Oven-Roasted Brussel Sprouts

-Emily Fraysse

If you’re looking for a good snack that is healthier than the looming box of Cheez-Its in your pantry, look no more. I hadn’t tried brussel sprouts until a year ago when my friend made this super easy recipe for me as a snack (although it could also make an excellent side dish). These sprouts contain good amounts of vitamins A and C, folic acid, and fiber. It’s easy, delicious, and nutritious.

Oven-roasted brussel sprouts with lemon juice, garlic, and olive oil:

Estimated Time: less than 20 minutes

Ingredients:

½ to 1 pound of brussel sprouts
Extra virgin olive oil
3 cloves of garlic, peeled, halved, and slivered, or you can buy pre-chopped garlic at Trader Joe’s
Juice from 1 lemon
Sea salt
Black pepper

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Cut the bottom part and half each of the brussel sprouts. Trim away any outside layers of each brussel sprout.
Place the cut, washed brussel sprouts in a pan.
Drizzle olive oil and lemon juice over all the brussel sprouts. Then mix in garlic so that it covers each of the sprouts. Toss on some salt and pepper.
Put it in the oven for about 7 minutes or watch it carefully until they start to brown a bit on the sides.
