READY IN: 45mins




  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash veggies and **DRY THOUROUGHLY**. You want them to be bone dry, or they will not caramelize. They will steam.
  • Slice broccoli stems into 1/4 inch thick rounds, cut florets in bite sized pieces. I like to have as many flat sides as possible so they get as caramelized as can be. Remove the core end of the brussels sprouts and slice them in half.
  • Place veggies in a single layer on a parchment lined sheet tray with sides. Toss with 2 T of the olive oil, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Roast in the oven for 20-30 minutes depending on how crisp you like them. Stir halfway through cooking time. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly.
  • Whisk together the remaining 2 T oil, honey, lemon juice and zest, dijon, cayenne and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Toss with the veggies and cheese if using. Serve immediately or allow to come to room temperature.
