roasted brussels sprout recipe.

hey folks! today im going to share my recipe for roasted brussels sprouts. while james is a big fan of my glazed carrots, i think id go so far as to say that these are my favorite roasted vegetable. 

which is actually kind of ironic because growing up i hated brussels sprouts. though as i got older i realized that was because when i was growing up, the only way my mom knew how to make them was by steaming them. which is horrible. thankfully shes learned her lesson and she doesnt do that anymore. and now i love brussels sprouts. 

heres how i like to make them:

roasted shaved brussels sprouts

(serves 2-4 as a side dish)


about 1 pound of brussels sprouts 
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
olive oil
garlic powder
lemon pepper
black pepper

start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees, and while youre waiting prep your brussels sprouts by chopping off the stems and removing any yucky outer leaves. next, use the slicing attachment of your food processor to cut them into thin shreds, and pile them onto a foil lined baking sheet. toss the shredded sprouts with a drizzle of olive oil and add the salt, pepper, garlic, and lemon pepper to your preference. bake for about 10 minutes, remove the pan from the oven to thoroughly toss the sprouts and add in the parmesan. bake for about ten more minutes until lightly browned and crispy on the edges. 

and thats it! to make an already simple recipe even simpler, i like to buy two pounds of brussels sprouts, shred them all, and then save half for the next week. 

hope youre having a great weekend!
