Roasted Garlic Brussels Sprouts tossed with lemon juice, Parmesan cheese, and garlic. Quick and easy side dish that can be made in less than 30 minutes.
This was the first time I’ve ever had Brussels Sprouts. My boyfriend who is on a health kick brought a bag of these home this past evening. Never having ate or cooked a Brussels sprout before I was a little lost. I decided to roast them like I do for my Roasted Garlic Asparagus with Breadcrumbs. Throw some garlic, oil, Parmesan cheese and lemon on them and they can’t taste bad right?
Most people either love of hate Brussels sprouts. I can now say I love them.
Caramelized on the outside and tender on the inside. The crispy pieces are the best! Brussels sprouts have a wonderfully nutty flavor. Perfect for roasting. I like to cook my Brussels sprouts until tender but not mushy.
Brussels Sprouts are loaded with antioxidants and are great for lowering cholesterol and inflammation. At about 40 calories a cup Brussels sprouts pack enough Vitamin C and Vitamin K for the whole day! Loaded with protein and fiber to keep you full throughout the day.
This is a quick side dish perfect for any weeknight meal. Simply preheat your oven to 375 degrees toss the Brussels sprouts with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Roast for 20-25 minutes and sprinkle with lemon juice, Parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes for a little kick. Done!
I prepare the Brussels sprouts by cutting the end off first and then cutting them in half lengthwise.
For a twist serve with pine nuts or sliced almonds. You can even shred the Brussels sprouts to make a nice chopped salad. The possibilities are endless!
This recipe makes a little over 2 cups, just enough to serve two people. I like to make extra and add them to brown rice for a quick and healthy lunch.
These Brussels Sprouts will make an excellent side dish for your Thanksgiving meal.
If you haven’t had Brussels sprouts before you must give them a try with these few simple ingredients.
This is a dish that even Brussels Sprout haters will love. Enjoy!
