Welcome to Roasted Veggie Heaven

Brussels sprouts don’t get nearly the love they deserve. I think it’s because when our parents were growing up, Brussels sprouts were served boiled (yikes), soggy, and bitter. That’s a pretty bad reputation to overcome! But when done right, roasted with a crisp, slightly charred outer layer, tender in the middle, Brussels sprouts are veggie heaven. One of our absolute favorite side dishes are these Crispy Asian Brussels Sprouts, a copy cat recipe from a restaurant we love.

How to Roast Brussels Sprouts

First preheat the oven to 400°F. Then prepare the Brussels sprouts by cutting off the base of each sprout, slicing them in half from top to bottom and remove the excess or loose exterior leaves.

Briefly soak the cut sprouts for a minute in water to clean them. Drain and spread themout on a paper towel to dry while the oven is preheating. Then cover a large rimmed baking sheet with foil (makes cleaning it easier later on) and spread the Brussels sprouts out on the pan.

Next, generously drizzle the Brussels sprouts with the oil and sprinkle with kosher salt. Stir them with your hands to ensure they’re all well-oiled and salted. Arrange in an even layer with the sliced sides facing up.

Place in the oven, on the top rack, and roast for about 40 minutes. Shake the pan every 10 minutes to ensure all sides get crispy and charred. Serve and enjoy!
