Go Green Brussels Sprouts Recipe

My favorite green vegetables of the moment are Brussels sprouts. It is often hard to find a tasty way to cook them. In the past I had always steamed them but found that the Brussels turned out too soft and mushy. This recipe bakes the Brussels sprouts to a crispy perfection!Brussels Sprouts 3

Ingredients: Brussels sprouts, olive oil, salt, pepper.

Directions: Start by washing your Brussels sprouts thoroughly, cutting the bottom off, and then slicing them in half. Place your halved Brussels in a mixing bowl. If some of the leaves fall off, add them to the bowl too…they will make a crispy treat when cooked!

Toss the Brussels sprouts in a generous amount of olive oil, then season with salt and pepper to your taste. Next I bake them in the oven at 450 for 25-30 minutes or until they start to brown and the outside leaves look crispy.

Once your Brussels sprouts are finished you can add a little more salt or pepper if needed. Pair this tasty vegetable with fish or chicken for dinner tonight!Cooked Brussels Sprouts
