I know a lot of people aren’t a fan of these wonderful little cabbages, but I cannot get enough! Even back in the 80’s when they were just boiled and served, I loved them. But one of my absolute favorite veggies are roasted brussels sprouts. They’re ridiculously simple too! Not to mention believe it or not a good source of protein, fiber, and many other nutrients, including vitamin C! Here’s an quick and easy recipe.
1-2 lbs Brussels Sprouts (washed and halved)
about 2-3 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1-2 tsp Sea Salt
1-2 tsp Black Pepper
1-2 tsp Paprika (or whatever “red” spice I’m feeling that day-chili powder, etc)
1 large clove garlic (grated)
Preheat oven to 425
Place all ingredients in a large plastic storage bag and shake/press together
Empty the bag onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (does anyone else love those pre-cut sheets?)
Bake in oven for about 20 minutes. After 10 minutes turn sprouts to get that nice brown color on all sides.
That’s it! They look and smell so good that my anti-sprout husband tries them just because he wants to like them so bad! I don’t mind not sharing these though, they are just too good.
