It is no secret that I love brussel sprouts. As I have mentioned before my sis-in-law started me on this brussel sprout love affair, and it has only continued over the years, but The Hubby has never been a fan. I have made many variations of these cute little bundles of veggie goodness trying to win him over but nothing has worked…UNTIL NOW.
I started these by simply roasting them with my favorite spice combo and then the fun began. So just over half way into the roasting process I drizzled some lemon juice over these already beautiful little bundles and then let them continue roasting which not only intensifies the brussily goodness but also the lemon flavor…both of which are amazing and especially together. Just when its time to serve them I drizzle with the remaining lemon juice, some lemon zest and some shredded parmesan….because lets just be real anything with a little parmesan sprinkled over the top is so, so good!
OK so back to The Hubby and his conversion into being a brussel sprout lover. Like I said before he has never been a fan, but he promised he would try everything I fix so he had to take at least a bite…and one bite was all it took. He very cautiously took his bite and then all of a sudden there was a huge smile on his face and then something I never imagined I would hear…he liked them. What? I’m sorry, what was that? You like what? YES The Hubby likes brussel sprouts!! MY dreams had come true…I was so excited I immediately called my sis-in-law with the good news…this was a big deal. Just beware there are more brussel sprout recipes coming…The Hubby even asked me when I was making them again.
Trust me this recipe can turn a brussel sprout hater into a lover in just one bite…don’t believe me…give it a try and let me know how it turns out.
