roasted brussels sprouts

Brussel sprouts may have been your childhood nightmare, but now that you know how to roast them properly, you'll have to change your ways!

  • approx. 1 1/2 lb brussels sprouts
  • 2 1/2 Tbl. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper

1. While the oven is heating up to 400° F cut the brussels sprouts in half & place them in a single layer on a baking sheet
2. Sprinkle the sprouts with the olive oil, salt & pepper, & and toss them with your hands so they're evenly coated
3. When the oven is hot, pop the baking sheet into the oven for 10 minutes
4. After 10 minutes, stir the brussels sprouts around & place them back in the oven for another 10 minutes, or until they're tender & slightly blackened 


  1. Yum. We also like to sprinkler a little Trader Joe's 21Seasoning Salute over the top....and it's easy to throw some carrots and other root vegetables in to make a bigger meal.

  2. Absolutely! Roasting veggies is super easy, and really versatile depending on the spices you use- Trader Joe's 21 Seasoning Salute sounds delicious! As soon as we get our Trader Joe's in Colorado, I'll have to pick some up :)
