 2 lbs Brussels sprouts, trimmed and blemished outer leaves discarded, quartered
 3 tbsp olive oil, divided
 1 tsp paprika
 ½ tsp cumin
 ½ tsp cinnamon
 3 large leeks, white and light green parts only, ends trimmed
 juice of one lemon
 ½ cup fresh grated parmesan cheese, optional
 salt + pepper



Arrange oven racks in top and bottom thirds of oven. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Cover 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, combine brussels sprouts, 2 tbsp olive oil, paprika, cumin, & cinnamon until coated. Season generously with salt and pepper and transfer to one of the parchment-lined baking tray. Reserve bowl to mix vegetables in after cooking.

Cut leeks in half lengthwise and rinse inside of leek thoroughly. Lightly brush cut sides of with remaining 1 tbsp of oil.  Season with salt and pepper. Arrange leeks on second baking tray with cut sides down.

Put both baking sheets in the oven, with leeks on bottom shelf, and roast for about 15-20 minutes, until sprouts are golden brown and tender and leeks are softened.

Remove both from oven, chop leeks into 1-inch-wide pieces and toss in a reserved bowl with sprouts.

(For holiday prep, prepare recipe to this point, set aside until ready to serve. When ready to serve, re-warm mixture in oven.)

Add lemon juice and grated parmesan to vegetable mixture and toss until well coated. Season with extra salt and pepper if needed. Transfer to serving platter and enjoy.
