Roasted Brussel Sprouts

A dead simple vegan recipe

Brussel sprouts are some kind of miniature cabbages with a rather specific taste. Usually, people either love them or hate them. I'm in the first category, hence this short recipe.

I'm mainly used to boil them. Sometimes, I also cook them with a frying pan. Last time, I discovered they could be prepared with an oven. The result was so much better than my usual attempts that I decided to share the result. I'm a lousy and a lazy cook, but this is special.

It's really simple:

  1. Wash your Brussel sprouts and cut them in half.
  2. Put them in an oven dish or on an oven plate.
  3. Pour generous quantity of olive oil on your sprouts.

Now, you can enhance this a bit with a variety of options:
