Lemon-Thyme Roasted Brussel Sprouts

My current favorite cruciferous vegetable?  Brussel Sprouts. I love these cute mini cabbages – not to mention their amazing health benefits.  I’ll usually steam my brussel sprouts, but I wanted to mix things up and try roasting them. I added some:

olive oil

lemon juice

thyme seasoning

& some freshly ground pepper

to my brussel sprouts, which were already cut in half, and mixed it all around in a bowl to evenly coat the brussel sprouts with the mixture.  Then I spread them out on a pan and baked them for 20 minutes at 425 degrees.  Everyone’s oven is a little different and cooking times will vary, so be sure to keep an eye on them.  They are done when the outer leaf is a dark green/brown and crispy.  You may also want to flip them around after ten minutes in the oven to make sure they are cooking evenly.

Once they were done, I sprinkled some shredded Asiago Parmesan cheese over them.  Deeeelish!
