Happy Halloween! Tis’ the season to roast vegetables and today is no exception. Lately I have been turning into a huge brussel sprout fan and I am loving it. Many years have passed in my life where I never tried a brussel sprout let alone thought about roasting it in the oven.
Well my friends that has all changed. I am on the brussel sprout bandwagon like society is onto chia seeds. Yep that is right. I heart brussels sprouts. Oh wow, did I just say that?
Ok, enough banter, let’s move on. This recipe doesn’t get much easier than this – 6 ingredients and you have a side dish that will make you happy.
- Brussel Sprouts, halved
- Drizzle of Olive oil
- Parmesan Cheese, grated
- Pine nuts
- Salt & Pepper
- Preheat oven to 400 Degrees F.
- Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and lay out the brussel sprouts, season with salt and pepper and drizzle the olive oil.
- Toss and roast
- In a small dry pan over medium heat, add the pine nuts to toast them for extra flavor
- After the brussels are tender ( about 30 minutes) remove from the oven, add the grated Parmesan cheese and pine nuts. Toss together.
Zesty Tip: When you are buying brussel sprouts, make sure you hunt for the firm ones with a tight outer leave. I find these are the freshest and best for roasting.
A simple dish that goes with anything. It works as a side dish, an evening snack or for some – maybe even a main course.
Have a great Halloween wherever you are and eats lots of treats.
