Roasting this vegetable brings out a deep flavor for a filling side dish that’s fun to make. This method will caramelize the Brussels sprouts, transforming them from bright green to a rich, brown color with a nutty flavor.
1 ½ pounds Brussels sprouts, outer
leaves removed, bottoms trimmed, cut in half
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons finely chopped shallots
½ cup chopped sundried tomato
2 tablespoons fresh thyme or other herbs
Pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper
1. Blanch the Brussels sprouts in a pot with 2 quarts of boiling, salted water for 2 minutes.
2. Drain, refresh in cold water and blot dry for roasting.

4. Add the herbs and season with salt and pepper before serving.
