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.
