Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pumpkin Seeds

From: Whole Foods online recipe box

**I LOVE brussels sprouts but my family..not so much!  These were a hit with everyone except my teenage son.  I think he didn't even give them a chance.  They are delicious!

2 pounds brussels sprouts (The bag at Costco is 2 pounds)
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp fine sea salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
2 tbsp maple syrup
1/4 cup raw green pumpkin seeds (I buy these at Trader Joe's)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Wash and cut the brussels sprouts in half or quarters.  Put in a large bowl and toss with olive oil, salt and pepper.  Place on a rimmed baking sheet.  Roast, stirring once, until sprouts are browned and just tender when pierced at the base with a paring knife, about 25 minutes.  After roasting, place back in bowl and drizzle with maple syrup.  Toss the pumpkin seeds in and stir until sprouts are lightly coated with syrup and seeds.  Serve immediately.

Serves 5-6
