My husband, like most men, will eat just about anything. But he has always told me that he hates Brussels sprouts. I was at the grocery the other day and they had tons of them on display and they looked so green and yummy. I bought them and tried cooking them on the stove. They were okay, but still not that great. So I decided to try again and bake them this time. And it was incredible! We were both practically licking our plates whishing there were more. I don't generally follow recipes, I prefer to wing-it and create things my own way. So I will try to explain how I made these little yummy green sprouts!
Start with pre-heating your oven to 400 degrees.
About 20-25 Brussels sprouts
3 tablespoons olive oil (or any other healthy oil like coconut)
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
Cut off the hard end piece of the Brussels sprouts and peel off any discolored leaves. I then cut them in half to make them bite-sized. If any leaves fall off, go ahead and bake them too... they turn out like a chip! In a bowl, mix your Brussels sprouts with the oil, garlic, salt & pepper. Make sure they are all coated well with your mixture. Place them on a baking pan and roast in the oven for 30 minutes. I recommend checking them at 15 minutes, move them around a bit to make sure they are getting roasted on all sides, then put back in the oven. My oven cooks really fast so I have to be careful not to burn things. Once they are brown and crispy, pull out of the oven and serve immediately.
I promise this might just change your mind on how delicious these can be! Oh, and they are good for you too. Just don't tell the kids!
