Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Sarah West

Brussels sprouts are an oft-maligned vegetable. But this brassica is pretty tasty especially when roasted. As with many other vegetables, roasting brussels sprouts gives it a lot of flavor.


1 lb brussels sprouts, washed, ends trimmed and cut in half
4 cloves garlic, chopped
4 tablespoons olive oil
~ salt
~ pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat olive oil in a cast-iron skillet until oil begins to shimmer. Lay sprouts, cut-side down, in skillet.
  2. Cook sprouts until they begin to brown. Add garlic, salt, and pepper. Stir briefly to mix in garlic and place skillet into the oven.
  3. Roast sprouts for 25- 30 minutes, shaking skillet occasionally, until brussels sprouts are brown and tender. Remove from oven, add additional salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot or warm.
