Trim & cut brussel sprouts in half lengthwise. In a bowl, toss the sprouts in a little olive oil, sea salt, garlic powder & ground black pepper. Place sprouts on a baking sheet and roast in a preheated 400 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes, until brown and crispy. They will be soft and sweet inside.
Trim brussel sprouts, cut very large ones in half, otherwise keep whole. In a large saucepan, cover the brussel sprouts with cold water and add a dash of sea salt. Cover and bring to boil. Uncover and let boil down until all the water is gone. Add 2+ pats butter and ground black pepper and stir the brussel sprouts on medium high heat until butter is brown. A softer nuttier taste than roasted.
