Main Ingredients

  • Brussels Sprouts. Make sure you buy fresh brussels sprouts, rather than the frozen kind. Look for bright green heads that are firm and heavy for their size. The leaves should be tightly packed.
  • Butter. You can use plant based butter for a vegan version of this dish. Also, you can use oil, if you prefer.
  • Spices. Garlic powder, paprika, and salt are all you’ll need.

How to make these Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

1. Trim the brussels sprouts by cutting off the stem and removing the dry outer leaves. Then slice each one lengthwise.

Tips for the Best Roasted Brussels Sprouts

  • Use fresh brussels sprouts. Using fresh brussels sprouts that have bright green heads, are firm and heavy for their size, and have leaves that are tightly packed will ensure that you get the best flavor in this dish.
  • Remove the stem and outer leaves. These parts of the brussels sprouts are the least flavorful, and the leaves are often wilted and discolored. Using the inner leaves will make for a more flavorful dish.
  • Thoroughly coat the brussels sprouts with spices. Using your hands is the best way to make sure the butter and spices coat all the brussels sprouts evenly before roasting. Doing this ensures that the flavors are evenly distributed for the best results.

How to Store and Reheat them

These Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts are best when they’re stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container. They will stay fresh for up to 4 days. When you are ready to reheat them, just place the brussels sprouts on a baking sheet and heat them in the oven for about 5 minutes at 350°F.
