Roughly chop the capers

2 Cook & mash the potatoes:

Add the diced potatoes and chopped garlic to the pot of boiling water and cook 16 to 18 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot.

Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

3 Roast the brussels sprouts:

While the potatoes cook, place the halved brussels sprouts on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer.
