I rarely return home from the grocery store without some sort of brassica in my basket. This is the second week in a row we have enjoyed brussels sprouts roasted simply with a bit of parmesan finished with a squeeze of lemon. The cheese gives the dish a salty-meatiness and the lemon provides a balancing freshness. The dish could accompany a standard main course or stand on its own topped with a fried egg.

As one of the great 20th-century photographers, Edward Weston had an expansive 40-year career that established him as a innovative an influential master.

"Cabbage Leaf" was constructed during a time when Weston had a number of solo exhibitions. He did a series of abstract images of shells exploring their curving lines and fluid shapes. The series prompted him to continue his investigation with a collection of vegetable still-life images, from which "Cabbage Leaf" heralded.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Lemon & Parmesan
Serves 4

500 grams (about 5 cups) Brussels sprouts, trimmed & quartered
2 tablespoons butter
pinch of chili powder
freshly ground black pepper + sea salt
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
lemon wedge

Preheat over to 200 degrees C. (about 400 degrees F.).

In an oven safe dish, lay the brussels sprouts in a single layer. Chop the butter into small cubes and evenly distribute over the sprouts. Cover with a light dusting of chili powder, black pepper and sea salt and a thin carpet of Parmesan cheese.

Place in oven and roast for 25-30 minutes until the cheese has melted and the edges of the sprouts begin to brown. Remove from the oven and immediately squeeze over the fresh lemon. Serve warm.
