Brussels sprouts are one of those veggies that you either like or you don’t. There doesn’t seem to be any middle ground. However…I used to be in the “not like” camp until I tried them roasted. Total game changer!!

Veggies just taste better roasted – and Brussels sprouts are no exception. The trick is to season them well and roast them long enough to get a little char on them.
You’ll want to get fresh Brussels sprouts from the produce section of the store. Trim off the ends, peel off any yucky outside layers, and cut them in half or in quarters depending on the size of your sprouts. Then toss your sprouts in olive oil and add your seasoning of choice. This time I used Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend. Sprinkle it over the sprouts and toss well.
Line a baking sheet with foil and spray the foil with olive oil cooking spray. Spread the sprouts on the baking sheet in a single layer. Preheat your oven to 410 degrees and roast the sprouts for 25-30 minutes, stirring once or twice during cooking. You’ll want them to be soft and a little charred like in the picture below.
Other seasonings I’ve used are garlic powder, onion powder or just salt and pepper. They are also yummy with a little Parmesan cheese sprinkled on them after roasting.
If you’re like I used to be and say no to Brussels sprouts, try roasting them. You may just change your mind!
