Roasted Brussels Sprouts is a flavorful and addictive, caramelized and nutty side dish which is tender on the inside and crispy on the outside, prepared in less than 30 minutes! This dish is among the one that has become my family's favorite very fast. Do try this out and you will find out why! Guaranteed to turn brussels sprouts hater into a fan.
Brussels sprouts are from the cruciferous vegetable family. They are a good source for iron, vitamins A and C and are also low in carb!
My husband and I love trying out all new veggies here in United States and I still remember the first time getting Brussels sprouts home and preparing a dish out of it, neither of us wanted to ever give it a shot again. Plain and simple, I did not know how to cook it. I had simply steamed it, added some salt and chile powder. We just hated the smell and the after-taste. After scrolling through several yummy and drool-worthy brussels sprout recipes over the years, I finally got this vegetable again.
This time it was a super hit. I just roasted them in a blend of olive oil and coconut oil, along with jalapenos until they were caramelized, crisp and tender. Finally, I sprinkled salt, pepper powder and garlic powder. I made it slightly salty like french fries. We totally loved it and now that I know to cook them, I just can't stop eating them and I prepare it quite frequently as a side for dinner.
The recipe below is super easy to male. Wash the sprouts in cold water and remove any outer leaves that have blemishes. Place the cut side down and roast first for about 12 to 15 minutes. This time may vary. You will have to brown the Brussels sprouts to enhance the flavor. As mentioned earlier, I have added coconut oil and olive oil. But you can just add any one or even use butter instead of coconut oil. Feel free to sprinkle some Parmesan cheese at the end if desired. Also serve this dish immediately once its done and you will fall in love with this small cabbage-like-looking green vegetable.
