Recipe: Roasted brussel sprouts

I know, I know! You are thinking:  "Brussel sprouts? YUCK!".
But hear me out....
Roasted, this vegetable is yummy, with a nutty flavour. And it is so simple to do.
Here is how:
After you have discarded the outer few leaves and chopped off the stems, just cut each sprout in half, lengthwise. Coat with olive oil and some herb salt ( I love Herbamare - pictured - available in healthfood stores) and place facedown on a baking sheet. Optional: add minced garlic 5 minutes before they are done, and mix with tongs.
Roast for 15-25 minutes, with an oven temperature of 205c
The cut side should be nice and browned and crispy in places.

Truly YUMMY. Trust me on this!


  1. "Brussel sprouts, I hate brussel sprouts" says Teddie from the Forgotten Toys ... well I guess he wasn't in a position to try them roasted, poor pet. Anyway, I am with Teddie, but I didn't mind them roasted, tasted a bit more like cabbage!

  2. Y'know I like trying recipes just cos they make me go "what the heck would that be like?". This is one of those recipes.
