Roast Brussels Sprouts

If a worldwide brussel sprout eating contest existed, I guarantee you all that I would win it every year! Brussies are a serious business for me; I eat them almost every day. I buy stalks of them fresh from the farmers' market when they are in season and have bags of frozen in the freezer at all times. Even when I make a family sized batch for dinner, I must summon my best mom behavior to share with everyone because all I want to do is hog every last one for myself!

The apple doesn't fall to far from the tree because my son, Kenya, has become an major brussel sprout lover. He asks for them at least once a week, and so I've been working on new ways to prepare them beyond my signature Shredded Brussel Sprouts with Lemon and Poppy Seeds, which I make every Thanksgiving. This roasted recipe, with grated parmesan, toasted almonds and a touch of lemon is such a new hit in my house, it may have turned Chloe into the latest brussie fanatic!

    When you freeze your fresh brussel sprouts do you blanch them first or freeze them raw?

    Brussels sprouts are pretty magical. Roasting is my favorite cooking method. I love how crisp and caramelized the outside gets.

    This is almost exactly how we roast our broccoli and it is so delicious! I only remember brussel sprouts from childhood and they were not good. I have been wanting to try the real thing so this looks like a great place to start!

    Do you ever roast the whole stalk? Do you eat the 'trunk' itself if so, or just the buds?

    • Catherine

      I usually buy the whole stalk and cut them off. I've never even thought about roasting the entire stalk. I don't think it's edible.

    Will you be posting that shredded brussel sprout recipe in time for Thanksgiving? Sounds delicious! If not, this recipe has just been added to our holiday menu. Yum!

    Every day???? Wow. I could eat maybe mushrooms or asparagus almost every day but brussel sprouts not so much. I've never roasted them like this though and I'll be giving it a try for sure.

    Love that your son loves brussel sprouts so much! It's never caught on as a kid-favorite at my house but quickly disappears off the grown-ups' plates. Haven't ever roasted them like this so I'll have to give it a try!

    I bought a fresh stalk a while back and froze a bunch whole! Anyone have a suggestion as to how to prepare them now that they are frozen??

      I feel like you could defrost them and cook in this preparation.

    I love brussel sprouts!! My favorite preparation is to roast them with olive oil, s and p then in the last ten minutes, drizzle with maple syrup. Delicious!

    Any chance you will share your brussel sprout recipe with lemon and poppyseeds. That sounds so good! We just roasted some tonight with a little soy sauce, sesame oil, touch of agave nectar, walnuts, and raisins - a new adventure for us but absolutely delicious. Can't wait to try the one you have here as well.

    Can I make this recipe with frozen brussel sprouts? Do I just let them thaw? I don't know much about them, since I haven't eaten them since my mom made me and I didn't like them. LOL so I need help!

    My favorite is to cook them in a skillet with honey butter, red chili flakes and salt. Sweet and salty and savoury!

    How old were your kid when you first gave them brussels sprouts?

  • Suzanne Suzio

    Stupid question but why is it important to roast them cut side down?

    leave a comment

    • Kathy

      It allows the cut side to get all brown &amp; yummy. It won't really hurt if they aren't all facing the right way, though.

    These were AMAZING! I could have eaten the whole thing. I am shocked that my kids still don't like them, even prepared this way. Thanks for another delicious recipe!

    Gosh, I LOVE roast Brussels sprouts! I just made them for the first time and they were delicious. I used to hate them and really only started eating them when I moved to .... Brussels. :)

    The only thing I find annoying is to prepare them.The ones I always have in my veggy box often have these tiny creatures all over and I need to take one layer off after the other till there are none left. Do you ever have this problem? If not, I will have to look for them elsewhere.

      vinegar will help! place the sprouts into a large bowl. pour about 1/4 c. cheap vinegar over the sprouts and mix around (as you would do for a salad). after a few minutes, next add warm water and let them soak for a few more minutes. the creatures float to the top (or settle on the bottom).

    I have always liked brussel sprouts that others have prepared, but never ventured to make them on my own. Tried this out and I love them so much, I now have a bag of sprouts in my fridge at all times! Thank you!

    Just made this,I did not add the almonds (don't have in my pantry) or the cheese. Just tossed them with olive oil, garlic powder and black pepper. They are pretty good, waiting for my son to wake up and have his lunch. Hopefully he will like them also.

    I agree...I love brussel sprouts too and haven't had them for years. Made them tonight - so delicious - no one else really liked them but I ate them all up. May try the maple syrup option and see if my kids like that one. Thanks!

    These are SO good. I love them and have to be careful I don't eat them all. My son isn't fond of them yet but does help me pick out the brussels sprouts at farmer's market. Thanks for another delicious and easy recipe.
