Elle's Kitchen: Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Good & Good For You


Okay, I can hear a good portion
of you making a resounding,
"bleck" noise when you think
about Brussel Sprouts.
But, you probably have never
had them roasted.  They are
nothing like the often soggy
boiled or (save us!) microwaved
in plastic kind.  And it is simple.

You will need :
brussel sprouts
salt & pepper
olive oil

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Peel off the tough outer leaves
and cut in half.

Place in an oven safe baking
dish and toss with salt & pepper
and olive oil,  roast at 375F
until caramelized and tender,
20 to 30 minutes.

Brussel Sprouts are cruciferous
vegetables, a special group of
vegetables that have excellent
cancer fighting properties.  They
contain a kind of photochemical
which stimulates our bodies to
breakdown potential carcinogens.
