- 1 ½ lbs fresh brussel sprouts
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tsp olive oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut off the brown ends of the Brussels sprouts and pull off any yellow outer leaves. Then cut them in half lengthwise.
Place them in a bowl and lightly mist them with olive oil, then toss them with salt and pepper.
Pour them on a sheet pan and roast for 20-30 minutes, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Shake the pan from time to time to brown the sprouts evenly.
Sprinkle with more kosher salt and serve immediately.
