Lemony Brussels Sprouts

We are finding ourselves towards the (apparent) end of Brussels Sprouts season – it's beginning of APRIL. How did that happen?!

But someone needs to tell the weather though, because snow is in the forecast for Saturday. In April. In North Carolina. Never mind that it's currently 80 degrees.

Anyway.

Brussels sprouts get a bad rap (bad rep? which is it?) but when cooked properly, might be my favorite vegetable. Besides spinach. Or maybe sweet potatoes. Okay DON'T MAKE ME CHOOSE.

Either way I like them a whole lot.

We've done them spicy, we've done them sweet, it was about time we did them citrusy.

Since the lemon + garlic combo is a classic (see: lemon and garlic hummus, and lemon and garlic artichokes for more of that), I included garlic and garlic salt as an option.

But if you just want to go straight lemon flavor, do that! All you need is the olive oil and a little sea salt. Plus the lemon.

And roast to perfection.

Lemony Brussels Sprouts after roasting

I like to add half the lemon juice before roasting and half of the lemon juice after roasting. A little of the baked-in flavor and a little of the fresh flavor.

No idea if this actually makes a difference but it's what I do! Lemony Brussels Sprouts are a wonderfully citrusy vegetable side dish.

These would be great on top of a salad or bed of greens, but also an easy simple side dish.

Use up those sprouts!
