Brussels sprouts are now in peak season and you can find them fresh everywhere.

- 1 pound of fresh brussels sprouts cleaned and cut
- 1/2 pound of peeled boiler onions
- 3 teaspoons of olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of coarse sea salt
- 1 teaspoon of ground black pepper

Preparation time: 30 minutes. This recipe for grilled brussels sprouts and onions serves 4-6 guests. Approximate cost per person is less than $1.50 depending on the price of the ingredients at your local supermarket. You will need an electric or gas oven, a cookie sheet or oven tray, a chopping block, a strainer, and a knife.
Start by cleaning the brussels sprouts with running water and cutting the end as well as removing those leaves that don’t look good. Is like cleaning a cabbage though brussels sprouts are small. Clean and peel the onions and place both on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper and garlic. Grill inside the oven using medium flame for 10 minutes or until the veggies and the onions are roasted.
This process is very easy and quick, you can serve the grilled brussels spouts and onions as a side dish, as an appetizer and also add to pasta. You will be surprised how good the taste is and I am sure you family will love them too.
