Roasted Brussels sprouts

with 2 comments

There are various recipes, but I’m making this one from the Barefoot Contessa:

1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts
3 tablespoons good olive oil
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut off the brown ends of the Brussels sprouts and pull off any yellow outer leaves. Mix them in a bowl with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Pour them on a sheet pan and roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Shake the pan from time to time to brown the sprouts evenly. Sprinkle with more kosher salt ( I like these salty like French fries), and serve immediately.

I’ll probably include a cut-up red onion in the roasting. This will be good with watching a movie—a healthful substitute for popcorn (itself healthful save that I use lots o’ butter).

UPDATE: Extremely tasty—and easy. The first two bowls of it I had with Parmesan sprinkled over it, the last bowl plain.

  1. This sounds great. I love Brussels sprouts (and Parmesan).
