Smashed Brussels Sprouts

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound brussels sprouts
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pinch garlic powder
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Trim brussels sprouts and remove any yellow outer leaves. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add brussels sprouts, cover, and steam until tender (about 10 minutes.) Drain well. Toss brussels sprouts with olive oil, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Spread out evenly on baking sheet. Use a mason jar or other heavy object to press brussels sprouts into flat patties. Roast in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Cover with Parmesan cheese and broil until cheese starts to brown; about 2 minutes. Yum!
