Who Can Resist These Cute Little Cabbage Heads?

In keeping with previous post-- the nutrition theme from the Dr. Oz show-- today’s recipe for Brussel Sprouts (recommended 3X a week for optimum health) is soooo easy. I found that people who don’t even think they like the petite cabbage heads  like this. 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
1 bag of raw brussel sprouts ( I like to buy the bag at Trader Joe’s in produce—they are a very pretty fresh looking green and large size.)
Put entire bag in a pot of boiling water for about 4 minutes (as per package says)
Drain and place on a cookie sheet.
Dab with olive oil and roll around until they are all covered with some.
Add salt and any other favorite seasoning. I use Lemon Pepper.
You can leave whole or slice in half.  I think the interior design is pretty.
Roast in oven about 10-12 minutes.
These can be eaten hot or cold. A great healthy snack or  a colorful addition to any buffet.

  1. Again, I am impressed with the photograph. Your pictures of people should be so lucky! I like brussel sprouts, by the way.
