I have taken the fear out of serving mushy brussels sprouts and created a Perfect Every Time Side dish adults and kids alike will love. Imagine glossy sprouts with a hint of garlic and oil that are tender inside with little salted chips to add a bit of crunch. Sprout chips are the leaves that fall off and deeply brown into crunchy bites, like little potato chips.
This quick and healthy side dish will forever change your thoughts about Brussels sprouts. My family loves this side dish. I probably make this close to once a week. I've even converted my no veggie eating nephew into a Brussels sprouts lover. With this recipe you will have perfectly cooked, scrumptious sprouts every time. Give this healthy Italian twist on brussels sprouts a try and you too will love them.
2 containers or approximately 1 1/2 lbs brussels sprouts, bottoms off and cut in half
1/4 cup olive oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste, I used 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground
2 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed with the heel of your hand
In a casserole or baking pan combine all ingredients, mix with a spoon until sprouts are well coated. In a preheated oven, roast the sprouts at 450 degrees for 30 minutes, mixing them half way through. That's it!
