90 calories/serving


12 Brussels sprouts 300 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 15 mL
1 tsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 1/4 lemon


  1. Prepare the sprouts by peeling off the wilted outer leaves and piercing the core of the vegetable with the tip of a small knife. This allows even cooking of the vegetable and prevents bitterness.
  2. Place the sprouts in a baking dish, preferably deep. Season the sprouts with salt and pepper and drizzle a reasonable amount of olive oil or according to taste. Drizzle lemon juice. Cover with aluminum foil and put into the oven at 350°F (180°C) for 30 minutes.
  3. Serve plain or drizzled with high-quality olive oil. If the sprouts are not sufficiently cooked, leave them for 10 more minutes. Before putting into in the oven, add a bit of lemon zest if desired.
