Shredded Parmesan Brussels Sprouts





Yes officer I am perfectly capable of running 6,943 miles next week, which is what it would take to burn the holiday calories off.


Can’t I just pay a fine?


Yes, here we are…heavier with guilt and fat cells.


Why don’t we dabble in some greenery today, not a running trail (although god knows I need it.) Lets make some Brussels sprouts..the kind that don’t seem like you are paying a fine.







INGREDIENTS (serves 4)

2lbs of Brussels Sprouts, coarsely chopped
Olive Oil, just enough to coat the sprouts
¼ cup Parmesan Cheese
Salt & Pepper







DIRECTIONS

Pre-Heat your oven to 425.


Coarsely chop your Brussels sprouts and toss with Olive Oil, Salt, and Pepper. Place Mixture on a foil lined baking pan. Roast for 25-30 minutes, tossing every 5 minutes .


Top with Parmesan and really really really enjoy.


Only 6,942 miles to go. Work it.

I love brussels sprouts! Great idea to roast them, too. Beautiful and simple, perfect after all the holiday excesses. :D

Megan said...

These sound incredible! Brussels sprouts are one of my favorite vegetables. We made them for Christmas day with just some olive oil and coarse salt and pepper. I don't think I've ever had them with parm... so I will have to try that!

amanda said...

Yes, I would rather just pay the fine. However, it would be no punishment for me to enjoy your delicious brussels sprouts. I know brussels sprouts are a love em or hate em food but, I love them.

Happy New Year to you!

Design Wine and Dine said...

You know...I said I was going to make these this holiday season and never did! Now I like your idea to make them and feel good about it b/c they're healthy and delicious! (I ran 4 today)...that makes only 6,939 for me!

BakingWithoutABox said...

Veggies that I would actually eat. That's brilliant! My commentary to the calorie police would be much the same after yesterday's feasting.

I'm going to be honest, I've never been a huge fan of brussels sprouts, but one of my resolutions is to eat more veggies. I think cheese is a good first step to accomplishing that :) I'll have to give these a fair shot! Hope 2011 brings you fantastic things :)

A SPICY PERSPECTIVE said...

Jennifurla...I have NEVER shredded brussel sprouts! That's it. Shredding this week out of shear curiosity! ;)

Foodiva said...

Haha... You had me laughing out loud about the fine, I imagine I have to run about 10,000 miles the way vie been gorging myself lately! As for chopping up the sprouts, what a brilliant idea... I usually eat mine whole, but this is one to try out!

Clements Family said...

I am with you on the running. I might have even more miles to run then you:)
I have never eaten brussel sprouts...but your recipe sounds so good I might have to try them!

Mary said...

I'm going to try these this evening. They sound delicious and Bob loves Brussels Sprouts. I hope the new year brings you continued health and happiness. Blessings...Mary

Bo said...

I never liked brussel sprouts until I had them roasted.

Michael Toa said...

love brussels sprouts and with parmesan? yum!!
I have to go back to the gym soon... :(
Happy New Year to you.

Ali said...

Ditto what Bo said.

They have to be seasoned and roasted juuuust right. I would totally eat these.

Jennifurla said...

I so agree about roasting, it adds such a kick to most any vegetable! I can't believe I didn't find this out sooner!

Meow said...

Wow, we to just boil them whole and just toss them with butter and pepper, but it's hard to find the tiny sprouts since most at the grocery stores are huge. This dish may actually allow me to cook brussels sprouts even when I can't find the tiny ones! Thanks!

Rosemary said...

Shredding or chopping brussel sprouts seems like a wonderful idea . . . just picked up some at the store today and found your simple and wonderful suggestion. Trying tonight.
