Basic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

You can jazz up this basic recipe by adding Rosemary-Lemon Thyme Oil or Moroccan Spice Rub when you toss the Brussels sprouts with olive oil and salt and pepper before roasting. Or toss the Brussels sprouts with Sesame Sea Salt, Caramelized Shallot Butter, Ginger-Lemon Soy Splash, or Toasted Coriander & Garlic Oil after they come out of the oven.

Ingredients
  • 1   pound 
    Brussels sprouts
  • 1 - 3   tablespoons 
    extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    kosher salt; more to taste
  •  
    Freshly ground black pepper
  •  
    Fresh lemon juice (optional)
Directions
1.
Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 475 degrees F. Line a heavy-duty rimmed baking sheet with parchment. Trim the Brussels sprouts, then halve them lengthwise. In a medium bowl, toss the sprouts with enough of the olive oil to coat generously, the salt, and a few grinds of pepper.
2.
Turn the Brussels sprouts out onto the baking sheet and arrange the pieces so that they are evenly spaced and lying on a cut side. If the pieces cover the baking sheet sparsely, arrange them toward the edges of the baking sheet for the best browning. Arrange cut side down on baking sheet. Roast until the sprouts are tender and browned, about 15 minutes (no need to turn them).
3.
Return the Brussels sprouts to the bowl in which you tossed them with the oil, or put them in a clean serving bowl. If they seem a bit dry, drizzle them with a little oil. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and lemon juice, if using.
