ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

Brussels was somthing interesting that I wanted to try for long. Most of the time I was away from brussels because that was quiet expensive. But I wanted to know what it tastes like so took some. I adapted this roasted recipe from ''Barefoot Contessa'' Food network. It tastes good just like mini cabbages. When I had a bite, it was just crispy on onside and tender inside. Also I liked the crunchy flavour just the way I like them all on my baked recipe. I served them with carrots , green bellpeppers and boiled eggs. It is a perfect healthy snack too.


INGREDIENTS

5 Brussels sprouts.

1 tbs Oil.

Salt and pepper to taste.

1 tsp Lemon juice.

METHOD.

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Cut off the ends of brussels and remove the outer leaves. If its too big, cut them into 2 halves.


In a bowl, add the brussels, salt and pepper and keep them for 15 min.


Transfer them to a aluminium sheet and roast them for 30 min or until the outer skin turns crisp. Then turn them on another side and roast them till the brussels turns brown.

Place them on a plate and drizzle with lime juice.

Serve hot with other veggie.

Enjoy!!
