This Easy Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe has no fail instructions! Roast some up with your favorite seasonings or top with your sauce of choice!
While you may think this is a fall or winter vegetable, I love eating them all year round. They are on plenty of restaurant menus and are all the rage in food websites and magazines.
A few weeks ago I even ordered them off a happy hour menu. They were crispy and coated with a coriander yogurt sauce. Sitting right next to a martini, they were heavenly. Now who ever would have thought?
Are Brussels Sprouts good for you?
Lately I have been counting calories so Brussels sprouts are a good vegetable to choose. They have a ton of nutrients and fiber but are also very filling. This vegetable is a really good choice when you are looking to eat healthy.
Let me warn you though. It is not the best ingredient to cook when it comes to making your kitchen or house smell good. But don't let that deter you from roasting them because once you take a pan of them out of the oven and taste them, you will make them again and again. And you can always bake some Cuban Roasted Chicken or a bake a batch of Lemon Olive Oil Muffins to make your kitchen smell good.
I roast a big pan and then love to use them in salads. Last night my dinner consisted of a big Greek Chicken Salad topped with warm roasted Brussels sprouts. Doesn't that sound delicious?
What ingredients are needed to make Roasted Brussels Sprouts?
To make this hearty vegetable, all you need is some olive oil, brussels sprouts and seasonings. I like to spice things up sometimes and add garlic or onion powder, fresh herbs or even a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. I then roast them until they are tender and the outside leaves are crispy.
I beg you to try a pan of these. They are not the soggy vegetable of the past where they were boiled until mushy and all moms made their kids eat them. No, these are the new trendy ones. I promise you'll love them.
What sauces go well with this recipe?
This is a very basic recipe and to make things interesting you should try either dipping these brussels sprouts or topping them with a delicious sauce.
Here are some sauces I recommend:
