Easy Side: Truly Scrumptious Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts are an amazing vegetable that provide our bodies with a  mega dose of both Vitamin K and Vitamin C, and a host of other vitamins and minerals.They help our bodies by aiding in detox, providing antioxidants, aiding in digestion, fighting inflammation. The list goes on…The point is they are great for you, but they also taste great. Here’s a minimalist recipe for Brussels Sprouts roasted with Shallots that I make  quite often.

Brussels Sprouts with Shallots:


Brussels Sprouts

Shallots, sliced in rounds (to taste)

sea salt

freshly ground black pepper

garlic powder



1. Place brussels sprouts on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Spray with Organic Olive Oil spray. 2. Season generously with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika.

3. Spread shallots over brussels sprouts, and spray with olive oil once more.

4. Cover with aluminum (I always put a layer of parchment over the food before the aluminum for health reasons)

5. Bake covered, at 425 for about 20 minutes (until brussels sprouts are tender), then lower oven to 375 and uncover until desired doneness (I like them crispy because this recipe makes them crunchy on the outside but buttery and smooth on the inside). Enjoy!
