and...MANCHEGO is super fun to say!
We go through a costco bag of brussels sprouts on a weekly basis, but this recipe might bump us up to 2 bags per week!
2 lbs brussels sprouts, halved lengthwise
3 Tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper
1/3 cup sliced almonds
1 lemon zested, plus 1 Tbs juice
1 oz shaved Manchego
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the sprouts with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Arrange sprouts, cut side down and roast for 10 minutes. Remove baking sheet from the oven and sprinkle sprouts with almonds. Continue to roast until brussels sprouts are crisp-tender and beginning to brown (5-10 minutes). Once they have reached that point, remove from the oven and transfer to a bowl.
Add lemon zest and juice to the bowl. Add 1/2 the cheese and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Top with remaining cheese and serve.
