1tspvegan Worcestershire sauce(or use soy sauce, optional)
To prepare the maple-mustard sauce:
Whisk together all of the ingredients in a bowl, and adjust seasonings to taste.
To blanch the Brussels sprouts:
Prepare a bowl of ice water, and bring a pot of water to a boil.
Once the water is boiling, add the Brussels sprouts. Leave them in the water until they turn bright green. This took about 5 minutes for me but can vary depending on the size of your Brussels sprouts. Make sure not to overcook them.
Remove the sprouts from the pot and transfer them immediately into the ice water to stop the cooking process.
Set the sprouts in a colander to drain, or gently pat them dry with paper towels. You want them to be as dry as possible before you batter them.
For beer-battering and frying the Brussels sprouts:
Add about 2 inches of oil in a large, heavy pan on the stovetop, and heat the oil until over medium heat until hot - about 365 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix together the flours, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Pour in the beer and stir just until combined. Do not over-mix. If the batter seems too thin to coat the Brussels sprouts, add a little more flour as needed.
Add the Brussels sprouts to the batter (I do this in a few batches) and coat them. Then transfer them to the hot oil, making sure to leave plenty of space between them and not crowd the pan (otherwise, they'll come out greasy and not crispy).
Cook for 3-5 minutes, or until crispy and golden brown. Use tongs or a heat-safe slotted spoon to transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels. (Optional) sprinkle the beer-battered Brussels sprouts with coarse salt immediately after they come out of the fryer.
I haven't tried it, but gluten-free all-purpose flour would probably work. Same goes for gluten-free beer.
