I know, I have been horrible with blogging the past couple of months. Actually, I have recently received a few, lets call them, “hate emails” asking when the next time I’ll be posting.
I have been spending a lot of time cooking and baking — surprise, surprise! And I am excited to share with you that I have had some fantastic success stories that I will be able to catch you up on.
Which is exactly what I am going to do right now…
Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and lets all admit it… you should never, EVER, make a recipe for the first time on Thanksgiving. Am I right? I’m such a dork when it comes to recipes, I have to test them out in advance. This weekend, I couldn’t help but get a bit creative with some gorgeous brussels sprouts. Actually, it wasn’t that creative, rather it was a middle ground of a mixtures of flavors that everyone in my family would enjoy.
Here’s what I did with the little bite-size veggies…
What you’ll need:
- 1 small basket of brussels sprouts
- extra virgin olive oil
- salt & pepper
- 2 cloves garlic
- juice of half of a lemon
Preheat oven to 375 degree. Cut the brussels sprouts in half and lay on a baking sheet. Drizzle some extra virgin olive oil over top, sprinkle with salt and pepper and two garlic cloves that are chopped up into small pieces. Toss this mixture together and spread out on to the baking sheet. Bake for 20-23 minutes. Remove from oven and place into a serving bowl. Juice half a lemon over top of the brussels sprouts. Serve!
It’s that easy, and I swear you’ll love it! I can’t help but enjoy a combination of garlic and citrus on top of a very flavorful green vegetable! Let me know what you think, and be sure to enjoy this recipe this Thanksgiving!
