Lemony Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Brussel sprouts
I used to hate brussel sprouts as a child. Actually, hate is probably putting it lightly. I despised them. I even hated the smell of them cooking. Katie hates brussel sprouts with a passion. Steven loves them as much as Katie hates them. I am quite fond of them. However, I only like them roasted; I think roasting makes them sweet. Brussel sprouts are also fun to grow. They grow on a stalk and are truly spectacular. I will have a couple stalks growing in my garden this summer. I can hardly wait.

Roasted Brussel Sprouts
1 lb (.45 kg) of Brussel Sprouts, Cut in Half
2 Tbsp of Olive Oil
1 Tsp of Kosher Salt
3/4 Tsp of Freshly Ground Pepper
Juice of One Lemon

Preheat the oven to 400F/204C/Gas Mark 6. Mix together all of the ingredients and spread in a single layer on a cookie sheet.

Roast for 30 minutes, turn the brussel sprouts halfway through roasting.
Yummy a bowlful of roasted brussel sprouts
The bottom line: will I make these again. Yes. Love them!

  1. Update- Katie has decided that she loves roasted brussel sprouts. These don't make it to the table. My family, myself included, eat these like candy.
