If you haven't tried garlic roasted Brussels sprouts then stop what you're doing and try it immediately! This is the quickest, easiest and most delicious way to cook Brussels sprouts. The perfect side for a roast dinner or Christmas feast. Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Brussels sprouts have something of a bad reputation. This is largely caused by them being over-boiled and forced upon us as children.
When boiled to within an inch of their lives sprouts (aka the dreaded sprouts as we used to call them as kids) smell weird, taste bad and are frankly, unappetising.
However, boiling them doesn't do them justice. Finely shredded into a salad, sautéed with coconut into a curry or roasted, Brussel sprouts are entirely different. Delicious in fact.
Try this roasted Brussels sprouts recipe and let me convince you that sprouts deserve a place right at the centre of your table.
How to prepare Brussels sprouts
Brussels sprouts do take a little preparation but it's worth the effort. Here's what to do:
- place your Brussels sprouts in a colander and give them a good wash
- remove the outer leaves
- cut off them stem end
- if they're large cut in half
Contrary to popular belief you do not need to cut a cross into the stem end. This actually causes them to become soggy.
Once your Brussels have been prepared either proceed with the recipe below or follow the recipe of your choice.
