  • 2 Pounds Brussels Sprouts – trimmed and cut in half if large
  • 2 TBS Olive Oil
  • scant ¼ tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • ¾ tsp Sea Salt

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F*. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy clean up.
  2. In a large bowl toss brussels sprouts with oil. Season with cayenne, salt and pepper. Toss again to thoroughly coat. Transfer to prepared baking sheet in a single layer.

Continue to roast the sprouts for 5-10 minutes, or until tender and desired level of caramelization is achieved. Remove from oven and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Recipe Notes

*To toast hazelnuts: Roast nuts in a single layer on a sheet pan in the oven at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes or so. Drape a large tea towel inside a bowl and transfer nuts to towel. Wrap up towel to form a bundle and let nuts steam for 1 minute. Rub the nuts in the towel to remove loose skin. Don’t worry if all the skin doesn’t completely come off. Discard skin, allow nuts to cool completely and use in your favorite dishes!
