Best Brussels Sprouts

Did you ever have to eat Brussels sprouts when you were a kid? I did and boy did I hate them! Jump to 30+ years later and now they are one of my favorite vegetables. Funny how your tastes change over time, isn't it?

So the other night I was experimenting with new ways to cook Brussels sprouts and I came up with this tasty little recipe. If you like your vegetables cooked, but slightly crunchy (so not all the nutrients are zapped), you may enjoy this.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees for roasting. Combine the following ingredients in a mixing bowl:

16 oz. Brussel sprouts, cut into halves
1/4 cup virgin olive oil
1 tsp. chopped fresh thyme (or 1/2 tsp. dried thyme)
1 tsp. chopped fresh rosemary (or 1/2 tsp. dried rosemary)
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. minced garlic
2 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt

Add 4 tbsp. of olive oil to a roasting pan or baking dish for additional coating. Add Brussels sprouts and cook for 25-30 minutes. Serves 6 people.
