Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Today I am going to share a simple recipe for Oven Roasted Brussel sprouts. This week Hubby got brussel sprouts fresh from the market, on the way back home from work. I must admit that I am not much familiar with this vegetable. My daughter calls them "baby cabbage" because they look like miniature cabbages. I have prepared this once before and decided to cook these in the same way too- Oven roast them. I tossed them with few ingredients and roasted them in oven and they are ready. We had it just like that as you would eat french fries. They tasted best when they were warm.

  • Instead of ground pepper you can add red chilli powder too.
  • Instead of  adding just garlic you can add ginger garlic paste too.
  • Oven timing may vary with each oven. Brussel sprouts have to be slightly browned on the sides and have to be completely cooked through. Otherwise flip them one more time and bake for few extra minutes.
  • I also noticed this requires more salt than for the usual cooking. So check and then adjust the salt as per your taste.
