(Extensive research has been done to correctly spell and capitalize brussels sprouts. I definitely learned something today!)
I’ve been seeing brussels sprouts all over Pinterest. I still get excited when I find out I like a vegetable I once thought I would never eat, so I had to try them. I bought a big bag of them at Sam’s Club this weekend hoping that they would become a new staple on my menu. I only made enough for my lunch, so there are a still a lot left. Here is what you need:
- 4-5 ounces of brussels sprouts (per person)
- 1 teaspoon of olive oil (per serving)
- dash of salt
- dash of garlic
- tablespoon of parmesan cheese (per serving)
You have to cut the bottoms off the sprouts and remove any loose leaves. Then measure about 4 ounces of sprouts. This was just enough for a side serving.
Sprinkle the sprouts with a little olive oil, a bit of salt, and a little garlic if you like garlic. Cook them in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. When there are few minutes left, sprinkle a little parmesan cheese on top and put them back in a for a few minutes.
Serve the sprouts with a salad and a peanut butter banana protein smoothie.
Greenest lunch ever.
