I HOPE THAT TODAY’S kids aren’t growing up like the kids of my youth did, thinking that eating Brussels sprouts was some sort of punishment. This recipe will set you up with a deliciously prepared sprout that will be a treat to eat. If the sprouts end up rolling too close to the gravy or mashed potatoes, or end up falling into a rice dish and getting covered with almost any sauce from this book, they will be even better for it.

Oven-Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe


• 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved if small or quartered if large
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium tamari
• 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Put the Brussels sprouts in a large bowl. Add the oil, tamari, and pepper and stir until evenly distributed. Arrange in a single layer on the lined baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes, tossing or turning the Brussels sprouts once to ensure even cooking.
