Brussels Sprouts in Yuzu Citrus Miso

Brussels Sprouts in Yuzu Citrus Miso

Yuzu citrus miso does a good job of softening the bitterness of brussels sprouts and bringing out the flavor. This is a fulfilling dish that can be easily made.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Brussels sprouts
10 to 12
to taste
Yuzu Miso Sauce
Brussels sprouts boiling water stock
2 tablespoons
Yuzu miso
2 tablespoons


1. Remove the dirty outer layer and the base of the root of the brussels sprouts. Make about 5 mm cross cut into the roots, then boil in salted water.
2. Once the brussels sprouts have finished boiling, submerge in cold water to stop from losing color and prevent overcooking. (Keep 2 tablespoons of the water you used to boil.)
3. Toss the brussels sprouts water with the yuzu miso to create the yuzu miso sauce. Set aside.
4. Cut the brussels sprouts into half if you like, and while still warm, mix in with the mixture created in Step 3. Once the flavor has settled, it's finished.

Story Behind this Recipe

I bought a lot of brussels sprouts.
I love the unique bitterness and the summer fragrance. I thought the sweetness of yuzu miso would go well with them, so I tried it and came up with a slightly different taste than usual.
