Roasted Brussels Sprouts

It snowed yesterday. Not much really, but steady from about 1 o’clock until 11pm. And what does one want to do when snow is falling? Eat stuff that makes us feel warm. Like yummy roasted vegetables. Granted it wasn’t all that cold, but roasting vegetables never needs much convincing in the form of good reasons, sooo…

Ingredients

  •  1 lb Brussels Sprouts, cleaned and cut in half
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 380°F
  2. In a large bowl, toss the cut Brussels sprouts with the oil until evenly coated
  3. Transfer to foil lined baking sheet (easy clean up), sprinkle with salt, and zatar seasoning.
  4. Roast for about 30 -35 minutes, or until tender and browned in spots. Stirring once halfway through.
