Roasted Brussels Sprout Chips with Lemon and ParmigianoThursday, December 16, 2010
The inspiration for this recipe comes from Marlowe. Chef Jennifer Puccio’s Crispy Brussels Sprout Chips with Meyer Lemon and Sea Salt were love at first sight. She separates the individual leaves of the Brussels sprouts, then flash-fries them to a delicate, light crisp. A spray of lemon juice, fragrant Meyer lemon zest, and sprinkle of sea salt are all that’s needed to brighten up these “chips.”
For my at-home remake version, I opted to roast the Brussels sprouts rather than fry them. A tip on separating the leaves — I found that the easiest way to do so was to keep trimming the bottom stem as I peeled away the layers. This was the most time consuming part, but once it is done, the rest is a breeze.
Top the roasted Brussels sprout chips with some lemon zest and parmigiano, and this is one addictive snack! Salty, crispy, flavorful, and best of all, a healthy dose of vegetables
