Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts trimmed and halved lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

Method:

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Toss Brussels sprouts with oil, salt and pepper on a rimmed baking sheet and roast, stirring once or twice, until deep golden brown, crisp outside and tender inside, 30 to 35 minutes. The leaves that are loose will be especially brown and crispy. Transfer to a bowl and serve.

Cranberry Pecan Brussels Sprouts
During the last 5 minutes of roasting, add 1 cup dried cranberries and ¼ cup pecan pieces. Stir well and continue roasting until Brussels sprouts are tender.
