Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Browned Garlic

The roasting gives the outer leaves of the sprouts a crispy texture, while the middles remain nice and tender.

  • 1 lb Brussels sprouts, ends trimmed then cut in half
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, optional
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Toss the Brussels sprouts with half of the olive oil, 1 tsp ground sage and a generous amount of salt and pepper.   Place Brussels sprouts in a baking dish coated with cooking spray.   Bake at 425 for 20-25 minutes or until spouts are crisp, yet tender.    Heat remaining olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.   Add sliced garlic and cook for about 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from heat and stir in fresh lemon juice if using.   Add roasted sprouts to the garlic oil, and toss to combine.
