    Here we toss nutty roasted sprouts with a quick sun-dried tomato pesto.


    • 1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
    • 5 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    • 7 tablespoons water, divided
    • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, soft; not oil-packed or reconstituted and chopped
    • 1 medium clove garlic, chopped
    • 1 tablespoon pine nuts, toasted
    • 2 teaspoons red-wine vinegar
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 1 tablespoon shredded Parmesan cheese


    Step 1
    Preheat oven to 400°F.
    Step 2
    Toss Brussels sprouts with 2 teaspoons oil, salt and pepper. Place on a rimmed baking sheet and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon water. Roast for 10 minutes. Stir and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon water. Continue roasting until tender, about 10 minutes more.
    Step 3
    Meanwhile, place the remaining 3 teaspoons oil and 5 tablespoons water in a food processor; add sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, pine nuts, vinegar and oregano and process until a rough pesto forms. Stir in Parmesan. Toss the Brussels sprouts with the pesto.
