Whoever said "You learn something new every day" is a genius. For example, I had no idea that I liked Brussels sprouts. I guess I've never really given them a chance, but I lived by the stigma that they just aren't good. Just like everyone believes Fruit Cake at Christmastime isn't good. You never know unless you give them a chance!
Roasting these little guys gives them a little crunch on the outside, but they remain soft and moist inside. The salt and pepper really brings out the flavor, too. It kind of resembles the saltiness you would find on a french fry. These are definitely one of my new favorite side dishes. If you think you don't like Brussels sprouts, give these a try and hopefully they'll change your opinion of them!
- 1 lb. Brussels sprouts
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Cut off the ends of each Brussels sprout and remove any discolored leaves. Combine them in a bowl with the olive oil, salt and pepper and toss to coat.
Pour the Brussels sprouts into a roasting pan or sheet pan and cook for about 30 minutes, or until they are crispy on the outside and tender inside. Shake the pan every few minutes so they cook evenly.
