Think you don't like Brussels sprouts?

Friday, March 05, 2010

If you've only had steamed or boiled Brussels sprouts, I can understand if you don't care for them. Ick. However, I urge you not to give up on them until you give this a try! Roasting veggies in the oven brings out their natural sweetness and flavor and it may just change your mind.

To roast Brussels sprouts:
Preheat oven to 400°F (204°C). Wash sprouts, trim the stems (if necessary), and cut them in half lengthwise. Toss them with a bit of olive oil (to coat) and salt and pepper to taste. Place cut side down on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper (or lightly oiled) and roast for 15 minutes. Turn sprouts and roast for an additional 10-15 minutes or until browned.

Did you know...?
...that a serving of Brussels sprouts (only 4 sprouts) contains 2g protein, 3g fiber, and 120% of the RDA of vitamin C?

Get roasting!
