If you are looking for a tasty, nutritious snack or side dish, look no further than Roasted Brussel Sprouts. Brussel sprouts are a nutrition powerhouse, think green cabbage times ten! They are rich in vitamins and minerals, including but not limited to vitamins A, B complex, C, manganese, and omega 3 fatty acids. Medical researchers are finding increasing evidence that consuming Brussel sprouts and other cruciferous vegetables on a regular basis promote health and reduce risk of illness, including some cancers. We are all about eating for optimal nutrition, but not at the expense of enjoyment. I hope you give this recipe a try because these are not the Brussel sprouts that your mother used to make, I promise.
½ – 1lb Brussel Sprouts, cleaned and halved
2 Tbsp Garlic Olive Oil from Pasture 42
2 Tbsp Rogue Creamery Butter, melted
½ Tsp Salt, or to taste
Fresh Cracked Pepper
1/3 c. Parmesan Cheese
Preheat oven to 375°F. While the oven warms, melt the butter and prepare the Brussel Sprouts. Rinse each sprout and remove outer leaves if necessary. Slice each sprout in half and place in bowl or Ziploc bag. Add the butter, olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss until each of the sprouts is covered in the oil mixture. Let them marinate for 30 minutes on the counter, re-tossing periodically.
Place the marinated Brussel Sprouts on a baking sheet. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes, add the Parmesan Cheese and continue roasting for another 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, let them cool for a few minutes and enjoy! For culinary interest or variation, experiment with your favorite seasonings.
