Stickers and Sprouts
Though the season is just about over, I wanted to share a recipe for Brussels sprouts. My first few attempts at cooking them, many years ago, turned them into bitter little things. These are tender and delicious.
Oven Roasted Garlic Brussels Sprouts
2 lb Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved (quartered if large)
5 cloves garlic, minced fine or pressed through garlic press
1/2 cup water
2 tbs extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 black pepper
Place oven rack in upper third of oven and preheat to 425 degrees.
In a 9 x 13 inch baking dish, toss together Brussels sprouts, garlic, water, oil, salt and pepper and spread out in a single layer.
Bake for 40 minutes, tossing once about 25 minutes into cooking time. Remove from oven and toss sprouts in the pan, scraping up brown bits into the sprouts. I found the recipe here.
