Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts

*Roasted Brussels Sprouts*

Serves 6

I dare say these will be the best Brussels sprouts you will ever eat. Crunchy and nuttily flavourful on the outside and creamy and delicately sweet on the inside, these are truly to die for! You can multiply and divide this recipe according to however many people you are serving. It’s a very forgivable recipe!

1 ½ pounds Brussels sprouts
3 TBS olive oil
½ to ¾ tsp of sea salt
½ tsp lemon pepper seasoning or freshly ground black pepper

Pre-heat the oven to 200*C/400*F. Pour the olive oil ontoa large shallowbaking tray with sides and set aside.

Cut the ends off the Brussels sprouts and trim off any yellow or tatty leaves. Throw them onto the baking tray and sprinkle with the salt and lemon pepper. Give them a good shake to roll them around in the oil and distribute the seasonings.

Roast them in the pre-heated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until crisp outside and tender inside. Give the pan a good shake every 15 minutes or so to help them to brown evenly.

Remove from the oven and taste one to see if you need any more seasoning or not. Serve hot.

*Note - You may find that if you are doing fewer than 1 ½ pounds you will not need as long a cooking time. I only did about ¾ of a pound last night and they only needed about 25 minutes.
