Between Smitten’-knittin’ and getting the house ready for company, I don’t have a lot of time right now, but I did want to pop over for a minute (and not break my NaBloPoMo streak – I’m in the homestretch!) and show you my current snack obsession.
Zucchini has been my favorite vegetable since I was a kid, but lately Brussels sprouts are giving it a serious run for its money. I love roasted Brussels sprouts, especially. I prepare them like this:
- preheat the oven to 400
- peel off the outer leaves of the sprouts, chop off the stems, and cut each one in half
- spread in a single layer on baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil
- drizzle sprouts with olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
- roast for 25-30 minutes, stirring or turning sprouts with spatula once or twice during roasting (or not, sometimes I skip this)
Oh mercy, just writing this makes me want to roast some. As I’ve mentioned before, when I pull these out of the oven, I can hardly keep myself from just standing there at the stovetop, eating the sprouts off the tray.
But I found something I like even better. NomNomPaleo’s Brussels sprouts chips. Oh, people. OH, PEOPLE. These are so good. If you like Brussels sprouts (or even if you don’t), and you haven’t tried this yet, I would highly recommend it. I’m now trying to keep Brussels sprouts in my fridge at all times so I can make these chips.
