Garlic Lemon and Parmesan Roasted Brussel Sprouts


Don’t we all remember those times when we were young that our parents or grandparents were trying to get us to eat our brussels sprouts? It’s funny, kids and brussels sprouts, I think it’s just one of those things as we grow our taste in food changes. We crave more depth of flavor vs. that plate of pasta with butter and salt. You will love the delicious flavors in these brussels sprouts! Roasting them in the oven enhances them times ten and the added flavors of fresh lemon, garlic and parmesan, well you all know what that simple combination can do. Wonders, right?

This is a healthy side that is easy to make and sure to please. Next time I want to try these with dried cranberries and pecan pieces (while omitting the garlic, extra lemon spritz and parmesan) for another exciting flavor combo. If you do go that route, add 1 Tbsp brown sugar when tossing with oil and lemon, then add 3/4 cup dried cranberries and 1/3 cup chopped pecan pieces during last 5 minutes of roasting (and leave out those listed ingredients mentioned just prior).

  • Nancy: It is amazing that roasted Brussels sprouts loose their cabbagie taste and turn to a nutty taste after 25 minutes in the oven. More people would eat them if they knew that they were nutty. Great recipe! August 11, 2017 at 6:35pm Reply
