Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike. -John Muir

Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Undoubtedly, we all have heard of the terrible stigma associated with brussel sprouts.  This is unfortunate because they are quite delicious.  I wanted to mix up the cabbage and potatoes for St. Patrick's Day this year, so I roasted some of these... I consider it a wise decision. Yum!

What you will need:
1 lb brussel sprouts
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sea salt
freshly ground pepper (to taste)

Preheat the oven to 400.
Prepare the brussel sprouts by cutting off the brown ends, peeling off the outer leaves if needed and slicing them in half.
Add the brussel spouts, oil and salt to a bowl.  Toss until the brussel spouts are coated.   Place the brussel sprouts on a baking sheet and dust with pepper.
Cook for 35 minutes, stiring half way so they cook evenly.

It's that easy. And very good.
