Before you roll your eyes and gag on the words “brussels sprouts” you need to keep reading. These little balls of bitterness are actually really sweet and tasty when roasted with some honey. Trust me, I’ve converted two non-brussels sprout eaters into sprout lovers with this combo. It’s easy to whip up for a last minute dinner date or just a night when you really don’t want any effort involved. The total prep and cook time is 15 minutes. It doesn’t get much quicker than that people.
- Half a stalk of brussels sprouts (about 3 cups)
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil (enough to coat the sprouts)
- 2-3 tablespoons of honey (again, enough for a nice coating)
- A dash of salt and cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Cut the bottoms off of the sprouts and slice them in half. Toss them together with the olive oil, honey, and cinnamon until fully coated. Lay them flat side down on a baking pan and sprinkle with salt. Bake them for about 10 minutes or until browned.
Happy Eating, XO.
