Roasted Brussels Sprouts
fresh Brussels sprouts
of high quality olive oil
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Fresh ground pepper
Pre-heat oven to 400°F.
Trim the Brussels sprouts by removing the dry base and cutting them in half the long way.
Place trimmed sprouts in a colander, rinse and drain well.
Transfer to a large bowl for seasoning.
Drizzle the olive oil and stir well to completely coat all of the sprouts.
Add salt, pepper, and half the garlic powder.
Stir well, then add the other half of the garlic powder, and more salt and pepper, if needed.
Add the lemon juice and stir again.
Transfer to a sheet pan, single layer, and roast.
Shake the pan every 8-10 minutes so the sprouts caramelize evenly.
When the sprouts are tender and well caramelized, remove from oven and serve hot.
Roasting time will be a function of the size of the Brussels sprouts. Watch them closely during roasting and remove early if cooking smaller sprouts.
