Due to demand, I will give you my super simple recipe for roasted brussel sprouts. This is very easy and is far from your grandma's nasty boiled into oblivion brussel sprouts. These are crisp and nutty in flavor with a nice crunchy texture.
Roasted Brussel Sprouts
15 med sized brussel sprouts
3 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons of oil
2 teaspoons of ground black pepper
2 teaspoons of salt
1 teaspoon of paprika
Pre-heat your oven to 375. In a baking pan pour the oil and garlic, enough to lightly cover the bottom. This is the most difficult part of the recipe. To much oil will make them soggy and to little will dry them out. Put the baking pan in the oven with the oil and let the oil get hot (about 5 minutes). Do not let it smoke. Chop the stem off each of the brussel sprouts and cut them in half lengthwise. When the oil it hot, sprinkle the pepper, salt, and paprika into the oil and place each brussel sprout open face down in the oil. Roast for about 25 minutes.
Sat I will be getting my first new furniture for my home! As a child I had an orange couch. It was called the Muppet-hide couch by everyone. It felt just like Muppet skin. When I was 19, my best friend Jonny and I threw everything I owned away so I could be a minimalist and travel, including the couch. This was one of the most difficult things for me to let go. In a thrift store today I spotted two chairs with the same material! I was so excited I almost cried. Needless to say I bought them and they will be a permanent fixture in my life. Pictures soon!
