Brussels Sprouts: Turns out they’re not disgusting

Posted by Hilary on May 23, 2010

I had a bias against brussels sprouts just like the majority of y’all. Kelly though, decided he liked them, which meant we made them. This is how I made the discovery that they are a perfectly reasonable vegetable. Tiny cabbages, really- but tasting kind of broccoli-esque.

Here’s how I’ve decided I like them, roasted brussels sprouts with lemon and garlic:

Preheat oven to 400 F

Cut off the bottoms and halve, then toss into roasting pan or onto baking sheet

Coat with about 2 TBSP olive oil

Add the zest of one lemon, then the juice of said lemon

Mince and add about 3 cloves of garlic

Throw in some salt and pepper

Roast for 30-35 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes

The picture below is before cooking. They will look darker once they’ve been roasted.
