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.

Cook time: 9 minutes
1 pkg (10 oz) fresh brussel sprouts halved lengthwise
1½ Tbsp maple syrup
1 Tbsp unsalted butter
