Roasted Brussels Sprouts
1 ½ pounds of Brussels sprouts
1 teaspoon course salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
a misting of olive oil
Wash and prepare Brussels sprouts; trim off ends, pull off any yellowed or damaged outer leaves, and cut larger sprouts in half. Mist sprouts lightly with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and arrange in a single layer on a roasting pan. Roast in a 400º F (204º C) oven for 20-30 minutes or until sprouts are crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. Shake pan occasionally so sprouts brown evenly.
Perfect for the vegans and vegetarians who are coming to visit for the holidays.
