Everyone’s buzzing about Brussels sprouts, but these little balls of veggie joy can be a bit bitter if they’re not done right. To tone down the taste, think small. Baby Brussels sprouts have a milder flavor than the full-sized version, and oven roasting with the right seasonings makes them an especially irresistible dish. In this recipe, they’re tossed with smooth olive oil, bright lemon juice and a dash of kelp seasoning, which is a tastier and lower-sodium alternative to salt.
Oven-Roasted Lemon-Kelp Baby Brussels Sprouts
1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.
2. In a large bowl, toss Brussels sprouts with olive oil and remaining ingredients until well coated.
3. Spread Brussels sprouts on foil-lined baking sheet and bake for 1 hour or until crispy.
