Best Recipe Garlic Parmesan Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Ingredients

  • 16 oz. Brussels sprouts
  • 3 Tbsp olive or avocado oil
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. Trim ends of Brussels sprouts. Wash and dry with paper towel.
  4. Place Brussels sprouts in a medium mixing bowl. Add oil and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Toss gently to coat.

  6. Place all Brussels sprouts on prepared baking sheet. Spread evenly into one layer. Bake on center rack in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes OR until the vegetables are golden brown.

Recipe NotesThis dish is best served right away. The coating will lose crispiness and texture the longer the vegetables sit. You can however prepare them ahead of time and keep in fridge covered until you are ready to roast them. You can use plain breadcrumbs with the addition of Italian seasoning OR skip the breadcrumbs altogether for dietary needs.This article and recipe adapted from this site
