Cost: Recipe $5.16 / Serving $1.29
- 1 lb brussel sprouts ($2.98)
- 3 tablespoon olive oil ($0.39)
- 1 whole lemon, sliced into wedges ($0.89)
- 5-6 cloves garlic, halved or quartered ($0.30)
- ½ cup Parmesan cheese (grated or shredded) ($0.60)
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Wash and prep your brussel sprouts by cutting them in halves or quarters depending on size.
In a gallon sized bag or in a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and mix well.
Lay the brussel sprout mixture out onto the prepared baking sheet in an even layer.
Bake for about 15 minutes until browned and crispy. Serve.
Depending on how large your brussel sprouts are, you may find that they need to be cut into halves, quarters, or even into 6 pieces per head. To do this well, I recommend slicing them vertically so that each section still has a piece of the bottom of the sprout.
This will help to hold each section together better so that it doesn't become a dish of scattered leaves.
You can prepare your brussel sprouts up to 2 days in advance but keep in mind that once sliced, brussel sprouts can dry out. To extend the fridge life, keep them stored in an airtight container for maximum freshness.
How to wash brussel sprouts
Clean them by rinsing them under water and removing the outer few leaves. This should help to take away any dirt or debris. Alternatively, you can soak them in a large bowl of water.
Brussel sprouts taste good reheated too. Simply lay them out on a baking sheet and cook at 350 degrees F for 5 minutes or until heated through. You could also microwave them for about a minute, but they do lose some crunch with this method.
