Virgin Sprouts

I need more sprouts in my life.  I want to get even more servings of fruits and veggies in my life and today I decided to experiment with brussel sprouts. I’ve heard of many people roasting them, but had yet to try them myself. 

I bought this microwaveable bag at Trader Joe’s.  That’s pretty cool that you can microwave them in the bag for a quick side dish, but I had roasting on the brain.

I preheated the oven to 425 degrees and started to trim the bases off of the sprouts.

And then cut them in half.

I put them on a pan with non stick spray and lots of salt and pepper!

I roasted them for about 20 minutes, tossing once halfway through.

  1. Those look delicious – just did something similar with fennel and loved it.
