Roasted Brussels Sprouts - Cooking for Others:)



Kilai Koss Varuval:

Never been a big fan of Brussels Sprouts!! Have you heard this before? Sometimes we don't live for ourselves, sometimes we have to do things that we don't like and sometimes we have to mingle with people we hate. Well, I dislike Brussels Sprouts in all forms! I dunno, I was never particular when in comes to food! But it gives me creeps to enjoy this veggie alone!! Even the best preparation in the world doesn't tempt me at all!

And cooking for others could be equally fun too. I fix this quite often with utmost care and love, during my cooking sessions and to significant others. My mantra is treat others like you treat yourself. In fact, nothing feels so great than feeding others:)

Ingredients:

Brussels sprouts 7-10
Extra virgin olive oil 1/2 tablespoon
Salt
Lemon juice few spoons
You favorite seasoning 1 teaspoon.

Method:

Wash and clean the vegetable. Remove the outer bracts and trim the stalk.

Now coat them with olive oil and sprinkle salt. Cover and bake them for about 30 minutes.

Once the veggie is done, remove the foil(cover) and add seasoning and lemon juice. Now broil the same briefly for 4-7 minutes, often turning their sides to get that rich roasted flavor.

There you go, its done. Maybe drizzle few spoons of oil before serving.

Actually, I have never cooked with them before, so not sure if I would like them or not. But, I like veggies from this family, so why not. I love the idea of baking them and adding lemon and seasoning to it. Must try.
