By Earth of Maria
🔪Prep Time: 15 mins
👩🍳Cook Time: 25 mins
▢ 2 lbs Brussels sprouts
▢ 1 1/2 cups Panko breadcrumbs
▢ 1 tsp paprika
▢ 1 tsp cumin
▢ 1/2 tsp turmeric
▢ 1/2 tsp salt
▢ 3 tbsp olive oil
▢ 2 tbsp maple syrup
1Add the Brussels sprouts to a large saucepan of lightly salted water. Bring to a simmer and cook for around 10 minutes, until fully softened.
2Prepare an ice bath. When they are ready, transfer the Brussels sprouts to the ice bath for a couple of minutes, then drain and rinse them.
3Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F/180 degrees C.
4Transfer the Brussels sprouts to a flat surface, such as a chopping board or a baking tray. Smash them using the bottom of a glass.
5Mix together the breadcrumbs, paprika, cumin, turmeric and salt.
6Add the Brussels sprouts to a mixing bowl and mix together with the olive oil and maple syrup. Then, add the breading and mix once more.
7Spread out the sprouts on a large baking tray lined with parchment paper. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes, until crispy and the breadcrumbs are golden brown. Serve immediately.

I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
