The Australian-born photographer admits that being behind the camera —and not in the kitchen— is her preferred way to spend time. But creating picture-perfect portraits can definitely make you work up an appetite, and this recipe for Brussels sprouts are not just healthy, but delicious.

Since Anne and her husband Kel recently relocated to NYC, they’ve discovered the bounty, beauty, and variety of NYC foods. One place that Anne Geddes frequents is Zabar’s when she needs to pick up a quick dinner or start her day with a delicious nosh. “Bagels are most definitely one of my favorite New York City foods,” says Anne. “Zabar’s is somewhere I frequent very often. Their roasted Brussels sprouts are delicious! Why would you need to cook?”

In case you do feel like cooking, you can always roast your own Brussels sprouts right at home. All you need are a handful of ingredients that are probably already in your pantry, and some condiments to add some additional flavor.
