Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pecans

To go with our pierogi for dinner, I tried another recipe for roasted brussels sprouts. We really love brussels sprouts when they are prepared well.

This certainly was preparing them well. This was absolutely delicious and so easy to make. I got some pre-washed pre-trimmed baby brussels sprouts from Wegmans so all I had to do was dump them onto the baking sheet. Perfect!

2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
1 cup pecans, roughly chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
Kosher salt and black pepper

Heat oven to 400° F. On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss the Brussels sprouts, pecans, oil, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Turn the Brussels sprouts cut-side down.

Roast until golden and tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

We've had the same conversation in our kitchen about brussel sprouts as well. Prepared right, they are awesome!

I'll have to bookmark this recipe. We have two rows of them planted in our garden that will all come ripe at the same time!
