This recipe was a Pinterest find from the blog Costa Kitchen. The photographs looked so delicious that I ended up making the recipe the same day I found it, and I have a feeling it won’t be the last time. It was a breeze to make and tasted incredible – Nick got out a fork because eating them by hand wasn’t happening fast enough.
I made just a few tweaks to the recipe: no parsley in the aioli because we didn’t have any, and olive oil instead of canola oil because I felt like it. Next time I’ll plan ahead a bit more and pick up parsley with my brussels sprouts, but I find it hard to believe they could be any better.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Garlic Aioli
from Costa Kitchen
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.
