brussel sprouts and a Fall-inspired dinner



The journey of a stalk of brussel sprouts 
               from the market  . . . to our kitchen . . . to our table. 


 
 

 




roasted brussel sprouts 
with lemon zest and Parmesan shavings

1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts
4 Tablespoons good olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 small lemon
fresh Parmesan shavings

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Cut off the brown ends of the sprouts and pull off any yellow outer leaves.
Mix them in a bowl with the olive oil, salt and pepper.
Pour them on a sheet pan and roast for 30 to 40 minutes, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside.
Shake the pan from time to time to brown the sprouts evenly. Turn the sprouts if necessary.
Sprinkle with more kosher salt, zest of 1 small lemon, and Parmesan shavings.
Serve immediately.

  11. I have only roasted brussels sprouts once in my entire life. My husband loved them. After seeing this, maybe I would try them again.

  13. Suzanne, you make brussel sprouts look so good! Love all of the pictures of them 'posing'. lol! I haven't cooked them in years. Didn't love them and that's weird because I love all veggies. I have not tried them roasted. I will now! This dish looks so delicious and perfect for Fall! Thanks for sharing it with SYC.
    hugs,
