Remember when Mom made you eat your veggies? They didn’t have any flavor. The texture was weird. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Here’s a flavorful way to get your family to eat their Brussels sprouts and enjoy them! Adding veggies to your diet will help you out immensely on your fitness journey. Even better? Getting your family to eat their veggies happily will set them up for future successful eating!
Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Garlic Aioli
20 brussels sprouts cut into wedges (I used the 1 lb bag from Trader Joe’s)
salt & pepper
6 Tbsp mayonnaise
1/4 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp finely chopped flat leaf parsley
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place brussels sprouts on a baking sheet and drizzle with oil. Crack some fresh salt & pepper to taste and mix around the brussels sprouts on the pan to ensure they all get nicely coated in the oil. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown on at least one side. While the brussels sprouts are roasting, mix together mayonnaise, garlic, parsley and lemon juice. Serve in a ramekin alongside the finished brussels sprouts.
