Brussel Sprouts with Orange-Maple Butter

Brussel sprouts aren’t really sprouts but rather mini members of the cabbage family, which can help reduce cancer risk.  This version tastes almost as good as dessert.

1½  Tbsp maple syrup

1 Tbsp unsalted butter

½ tsp grated orange peel

¼ tsp salt

2. Combine maple syrup and butter in small microwaveable dish.  Cover with plastic wrap.  Microwave on high 40 seconds, or until butter is just melted.  Stir in orange peel, salt, and pepper.  Toss with hot brussel sprouts.
