Readers of this blog will realize that I like having a lot of small plates. Playing around with ingredients in our larder a while ago I stumbled upon this easy and delicious recipe. It works wonderfully as an appetizer or as a side dish.
In a 9 x 9" baking pan,
fill the bottom with a single layer of brussel sprouts.
add about 2 Tbs sesame oil and shake to coat the sprouts,
sprinkle on about 1 Tbs kosher salt; shake.
Bake at 400°F for about an hour or until browned on the outside and soft and buttery inside.
Because the pan is on the small size, other things can be baked in the oven at the same time to efficiently use energy. You can cook it at 350° but it may take a bit longer and doesn't brown as nicely. Feel free to experiment!
