blended. Add the Brussels sprouts and toss until evenly coated.
  • Using a slotted spoon, transfer the Brussels sprouts to a nonstick baking sheet and spread in a single layer. Reserve the excess liquid. Bake for about 25 to 35 minutes, or until tender and browned.
  • When the rice cooker has 5 minutes left of cooking time, add the walnuts without stirring and allow the rice to finish cooking. Add the rosemary, then season with salt and pepper.
  • Serve the Brussels sprouts over the rice, garnished with a healthy drizzle of the reserved maple-Sriracha dressing and a sprinkling of parsley. 

Makes 6 to 8 servings
