Ingredients

1 1/4 pounds Brussels sprouts

1 tablespoon oil
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Materials

Cutting board & sharp knife, measuring spoons, large bowl, large baking sheet, and optional aluminum foil or parchment paper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Wash and trim Brussels sprouts. Cut large Brussels sprouts in half from top to bottom; leave small Brussels sprouts whole.
  3. In a large bowl, toss Brussels sprouts with the oil, salt, and pepper.
  4. Place Brussels sprouts in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Lining the baking sheet with foil or baking parchment will help with clean-up.

  6. Remove from oven and drizzle with lemon juice.
  7. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.

Notes

To add a bit of spice to these Brussels sprouts, mix some minced garlic and 1 tablespoon of mustard with the oil, salt & pepper.
