1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Arrange baguette slices in single layer on baking sheet; bake, turning halfway through, for 5 to 7 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Let cool completely.
2. Meanwhile, whisk together canola oil, mustard, thyme, garlic, salt, pepper and hot pepper flakes; toss with Brussels sprouts until well coated. Spread in even layer on parchment paper–lined baking sheet; roast for about 15 minutes or until tender and browned around edges. Let cool slightly.
3. Gently fold 3 tbsp (45 mL) dried cranberries into ricotta; spread over toasted baguette slices. Top with roasted Brussels sprouts. Garnish with remaining dried cranberries and pine nuts. Drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Serve immediately.
Tip: For added richness and a touch of smoky flavour, chop two slices of thick-cut bacon and roast along with the Brussels sprouts.
