Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Once Brigham posted about brussel sprouts and so we tried the recipe from Gourmet. I wanted to make the recipe today but there are a few issues: 1) making the recipe vegetarian (no fish sauce) 2) getting rice krispies...we usually don't have them in the house and I always forget to buy some 3) lack of the other ingredients (including mint and a fresh chili) and 4)today I have a really stuffed nose and I can't taste or smell anything. So I was completely dependent on my husband to confirm that these really tasted okay.

So here's the modified version that I couldn't taste or smell but apparently was okay.

1 pound little Brussel sprouts, trimmed and cut in half
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 Tablespoons chopped cilantro (sorry cilantro haters)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon shichimi togarashi (Japanese seven-spice blend)
Hot sauce as desired

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wash and prepare the Brussel sprouts and place them in a shallow baking dish.

Brush with vegetable oil and bake until the sprouts are roasted, about 25 minutes.

While the sprouts are baking, prepare the sauce. Mix the remaining ingredients in a bowl and mix together.

When the sprouts are cooked, remove them from the oven and place them in a shallow bowl. Mix with the dressing and serve.
