Crispy Brussels Sprouts with Garlic Aioli

Brussels sprouts can be really amazing if you prepare them right. Part of the crucifer family, Brussels sprouts top the list in glucosinolates, which are important phytonutrients known for their cancer-protective properties. I serve these with garlic aioli, using cashew cream when I have a batch on hand.

 

Brussels Sprouts:

Ingredients:

  • 1 bushel brussels sprouts, washed, trimmed and cut in half
  • ~1/3 cup olive oil
  • salt & pepper

Process:

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Mix Brussels sprouts with a generous amount of olive oil and arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet with cut side down. Season with sea salt & pepper. Cook for 15 minutes, until golden brown.
