This delicious seasonal vegetable becomes sweet and nutty when browned. For the best flavor and texture, make the dish just before serving.


  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 pints brussels sprouts (2 pounds total), trimmed and halved lengthwise

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add brussels sprouts, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring frequently, until caramelized, 8 to 10 minutes. Add 1/3 cup water and cook until evaporated, about 2 minutes. Add lemon juice and toss to coat. Serve immediately.
