food styling | brussel sprouts roasted in truffle oil

decided to tackle brussel sprouts last weekend.  my secret weapon? truffle oil. with just a few drops of truffle oil goodness any mediocre recipe can be transformed into foodie-euphoria. (truffle oil is the movie equivalent of that healing potion in narnia/lord of the rings/harry potter--basically any weird good vs. evil fantasy film--that the hero pours on a wound and suddenly it's healed and 5x better than it was before.)
cut off the ends of the sprouts and halve them.  blanch them in boiling watering and rinse in cold water. add a bit of good olive oil, sea salt—more than usual because brussel sprouts absorb itfresh black pepper, a dash of red pepper flakes, and a tablespoon of truffle oil. toss around in a cast iron pan and then roast in the oven for 30-45 mins at 400 degrees until dark brown and crispy on the outside and soft in the inside. bon appétit.
