I never ate Brussells sprouts because my mom didn't like them, although I eat basically all other veggies. A couple years ago we did a co-op type produce thing where we got bushels of produce fresh off the farm every week. We got a ton of brussels sprouts so I found a recipe on allrecipes.com and cooked em up. Seriously, best things ever. I will eat them over french fries every time! This is a great way to cook any veggies, a fave combo of mine is cauliflower and red onions along with the brussels sprouts! They get that yummy roasted flavor that brings out the natural sugars, mmm mmmm.



Ingredients:
3-4 cups (or more, whatever) of brussels sprouts, trim off the end if it looks icky and peel of any outer leaves that are holey or black or brown. Cut in half if they are very large
1-2 Tablespoons of oil
1/2 teaspoon or so of kosher or sea salt
Cracked black pepper
Dash of red pepper flakes (optional)

Preheat oven to 425 or 450. In a large roasting pan lay the sprouts out in one layer. Sprinkle the oil over the top and toss gently to coat. Add salt and pepper and stir again. Cook in hot oven, stirring every 5 or 7 minutes. Cook a total of 15 minutes or more, the darker they get the more the natural sweetness comes out. Taste and add more salt and pepper if necesary. If you didn't use very much oil a touch of butter might be good, but usually not needed. Voila, love!

This is my favorite (and only) way to eat brussels sprouts. I usually toss them with a bit of garlic and some almonds. Extra yummy!

That looks so good. It would make a very good snack for those of us who are trying to avoid our usual sweets. Thanks.  Smiley

They are good cold too or re-warmed....hmm maybe adding a vinagrette for a cold salad? Yeah right, the leftovers never last that long here! My brother likes to get the steam bags you put in the microwaves, but I hate steamed veggies, I want them a little crunchy or roasted!

These look so good.  I'm the only one in the family that likes Brussel Sprouts but I've only had them steamed therefore they come out kind of mushy.  Do you think I can do this with frozen sprouts?  I don't think I've ever seen them fresh and I almost always have frozen.

Ive done something very similar, except you put balsamic vinegar and some pine nuts in the brussel sprouts before roasting.
