Simple Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe

(DrEddyClinic News) This classic recipe is the perfect, minimal-effort side dish for your next dinner, holiday party, or potluck. Just toss the sprouts in a little oil, salt, and pepper, and roast until pleasantly crispy and aromatic; serve with toothpicks or appetizer forks. You can steam or even boil Brussels sprouts, but they may develop a bitter, sulfurous flavor if overcooked.


Roast them only until they’re lightly toasted and some of the leaves have curled back and turned dark brown. This brings out the complex, savory flavors that make Brussels sprouts truly shine. If you think this recipe still needs a little more flavor, sprinkle your sprouts with a minced clove or two of raw garlic right after taking them out of the oven, turning them to evenly distribute. The heat from fresh-from-the-oven sprouts will tone down the piquancy of the raw garlic and leave you with a delicious, fragrant dish.

Brussels sprouts are an excellent, low-calorie source of vitamin C and K.[1] Better yet, cruciferous vegetables like Brussels sprouts contain compounds that activate the immune cells in the gut that help keep the intestinal walls healthy.[2] Strong intestinal walls are essential to optimal nutrient absorption and immune function.[3] Their beneficial effects also extend to reducing the risk of developing serious health conditions like heart disease[4] and protecting DNA from damage.[5]

It’s no secret that I absolutely love Brussels sprouts. When grown and cooked right, they are slightly sweet and a little nutty. Divine. In case you are wondering what I mean by grown right, Brussels sprouts should stay on the stalk until two frosts have passed. It’s the frosts that let them develop that slightly sweet flavor.

Now, roasted Brussels sprouts? Awesome. The roasting brings out a wonderful nuttiness. But usually, roasting can take the better part of an hour to cook with certain methods. That’s just too long for me. Call me impatient, but I value time-saving measures.

That’s exactly why I started cooking them on the stove. But I had a thought … if I spread the sprouts out on a baking sheet instead of crowding them in a small casserole, then they cook faster. So I did, and they were perfect. The nuttiness came through without having to wait forever for them.

roasted-brussels-sprouts-3Seasoning matters when you make anything. These are tossed with just a little balsamic vinegar and olive oil, with a sprinkling of salt and pepper. It’s simple, easy and perfect. The flavors complement the sprouts without overwhelming them.

1 container Brussels sprouts (about 1½ cups)
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Remove the ends of the Brussels sprouts and any bruised outer leaves. Halve the sprouts and place in a large bowl. Add olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper and toss to coat. Pour the Brussels sprouts onto the baking sheet in a single layer. Be careful not to crowd them.
Cook for 10-12 minutes, stirring once, about halfway through.
