Roasted Brussel Sprouts from The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook

All of us remember those boiled, mushy Brussels sprouts that are served at Thanksgiving but everyone is surprised how delicious this vegetable can be when it's tossed with olive oil and roasted with lots of salt. And it's so easy!


  • 1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts
  • 3 tablespoons good olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Cut off the ends of the Brussels sprouts and pull off any yellow outer leaves. Mix them in a bowl with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Turn them out on a baking sheet and roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until crisp outside and tender inside. Shake the pan from time to time, to brown the Brussels sprouts evenly. Sprinkle with more kosher salt (I like these salty like french fries) and serve.

Serves 6.
