roasted brussel sprouts

brussel sprouts are one of my favs! i have enjoyed them since i was a little girl when my great great grandma would make them with melted velveeta cheese...yum! i thought i would share one of my favorite ways to prepare them which you will find is much healthier than the ones smothered in velveeta cheese... although i am sure some of you were grossed out at the title of this post, this is a yummy way to prepare them.

desired amount of brussel sprouts
olive oil or coconut oil
sea salt

1. pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. 

2. toss brussel sprouts in a large bowl with desired amount of oil and salt. i use course sea salt and a liberal amount of oil. this makes them salty on the outside which gives great flavor to the entire sprout. spread 2 tablespoons of oil in a roasting pan or other sheet pan with edge. roast for about 40 minutes stirring and flipping regularly to ensure the sprouts brown evenly. leave them in a little longer to get the outside crispy. (ethan prefers the crispier parts)
