People typically turn up their noses at Brussels sprouts. But carrots, capers, and parsley take Maria's Roasted Brussels Sprouts With Crispy Capers and Carrots recipe to another level, flavorwise.


Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 18 minutes
Makes about 12 servings

Ingredients:
2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
1 1/2 cups (1/4-inch) diagonally cut carrots
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
Cooking spray
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup well-drained capers
1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 450º.

2. Combine Brussels sprouts, carrots, and 3 tablespoons oil in a medium bowl, tossing to coat. Spread on large roasting pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.

3. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil and butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add capers; fry 3 minutes or until brown and crisp. With slotted spoon, transfer capers to paper towels to drain. Set aside.

4. Combine Brussels sprout mixture and capers in medium bowl. Sprinkle with parsley, salt, and pepper; toss gently to mix. (Serving size: 1/2 cup)
