Brussels sprouts are one of the healthiest veggies on the planet (100g = 45 calories/3.38g protein/3.8g fiber). They are packed with vitamin C and beta carotene - great for maintaining a healthy immune system - and are a great source of folate, a B vitamin essential to fetal brain and spinal cord development.
This simple 3 ingredient recipe requires little prep time and tastes delicious!
1 lb Brussels sprouts (halved)
1 tablespoon olive oil (or just enough to coat)
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Preheat the oven to 375. Cut off the course ends of the sprouts and halve each sprout vertically. Mix them in a bowl with olive oil and salt to coat.
Place sprouts on a baking sheet to roast for 35-45 minutes, shaking the pan from time to time to ensure even browning.
Remove from oven, place in a bowl and serve. Add salt and pepper to taste, as desired.
Tip: Brussels sprouts freeze beautifully! So if you find gorgeous Brussels sprouts at the store, buy plenty. Just cut off the ends, remove excess leaves, wash and allow to dry fully before placing in an airtight container or baggie. They will last up to 10 months in your freezer.
