Brussel sprouts get a bad wrap. That’s due to the fact that we likely remember plugging our noses and choking them down as a child. As I’ve experimented more with brussel sprouts as an adult, I realize they’re actually pretty darn good if you prepare them the right way.
There are so many ways you can prepare them but roasting is one of my favorites. It’s a simple recipe but you get a full depth of flavor. All it takes is some salt, pepper and a bit of fresh lemon juice and you’ve got a winning side dish. To me brussel spouts pair well as a side with red meat, white meat, seafood or really anything else. I’d say if you don’t think you’re a fan then give this recipe a try and you just might be surprised.
