“OOMPY” pick: Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Inspired by: Kelly’s Korner Recipes

I know…not everyone is a fan of these baby cabbages but this simple and easy recipe is sure to win them over.

Items needed

  • 1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts
  • 3 tablespoons good olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Cut off the brown ends of the Brussels sprouts and pull off any yellow outer leaves.
  3. Mix them in a bowl with the olive oil, salt and pepper.
  4. Pour them on a sheet pan and roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside.
  5. Shake the pan from time to time to brown the sprouts evenly.
  6. Sprinkle with more kosher salt and serve immediately.

I decided to keep it simple at Thanksgiving this year since it was my first attempt at roasting brussel sprouts but…come next year…watch out…I’m going for the gusto!!
