I have been seeing and hearing about brussel sprouts for a while now and have been pretty skeptical. I mean, aren’t they supposed to smell really bad or something? I figured if I’ve been seeing them everywhere then they must be good, right? I decided to give them a try this weekend. I went with garlic because, it can make anything taste good, right?
Fresh brussel sprouts
Cracked black pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Wash the brussel sprouts. Cut off the butt of the little cabbage. You can also slice them in half if you want but I kept mine whole.
Place the cut brussel sprouts in a bowl with some fresh black pepper and 3 cloves of minced garlic. Drizzle all of this with olive oil and mix.
Place the brussel sprouts on a baking sheet lined with foil. Sprinkle with kosher salt. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 min. This will make the brussel sprouts a little crispy on the outside and the salty flavor will start to come out.
About halfway trough you can toss the pan a little, so that all sides cook evenly. When they are done, they will look something like this.
They smelled delicious! (I think it was the garlic) This is a super easy and super healthy addition to any meal. Enjoy!
