Brussels Sprouts Oven-roasted.

20 – 24 small brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half lengthwise
1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, plus more to toss
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 200C/400F.
Toss Brussels sprouts with oil, salt and pepper on a rimmed baking sheet and roast, stirring once or twice, until deep golden brown, crisp outside and tender inside.
- 30 to 35 minutes.
The leaves that are loose will be especially brown and crispy.
Transfer to a bowl and serve.
Verdict: delicious!

Optional:
Put the water and salt in a saucepan (it’s really important to add enough salt) and bring to a fast, rolling boil.
Toss in the sprouts, cover for 1 minute, until the water returns to the boil, then uncover and continue to cook for 3-6 minutes (depending on size), until the sprouts are cooked through, but still have a slight bite.
Drain very well.
After - as above: Toss...

1 teaspoon honey
After oven:
