Brussels sprouts are exceptionally rich in protein, dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They are also a great source of Vitamin C and K. Apart from that, they taste awesome when eaten roasted/caramelized. Makes a great side dish.
Sea salt (or regular) – 1/2 teaspoon or to taste
Black Pepper – 1/2 teaspoon, freshly ground
Parmesan (optional) – 1 tablespoon, freshly grated
- Remove the sprouts from the stalk, if these are not removed already. Wash and clean these. Trim the ends off, and cut make the sprouts stand on flat bottom, cutting it half way through top to bottom. Remove the loose leaves around, if any. Cutting the brussels sprouts midway, ensures that the stem holds the rest of the leave intact.

- Sprinkle salt and pepper powder. Mix. Finish it with freshly grated parmesan cheese (optional).
