Roasted Brussel Sprouts 

One of the most celebrated vegetables of the century, the Brussel Sprout.  Once hated and mocked by boomers, it’s back and whit a vengeance.  This dish is very bright and floral, from the lemon zest, but savory and satisfying from the Parmesan cheese, the sprouts balance it out with an earthy light bitterness that blends in harmony.
