Bon Voyage Brussel Sprouts

{Bon Voyage}

Thanks to the guy at Whole Foods, I became aware that brussel sprout season is almost over.

Saddened by the news, I decided I needed to get one more sprout dose before moving onward into the summer season. Brussel sprouts make for a great side, but once deliciously seasoned this veggie can act as a tasty appetizer on its own!

Ingredients: Brussel sprouts (I just used a small cup from the grocery store, but if you buy in bulk follow ingredients proportionately), 1 clove of chopped garlic, 1 ½  teaspoons of olive oil (for every 2 cups of sprouts), 1 teaspoon on rosemary (for every 2 cups of sprouts) lemon zest (from a frozen lemon), Salt & Pepper (season to liking)

Get It Cookin’: Pre heat oven to 350. Combine garlic, olive oil and rosemary in a bowl then mix in brussel sprouts using your hands…get messy!

Place sprouts on a lined baking sheet, be sure to get all of those yummy flavors out of the bowl! Sprinkle with salt and pepper. I do not like to give exact measurements when it comes to salt and pepper. My suggestion would be to not sprinkle with a heavy hand. Go light, there is no coming back from an overly salted dish and you can always add more after they are done baking.

Pop these guys in the oven for 20-25 minutes, top with some lemon zest and grub down.

    • It is so funny that you said that, I recently just had the most amazing brussel sprout salad at a place called Bucaan in Palm Beach. They cooked and shredded brussel sprouts and then tossed them with a caesar dressing. So it ended up being a warm salad. For a bit more decadence, I would suggest topping with some crispy bacon and/or panko bread crumbs (seasoned with a bit of parmesan cheese). Please, let me know how they come and have a delicious (and romantic) valentines day! xo
