Stay Healthy Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Hi Readers!!!!

Brussel Sprouts have never tasted soooooo good!!!! My Mom used to fix brussel sprouts for me when I was small and I have fond memories of these small cabbage looking cruciferous vegetables. I have modified the recipe by roasting them which provides a remarkable crunchy outer texture and delicious soft center. The key benefits of brussel sprouts include anti-cancer properties due to their high phytochemical content. They are also high in fiber, are a good source of folate, vitamin C, and iron. Let's get to the kitchen and cook up this power packed side of sprouts tonight!!!!


STAY HEALTHY ROASTED BRUSSEL SPROUTS




1 lb Brussel Sprouts
3 Tblsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Johnnys Garlic Spread & Seasoning (or spices that you like...pepper, oregano, thyme, basil..just to name a few)


Heat oven to 375 degrees
Prepare a cookie sheet by covering with aluminum foil (easy clean up)
Wash, drain and cut the stem ends off all the Brussel Sprouts
Place Olive Oil in a bowl and sprinkle with 1 tblsp seasoning (or spice of your liking), mix together like a salad dressing
Roll each brussel sprout in oil mixture and place on the cookie sheet
Do not waste the sprout leaves that have separated, coat those and place on the sheet for a crunchy treat
Bake for approximately 40-45 minutes or until the outer shell is nicely browned

Remove and Enjoy!!!!!!


Stay Healthy!!!!
