Lemon-Glazed Brussels Sprouts

Serves 4

Brussels sprouts get a citrus tang with just a few simple ingredients. If you think you don’t like Brussels sprouts, this easy recipe might change your mind.


  • 1 pound washed Brussels sprouts
  • Zest and juice of one lemon
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Preheat the oven to 450° F.

Blanch or steam the Brussels sprouts. (To blanch, place the Brussels sprouts in salty boiling water for about 3 minutes. Remove and submerge the hot sprouts in ice water to help preserve the bright green color.)

In a separate large bowl mix the zest, lemon juice, olive oil and salt. Add the Brussels sprouts and toss with the dressing. Pour everything onto a foil-lined baking sheet.

Roast in the oven for 15 minutes. Serve hot.
