Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts are powerfully nutritious, like all of their cabbage kin.  They are a strong flavored green, and when properly prepared are uniquely nutty and flavorful.

They are at their peak of flavor when harvested after a frost, or during the cool days of Fall.  There are many ways to coax the best from these beauties.  The key to nutty roasted flavor is a bit of oil, salt — and a hot oven.  My simple recipe is below.  Enjoy!
