  • 1 lb. brussels sprouts trimmed and sliced lengthwise
  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 tsp. kosher salt divided
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. tahini such as Soom
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon zest plus 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
  • 1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves finely chopped
  • 2 pitted Medjool dates finely chopped


  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Toss brussels in oil, 1/2 tsp. of the salt, and 1/4 tsp. of the black pepper; arrange evenly on a baking sheet, avoiding overlap. Roast 10 to 12 minutes, until golden-brown. Transfer to a bowl or serving platter.
