Brussels Sprouts Aren’t That Scary

We all know how healthy green veggies are, but how much spinach and green beans can one person eat? So I’ve moved on to Brussels Sprouts. Yeah, you heard me right.

I used to think Brussels sprouts weren’t for the faint of heart because they were bitter and odd looking. I just didn’t know how to cook them. Good news, I have discovered the world of roasting. And roasting, my cooking challenged friends, is the easiest thing you can do in the kitchen. Give me a cookie sheet and a hot over and I’m good to go.

Follow this easy recipe:

After thoroughly washing the Brussels Sprouts, cut the them in half and toss them in a bowl with olive oil, salt and pepper. Then place them on a cookie sheet. Roast in the oven at 450 for about 20-25 minutes (check on them after 10 minutes), until they start to brown. Let them roast longer if you like them crispy and crunchy, like we do. Yum.

Tips: If you like your veggies sweet, sprinkle with brown sugar or maple syrup before you roast, or if you prefer savory or with a kick, sprinkle with paprika, minced garlic, bacon bits, or chili flakes. You will impress your friends and family with this one. And if I can do this, so can you.

Bon Appetit!

    I am obsessed with Brussels sprouts. I love them oven roasted and also cooked up with a diced apple, caramelized onions and a dash of apple cider vinegar. I found the recipe for that on Whole Foods. Even my kids ate it.
