Roasted Brussels Sprouts

The veggie that kids love to hate, brussels sprouts. While the bitter taste is certainly an acquired one, I love these little things. Brussels sprouts are high in fiber and protein and contain a generous dose of vitamin A, folacin, potassium and calcium. They are naturally low in calories and fill you up without filling you out. This is an easy recipe and makes a great healthy side dish.

Ingredients:

  • Brussels sprouts
  • Olive oil
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • Sea salt
  • Additional seasoning (optional)

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees

2. Wash brussels sprouts. Cut tops off and peel first layer of leaves off. Place sprouts in a mixing bowl.

3. Mix olive oil, salt and pepper with sprouts until thuroughly coated.

4. Sray a pan with non-stick cooking spray and lay brussels sprouts on pan.

5. Bake sprouts for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown on top.

6. Remove pan and transfer to serving bowl. Top with parmesan cheese and serve.

  1. These look so good! I had never tried Brussels sprouts until probably last year. I’ve always thought they would be bad because they get a bad rap, but they’re really tasty- especially roasted 🙂

  2. I used to HATE brussels sprouts… then this year i had an epiphany and realized they can be delicious if cooked properly. and now whenever my school’s salad bar has them I eat them (though sometimes they’re undercooked and kind of super bitter, but sometimes they’re just perfect)

    roasted are my fave though 🙂

  3. I’ve actually never tried brussels sprouts! I love sauteeing my veggies though 🙂 Favorite way to eat them!

  4. I love roasted brussels sprouts! They’re perfect just by themselves with a little EVO and s&p! My other fave veggie side dish is roasted broccoli.

  5. When I was little I hated brussel sprouts with a passion, but once I got into healthy eating I tried them again and LOVED them! Roasted is the best way to eat them! YUM! 😀

  6. I am in love with Brussels Sprouts…I seriously have them everyday and love enjoying them roasted with marinara sauce and nutritional yeast…so delicious. Have a great night!
