Lemony Roasted Brussels Sprouts [Recipe Post]

Roasted Brussels sprouts are my absolute favorite vegetable. I could make a whole batch just to snack on myself. 

Last weekend, we got about a pound of sprouts and half a dozen lemons in our Brown Box Veggies boxes. Lemon-flavored anything makes Dave happy; so, I got inspired. We used garlic from the garden.

1 lb Brussels sprouts
2 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
Juice of one lemon (about 2 tablespoons)
Salt & pepper

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Rinse the Brussels sprouts, cut the ends off and halve them lengthwise. Mince garlic.
  3. In a square casserole dish, toss the sprouts and garlic with the olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour lemon juice over top.
  4. Roast for about 45 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle with more salt and pepper if desired.
Enjoy! We had our Brussels sprouts with homemade mashed potatoes and chicken.
