Brussels Sprouts Simplified

1 lb Brussels Sprouts

2 Tbsp oil (Canola or Vegetable)

1 Tbsp garlic salt

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

  1. Wash and trim off the ends of Brussels and discard ends.
  2. Cut Brussels into quarters.
  3. Spread Brussels on a baking sheet and drizzle with oil and garlic salt and toss.
  4. Roast for 15 minutes and enjoy!

Tip:  Parchment paper is your friend when roasting veggies or anything on a baking sheet, put it on the baking sheet then add food.  Easy clean up!

Other cooking options;

Roasting for 15 minutes will keep the nutrients but give you a little crunch-caramelization on some.  If you are in the mood for crispier they can go longer but will lose some nutritional value and appearance but still taste good.  

Sautéing in a pan, cut Brussels in thin strips, oil and garlic salt work with this as well just saute until desired doneness.

Add a mix in like one of these to enjoy them even more; 

  • Crispy bacon
  • Drizzle of balsamic vinegar
  • Shaved parmesan cheese
  • Other hearty roasted veggies like carrots & mushrooms

I had Brussels when I was younger boiled and I did not like that at all.  A few years ago I ate Roasted Brussels and now I can’t get enough of them!  I know once you have a bad experience with food, it is hard to try again. 

You can do it 😉
