This is one of my favorite ways to prepare them. I par-cook them in the microwave first to save on overall cooking time. Finishing them in the oven makes them all carmelized and sweet! They make a fantastic side dish any time of year but are especially indicative of holiday meals.
Healthy has never tasted so good.
Roasted Brussel Sprouts
- 4 cups of fresh brussel sprouts; cleaned and trimmed; cut in half lengthwise
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1 1/2 tsp chopped garlic
- 2 tbsp shredded Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
Placed prepped brussel sprouts in a microwave-safe covered dish with a couple tablespoons of water. Cover and cook in the microwave on high for about 3 1/2 minutes. You want them just tender but still firm.
Drain them in a colander and let them cool for a few minutes. Place them in a mixing bowl, add the rest of the ingredients and toss gently until well combined.
