I have a confession to make, I didn’t like Brussels Sprouts or Roasted Brussels Sprouts when I was a kid but now I’m obsessed with them and so is my entire family, kids included! That’s right, train them young and it will be a lifestyle. We eat Brussels Sprouts all the time, not just for the holidays and now you can find them pre-washed and packed at Trader Joe’s which makes it easier to add to my weekly vegetable shopping list. I’m always on the hunt for new recipes but this simple delicious Roasted Brussels Sprouts recipe is my go to recipe for tasty, crunchy, flavorful Brussels Sprouts. I add lemon zest, the juice of a lemon, garlic, salt, pepper, olive oil and “BAM”! Mouth watering Brussels Sprouts!
