Brussels Sprout Chips Recipe
If there is any recipe that is going to turn your child into a Brussels Sprout lover it is this one. These Brussels Sprouts Chips taste delicious and have a crispy texture that kids love.
- 450g (1 lb) Brussels Sprouts
- 2 tbsp Olive Oil
Pre-heat oven to 175C / 350F
Remove a large piece of the stem/core from each sprout, using a sharp paring knife. I find it easiest to cut a triangle from each side. The outer leaves with automatically fall off.
Peel away each layer of the sprouts, taking care not to rip the leaves. Continue until you get to the core. As you get closer to the middle, cut a thin slice off the stem at the bottom to help release each layer.
Add the leaves to a large mixing bowl and add the olive oil. Gently massage the oil into the leaves. Place the leaves, in a single layer, on the baking tray. Although not necessary, placing all of the leaves facing down on the baking tray (see picture) helps to ensure they cook more evenly. Some leaves may stick together after coating in oil so just check that you are adding only a single layer to the tray.

Bake for 10-15 minutes., until the leaves are lightly brown and crisp.
Season to taste. (Do not add salt if serving to a baby / young child)
