I feel almost silly posting a recipe that’s so simple, but these are so yummy, I just have to share. I never ate Brussels sprouts until I was an adult, and for years in no other preparation but covered with cream sauce. I can’t recall now what first inspired us to roast them, but I’m so glad we tried it! This dish is now a favorite among most members of the family. Even my two-year-old has actually begun to eat them, rather than merely chewing them up and spitting them out.
1 lb fresh or frozen Brussels sprouts
2 T coconut oil, melted
¼ t salt
¼ t black pepper
- Preheat oven to 400°F
- Arrange Brussels sprouts in a single layer in a 9 x 13 pan
- Drizzle sprouts with coconut oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper
- Bake for 45-60 min, stirring once or twice during cooking, until sprouts have begun to caramelize a deep golden brown
Yield: 4 servings
