Okay, Brussel Sprouts. I’ll give you another try.

So yesterday I asked my Facebook friends to suggest Brussels sprout recipes. What resulted was a deluge of recipes, one after another, all unique to the people suggesting them! Woah! I had no idea that brussels sprouts were so popular these days!



I associate brussels sprouts to being boiled, soggy, and having a horrible smell (a la my childhood). But the truth is…I’ve wanted to try them for quite some time now. And voil√°! Yesterday I did. Behold, I give you…my first recipe for brussels sprouts.



Roasted Brussel Sprouts Recipe


  • 1 container brussel sprouts
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp-1 tsp salt
  • optional: 1/2 tsp minced garlic (or garlic powder)



  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Clean and cut brussels sprouts. If you’re not sure how to do this, check out this handy little video that I found on YouTube. (ps. it’s not mine!)
  • Put cleaned, prepared brussels sprouts in gallon-sized ziploc bag. Pour in remaining ingredients (olive oil, salt, pepper, and optional garlic). Shake to evenly distribute.
  • Put brussels sprouts on foil-lined pan and roast in oven for 30-45 minutes, shaking pan every 5-7 minutes.
  • Brussels sprouts should be brown- don’t worry, you haven’t burned them!
All ready to be cooked!
