We admit it. Brussels sprouts aren't the prettiest foods ever to grow out of the ground. But they are so delicious when they're cooked the right way and make a great side dish. This simple recipe highlights their natural flavors by brightening it up with fresh lemon juice.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pound Brussels sprouts
  • 1 small lemon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon shaved parmesan cheese
  • Chopped parsley

Directions

Trim the ends of the Brussels sprouts, and slice them in half, peeling away any bad leaves.

Add the Brussels to a large mixing bowl with 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

Cut the lemon in half. Squeeze half of the juice over the Brussels and mix.

Place the Brussels on a parchment lined baking sheet so it is a single even layer. Bake them at 400 degrees F for 40 minutes, until tender, mixing once.

Serve the baked Brussels with parmesan and parsley. Slice up the remaining lemon and top for garnish.
