  1. Roasted Shaved Brussels Sprouts


    Here’s a healthy side dish that’s quick and easy to prepare. From Kroger.


    • 1 1/4 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and “shaved” or sliced thin (about 7 cups)
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • 4 cloves garlic, sliced thin
    • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
    • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
    • 1 lemon, zested and cut into 8 wedges


    • Step 1
      Preheat oven to 450°F. When the oven is hot, drizzle a large sheet tray with olive oil and place in the oven to heat it. Heat pan 5 minutes. Toss the shaved Brussels sprouts onto the hot pan; scatter garlic, pepper flakes, and salt evenly over the sprouts and return the pan to the oven.
    • Step 2
      Roast the Brussels sprouts until just beginning to brown, about 20-25 minutes, stirring once halfway through baking time.
    • Step 3
      Toss the Brussels sprouts with lemon zest and juice squeezed from 4 of the lemon wedges. Serve the Brussels sprouts with remaining lemon wedges on the side. Refrigerate leftovers.
