Sure, maybe the french fry is the vegan french fry, but roasted brussel sprouts are a near second. And Brussels is really close to France, so it makes sense. I know I don’t shut up about roasted brussels, I’ve blogged about them and they are in VwaV as well as Veganomicon, but they deserve it. They smell like popcorn while they’re roasting and you can kind of mindlessly eat them while watching TV or studying – they are the perfect snack food.
To roast them, preheat the oven to 400 F. Slice off the knobby bottoms and peel off any out of shape leaves. Slice in half, place on a rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and toss to coat. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, flipping once. Easy as pie. Actually, much much much easier than pie.
