Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Pull off any outer dry leaves of the Brussel sprouts, cut the bottom off and slice sprouts lengthwise.
  2. Place the sprouts on a baking sheet and toss with olive oil. Roast until tender and caramelized, about 20-30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan bring chicken stock and butter to a boil. Add couscous and simmer, covered, until couscous is soft and liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes.
  4. Add cheddar and Parmesan and mix until cheese is melted. Fold in roasted sprouts and season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
