Roasted Brussel Sprouts
They are very easy to make and have on hand as a healthy snack.
Peel the outer leaves and cut the ends off a couple pounds of brussel sprouts.
You can feed the leaves to your hens, it will make them happy.
Set the oven to 400 and line a heavy duty cookie sheet with foil, spray with nonstick cooking spray.
Cut the sprouts in half and put on the pan all crowded but single layer.
Drizzle them with olive oil, sea salt and a little lemon juice.
The amount depends on your taste, I put enough oil on them so they look shiny but not enough that they are swimming in it. Same with the salt. I use about a tablespoon of the lemon juice.
When we lived in Turkey I learned that anything from cucumbers to eggplant to chick peas taste great with olive oil, salt and a little lemon juice.
Roast them for about 30-35 minutes. Give them a stir every 10 minutes or so. They kind of smell bad while roasting, unlike the way the taste which is very delicious.
