Brussels sprouts with parmesan & almonds

These are sprouts for people who don’t like sprouts. They are crunchy, the garlic and parmesan works wonders and it’s hard to get this wrong. The recipe is from my friend Marc – one of the people who can really cook I mention in the about section.


1kg relatively small sprouts
2-3 cloves of garlic depending on how garlicky you can face them
3 tbs olive oil (I use light & mild again)
garlic salt (normal salt will do)

Clean sprouts and cut them in half. In a bowl, mix olive oil, garlic and some garlic salt. Mix in the cut up brussels. Let them sit for a 1/2 an hour (I tried to let them marinate overnight). Place them on a baking tray, stick them in the oven at 350 degrees until they brown slightly. Flip them over and let them brown on the other side. This shouldn’t take more than 1/2 an hour. Take them out and place them in a bowl. Grate some fresh parmesan over them. For special occasions add almond flakes. Mix and serve.
