Wash produce before use


Prep the vegetables

Heat the oven to 425°F.

  • Trim the ends from the Brussels sprouts. Cut the Brussels sprouts lengthwise into quarters. 
  • Scrub or peel the carrot and trim the ends; cut the carrot on the diagonal into ¼-inch-thick slices.
  • Peel the onion and cut lengthwise into quarters. 
  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
  • Using a peeler, remove the zest in wide strips from the lemon, being careful to remove only the outermost yellow layer and leave behind the bitter white pith. Cut the zest into thin strips. Juice half the lemon and set aside the juice for finishing the vegetables; save the remaining lemon half for another use. [Remove the zest from both lemons and juice ½ lemon; save the remaining 1½ lemons for another use.]
  • Set aside half the cabbage for finishing the vegetables. 

In a large bowl, combine the Brussels sprouts, carrot, onion, garlic, lemon zest, Turkish spice blend, half the cabbage, and 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Season generously with salt and pepper and toss to coat. On one end of a sheet pan, spread the vegetables in an even layer.


Prep the sausages; roast the vegetables and sausages

  • Pat the sausages dry with a paper towel; prick in a few places with a fork, if desired.

Place the sausages on the other end of the sheet pan. Roast, stirring the vegetables and turning the sausages halfway through, until the vegetables are lightly browned and tender and the sausages are browned and cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes.
When the vegetables and sausages are almost done, prepare the parsley.


Prep the parsley; finish the vegetables

  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves. Set aside half for garnish.
Remove the pan from the oven. Add the remaining cabbage, half the parsley, and 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] lemon juice to the vegetables and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the vegetables to individual plates and top with the sausages and a spoonful of the romesco. Garnish with the remaining parsley and serve any remaining romesco on the side.
