Four Ingredient Brussels


I don’t think we’ve ever posted a more easy recipe. After a busy day of running from work to home to the store to rehearsal and back home again, the last thing I need to do is go get a million ingredients and decode a long new recipe. In my book, it’s best to enjoy complicated recipes on the weekend. So, here we are on a Wednesday night. With four simple ingredients, you’ll have a healthy, tasty, side dish in just over a half hour.

Roasting brussels sprouts brings out a sweet nuttiness that I just can’t resist this time of year. The salty finish makes them a little too easy to eat (I devour them like popcorn). Hey, at least I won’t feel guilty helping myself to seconds if this is on the table!

Four Ingredient Brussels Sprouts
Prep Time: 10 min. Cook Time: 35 min.


20 brussels sprouts, ends cut off and halved
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Preheat oven (or convection oven) to 350°. Place all ingredients on the solid pan (included with oven) and toss until brussels are lightly coated in oil, salt, and pepper. Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden brown. Serve warm!

RawSpiceBar Review & Giveaway!


One of the things I like most about this blog is the opportunity it provides to meet interesting people doing creative things in the culinary world. The good people over at RawSpiceBar are doing just that. RawSpiceBar is a company that provides quality spices directly to your door. With a subscription, you will receive a monthly spice box, each containing spices, recipes, and occasionally other fun stuff related to that month’s theme. We recently tried out their recipe for Za’atar & Pita Crusted Cauliflower.


Yum! It was so easy to make since all the spices for this dish were portioned perfectly for the recipe. I simply dumped the spice blend in with the other ingredients and continued following the recipe. Who knew cauliflower could be so flavorful?

I’m impressed by this small batch spice company. RawSpiceBar sent us an extra monthly box we’d like to share with one of you.
