I always thought that Brussels sprouts are an acquired taste. I don’t think I know people that love them. I tried them when I was an adult and I wasn’t fond of them at the begging. I start eating sprouts because are very healthy.
This recipe is simple but with a mix of condiments so I don’t taste so much the sprouts. They are good with pine nuts or bacon. Today we don’t use pine nuts or bacon, but I can tell you for sure that they taste good made this way.
- 500 g Brussels sprouts
- 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- Red chili flakes
- 1 tablespoon butter (optional)
- Babe spinach leaves for decorations
Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Trim bottom of Brussels sprouts and cut them in half. Mix the sprouts in a bowl with the condiments, olive oil and butter.
Put them in a covered baking tray for 35 to 40 minutes, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Taste, and add more salt and pepper if necessary. Enjoy!
