Easy Roasted Brussel Sprouts

I know roasting is not the most nutritious way to prepare veggies, but WOW how delicious roasted brussel sprout are!  You will need...

- as many brussel sprouts as you'd like
- olive oil
- sea salt or Himalayan
- paprika & cayenne pepper

Begin by washing the sprouts.  I like to soak my veggies in a large bowl of water and about 1/4-1/2 cup white vinegar for a few minutes, then rinse twice with fresh water, drain off all water.  After washing, cut the very base of each sprout off with a paring knife and leave on a towel to absorb some of the water (you don't want the water with them for roasting!).

Next, place them in a bowl and drizzle olive oil over them.  Add salt and spices to taste.  Using a spoon, stir to coat evenly.

Place in a pan intended for oven-use, making sure the sprouts are not too crowded or stacked (you want to roast them, not seam them, so spread them out). 

Place the sprouts in an oven preheated to 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
