Roasted Brussels Sprouts with garlic

brussels sprouts

This is a simple recipe for Brussels sprouts.

You can easily vary the recipe by sprinkling the sprouts with cider vinegar, lemon juice, or tossing in some thyme or roasted chestnuts.

They’re also delicious with pine nuts, which you can either add near the end of cooking or toast separately and toss with the sprouts once they are roasted. Terrific with bacon, too.


  • 500 g Brussels sprouts
  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, to coat bottom of pan
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Trim bottom of Brussels sprouts and crushed the garlic. Mix the sprouts in a bowl with the olive oil, salt, garlic  and pepper.

Pour them on a sheet pan and roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Shake the pan from time to time to brown the sprouts evenly.
Taste, and add more salt and pepper if necessary. Enjoy!

  1. This is a wonderful recipe! I have made this and this is the only way my husband will eat brussel sprouts. The roasting seems to caramelize them taking away the sulphorous taste. I do add rosemary to the this. It has become a treat in our family.


  2. I used to HATE brussel sprouts until I cooked them this way. My mother would always boil them/steam them and there was something about the texture that turned me off. Baked is definitely a better option!

  3. Thanks for stopping by, and glad you liked our post “All About Eggs”! Hope to see you back soon. 🙂

    Love your this recipe on brussel sprouts, by the way! I never know how to make them taste good, so I’ll definitely be giving this a go.

  5. This is right up there with fried Brussels Sprouts! I hope you don’t mind that I featured this recipe on my blog.

  6. Lovely and simple recipe! I have my own version of this I make, very similar to yours. I’m also experimenting with a honey mustard glazed version and a siracha version. ☺️

  7. I am loving Brussel Sprouts at the moment and experimenting with new recipes! I did a similar recipe to this last week but did a balsamic glaze to go over the top, was delicious! x
