1lb brussel sprouts
2 tbsp avocado oil
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
¼ tsp cayenne powder
Preheat oven to 425* Wash brussel sprouts thoroughly, especially if they’ve just come from the farmer’s stand. Chop off ends where the stock is, allowing the leaves to break apart.
Once finished, place in a bowl and toss with avocado oil, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, and cayenne powder.
Set seasoned sprouts on a baking dish and bake for 10-15 minutes.
Take out and turn them so they can be cooked on each side evenly. Place them back in the oven for another 15-20 minutes or until they have the right crunch for your taste buds.
