Crispy Orange-Scented Brussels Sprouts

Crispy Orange- Scented Brussels Sprouts - Meatballs&Milkshakes

I created this recipe one night this week when we had only a few minutes to cook dinner but wanted some green veggies to go with some braised chicken. The lovely crispy leaves add texture and the orange zest gives it a light, citrusy aroma. It’s going to become a holiday favorite, and you can make it tonight in 20 minutes.

Crispy Orange-Scented Brussels Sprouts

1 package brussel sprouts, bottoms sliced off and mangy leaves removed

3 tablespoons olive oil

Zest of 1 orange

Slice the brussels sprouts in 1/4 inch slices, so that you have very thin slices and strips of sprouts. Some will fall apart, and that’s fine. Toss with olive oil and salt and pepper. Roast on a baking sheet at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, or until the edges of some of the leaves start to brown. Sprinkle the zest on top and stir through before serving.

    ooh, great idea. We had Brussels sprouts last night (with bacon!), but I had never thought about making them citrusy. Sounds yummy!

    Great simple recipe! I’m not a big fan of sprouts, but perhaps I should give them another try. This is just the type of recipe to do so.
