Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts.

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:

 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

image

Place them in a baking dish like this:

image

 Grab that butter full of good fat

image

Melt the stick of goodness and drizzle that over the sprouts

image

Take  some fresh garlic and a dicing knife and dice away as finely as possible

image

Sort of like this

image

Now sprinkle the garlic over the sprouts. Uh huh, now it looks like this

image

 Take 1/2 of  your fresh lime (or lemon) and squeeze it over the dish of green goodness

image

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
