You probably either love ’em or hate ’em, eh?
If you’ve never tried them, or the last time you tasted them you said ‘blech’, I would hope that you would give them another chance.
I like brussels sprouts and always have, but introducing them to my kids wasn’t a huge success…..until I jazzed them up. After trying some roasted brussels sprouts made by my sister in law, I will never steam them again.
I made up my own simple way of roasting them and now 6 out of my 8 kids really like them!
Lots of people are into EVOO (extra virgin olive oil), but I have a real thing for real butter. Thankfully, pure butter is seen across the health board as a healthy fat. (Finally.)
I have matured a bit about how I consume butter seeing as when I was 5-6 yrs.old I’d actually steal the stick of butter from the dining table and just chuck it in my mouth.
Yes, I was a chubby child.
Anyhow, here’s a simple and delicious way to make brussels sprouts especially tasty:
Print this>> Roasted Brussels Sprouts Printable Recipe
Start with a bag/package or two of fresh brussels sprouts
Take a dicing knife and slice those little heads in half (and maybe even fourths if they’re large).
This will help give you a thoroughly tender bite
Place them in a baking dish like this:
Grab that butter full of good fat
Melt the stick of goodness and drizzle that over the sprouts
Take some fresh garlic and a dicing knife and dice away as finely as possible
Sort of like this
Now sprinkle the garlic over the sprouts. Uh huh, now it looks like this
Take 1/2 of your fresh lime (or lemon) and squeeze it over the dish of green goodness
Next, I like to sprinkle one of my favorite healthy seasonings called Herbamare (found on Amazon and at most health food stores) generously over top
I finish it off with a light sprinkling of salt and then place in the oven to bake @425 for about 25-35 min. Maybe more depending on your oven and personal opinion of what “tender and delicious” is.
Voila! Roasted Brussels Sprouts
