Roasting – The basics

IMG_2807

What is the ideal temperature for roasting Brussels sprouts?
450 degrees
But really, after much experimentation, I’ve found 450 works best. A lower temperature will cook them, but the texture won’t be as good. Think steamed vs. caramelized.

Just spread the sprouts on a cookie sheet or baking dish tossed with some olive oil. The spices are up to you, but we can go over my favorite combinations at a later time.

Twenty minutes or so should do it. Just keep an eye on them and mix them around once you’re halfway through so they don’t burn. Again, you want them to be caramelized.

Enjoy!
