We all remember when we were little and we tried to pawn off our brussels sprouts to the dog under the table… I don’t know about you, but I always got caught red handed! Well with this simple side dish, you will see this once despised veggie in a different light and you will definitely want to keep them all to yourself!
Originating from the cabbage family, brussels sprouts contain a large amount of Vitamin A and C and folic acid. They are also a great protecter against colon cancer. And, if it could get any better, they are SO easy to make.
Simple, Healthy Side Dish Recipes: Roasted Brussels Sprouts
First, turn on the oven to 350 degrees. Next, cut the brown ends of the brussels sprouts and remove any loose outside leaves. Place all sprouts in a mixing bowl and add about 3 tablespoons of olive oil, just enough to coat all of the vegetables. Now, season generously with salt and pepper and then give it a good stir.
Spread the brussels sprouts out onto a baking sheet covered in foil. Bake the sprouts for about 45 minutes, just make sure to leave them in the oven until they are golden brown. Personally, I like mine a little toasty, but that’s totally up to you! Thats it. I told you, so simple. Finally, ENJOY!
