Easy Brussels Sprouts Ingredients:
1 lb Brussels sprouts
2-3 tablespoons coconut oil
sea salt to taste
¼ cup toasted shredded coconut
Preheat your oven to 400°F.
Cut the Brussels in half, then put them in a mixing bowl.
Melt the coconut oil and toss with Brussels and sea salt, then spread in an even layer onto a baking sheet.
Toast for 10-15 minutes until soft and golden brown. It may be shorter or longer depending on your oven temperature. They’re best when very tender and a dark golden brown, so use that as your gauge.
Remove from oven, sprinkle with the shredded (toasted) coconut and serve immediately.
