The Secret to Liking Brussels Sprouts: Roast Them

Bland boiling and other lack-luster brussels sprouts recipes have earned them an infamous reputation from many children and adults alike. But the mini cabbage-like veggies can actually be delicious with one easy trick: roast them.

Try It At Home: Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Preheat oven to 400°F. In a large bowl, mix 2 cups fresh (or completely de-thawed frozen) brussels sprouts with 2-3 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 tsp ground black pepper, and 1/4 tsp of sea salt.  Pour mixture onto baking sheet and roast for 30-40 minutes, shaking tray (or moving sprouts with spatula) every 10 minutes to make sure that they are evenly browned. The brussels sprouts will be done when they are brown crisped on the outside.

Nutrition Highlight: Related to broccoli and cauliflower, brussels sprouts are very high in vitamin C and vitamin K.

  1. My new favorite way to cook them is to bake at 350 degrees (for about 40 minutes) F and to cut them in half before cooking so that more surface area is exposed. I prefer to add the salt last (after cooking) so that more of it is tasted and less can be added. Add minced garlic when the there is 15 minutes of bake time left. Enjoy!-Andi, “Here’s the Dish”
