Roasted Brussels Sprouts


A lot of people don't like Brussels Sprouts...or hate...or despise them.  If you're one of those people I recommend trying them roasted before writing them off all together.  I have to admit I don't really love this veggie steamed or boiled either.  As I mentioned in my Roasted Broccoli with Garlic and Lemon recipe, roasting vegetables brings out their natural sweetness.  This is a simple recipe that may make you think twice about these little guys. 

Ingredients:

-1 lb. of Brussels Sprouts
-2 Tbsp olive oil
-sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste



Rinse your Brussels sprouts in water and tear off any brown outer leaves.  Chop off the ends if they're brown and half each sprout.



Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper.  Don't be shy on the salt...it's needed in this dish. Spread evenly on a baking sheet. Pop in the oven at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes until golden and crunchy.  You may want to toss them halfway through roasting.


Pull them out and try your new favorite vegetable! ;)
