Cast Iron Roasted Brussel Sprouts
I am a huge fan of roasted vegetables, and at the top of that list are Brussel Sprouts. I bet I cook them 2-3 times per week. If you haven’t yet figured out your go-to recipe for these tiny cabbages, this cast iron version is the answer. I absolutely love this recipe – it’s both quick and delicious, and (amazingly) is something the whole family enjoys.
- 1 pint brussel sprouts
- Olive oil
- Kosher salt
- Trim bottom of brussels sprouts, and slice each in half top to bottom. Heat oil in cast-iron pan over medium-high heat until it shimmers; put sprouts cut side down in one layer in pan. Sprinkle with salt.
- Cook, undisturbed, until sprouts begin to brown on bottom, and transfer to oven. Roast, shaking pan every 5 minutes, until sprouts are quite brown and tender, about 10 to 20 minutes.
I used this new cast iron stir fry pan from my friends over at Lodge Cast Iron, that makes this recipe all the more quick + easy. It goes a little deeper than a typical cast iron pan making it so easy to stir fry my veggies without so much mess + splatter.
After I roasted these, I wanted to try a new + updated way to serve them up for dinner. I had a little homemade mayo left over and I mixed a small amount with some grated parmesan-reggiano cheese, like a simple aioli sauce. It was so different, but in the best way possible. Creamy with a bit of tang and just the right amount of dressing or sauce – I’m pretty sure we licked the bowl clean.
I’d love to know your favorite way to get your children (and husband …) to eat more veggies – I am always open to trying out new recipes with these guys. Let me know in the comments below!
