This is a simple recipe for Brussels sprouts.
You can easily vary the recipe by sprinkling the sprouts with cider vinegar, lemon juice, or tossing in some thyme or roasted chestnuts.
They’re also delicious with pine nuts, which you can either add near the end of cooking or toast separately and toss with the sprouts once they are roasted. Terrific with bacon, too.
- 500 g Brussels sprouts
- 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, to coat bottom of pan
- 5 cloves garlic
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Trim bottom of Brussels sprouts and crushed the garlic. Mix the sprouts in a bowl with the olive oil, salt, garlic and pepper.
Pour them on a sheet pan and roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Shake the pan from time to time to brown the sprouts evenly.
Taste, and add more salt and pepper if necessary. Enjoy!
