Serves 4 -5
24 oz fresh Brussels sprouts, cleaned and trimmed
2 tbsp unflavored coconut or avocado oil
1 tsp coarse salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/8 tsp garlic powder
a pinch of ground red pepper
1/2 cup shaved or shredded Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 425F.
Trim Brussels sprouts and discard any yellow outer leaves.
Cook brussels sprouts in a large pot of boiling water for 10 minutes or until tender. Drain well and take care to pat them very dry.
Place on a sheet pan* and gently "smash" each one. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder and red pepper. Then gently toss to coat them evenly.
Roast for approximately 15 - 20 minutes or so, until they're charred to your liking. Cover with Parmesan cheese and broil until cheese begins to brown (about 2 minutes). Enjoy immediately or at room temperature.
* Line your sheet pan with parchment paper for easier clean-up.
