- 1 lb. Brussels sprouts, outer leaves and root ends trimmed and cut in half
- 3 cloves garlic, sliced thin
- Sea salt to taste
- Chili flakes to taste (¼ teaspoon)
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- Zest and juice of ½ lemon
Method of Preparation:
1. Turn the oven up to broil and pre-heat for 10 minutes. Toss the Brussels in 1 tablespoon of olive oil and garlic, season lightly with sea salt. Roast for 10 minutes.
