Roasted Brussels sprouts with Parmesan cheese

If you like Brussels sprouts, you will love these Brussels sprouts. If you don’t like Brussels sprouts, you should try these ones. These Brussels sprouts are not soft and bitter but deliciously crispy and savoury. You could almost serve them as a snack.

When it comes to Brussels sprouts, there are two camps. Either you love them, or you hate them. We then wonder whether they are well prepared. In general, Brussels sprouts are overcooked. Then they become bitter, and we understand that you don’t like them.

We are going to roast these Brussels sprouts in a cast iron pan. This makes them slightly sweeter and also keeps them nice and crunchy.

Just before the Brussels sprouts are ready, sprinkle them with Parmesan cheese and stir in a bit of lemon juice. If you stir-fry them for a while, the cheese will form those golden brown crunchy edges on the Brussels sprouts.
