I know it’s weird, but Brussels sprouts are one of my absolute favorite foods. I eat them EVERY week! Not only are they super good for you, but they are also very easy to prepare. No need to fear these tiny little cabbages any longer, this recipe for how to roast Brussels sprouts will change any negative thoughts you may have had about them!
When you roast veggies, it actually can make them sweeter and tastier. If you're not a fan of Brussels sprouts, then try this method and you find your new favorite veggie side dish.
- Preheat the oven to 450°F.
- Wash Brussels sprouts and peel off any leaves that are brown or have little holes.
- Slice the very bottom part off, the part that was attached to the stalk.
- Either quarter or half the sprouts (I prefer quartered).
- Lay sprouts on a baking sheet and pour oil, salt, and pepper on top.
- Mix oil, salt, and pepper in very well. Make sure all of the sprouts are coated.
- Bake until leaves are starting to brown at the edges and the dense part of the sprout is beginning to soften. Usually about 15 minutes.
- Squeeze lemon juice on top (this gets rid of any bitter flavor that Brussels sprouts sometimes have).
- I love to serve them with blue cheese and toasted pine nuts.
