WHY YOU NEED TO MAKE WHOLE ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH GARLIC

  • Roasting brussels whole turns them into little balls of magic. Crispy on the outside and soft inside. Pure deliciousness.
  • They require almost zero prep and no hands-on cooking. Read: they cook themselves. If you can open a bag of Brussels Sprouts then you can make these.
  • One bite of lemony brussels with a piece of roasted garlic will put a smile on your face. #guaranteed
  • They are a no-brainer, healthy recipe that you can serve to literally anyone. These brussels are vegan, whole30, gluten-free, low-carb and all those other ways that someone we know (raise your hand!) eats these days. Whole roasted brussels sprouts with garlic is a recipe we’ll all love.
Brussels can be a little bit of a pain to prepare as you need to go through them one by one, cut off their tough ends, and trim off their outer leaves. EXCEPT if you’re using Pre-Cut Brussels Sprouts. Then all you have to do is open the bag and pour out your brussels. So easy!
This time of year always feels hectic. Is it the same for you? It’s the time of year when every little convenience becomes more important than ever. If I can save 15 minutes of washing and cutting veggies, I’m in.
That time saved will be well used playing with my Australian Shepherd, hanging out with my amazing friends and family, pouring myself a glass of wine, or relaxing. Ok, that might be a bit idyllic. Going to work, doing laundry, washing dishes, and picking up dog toys paints a more realistic picture. #truth
But either way, picking up a bag of prewashed and cut veggies means that I get more time to do the things I need or want to do. It’s like winning the lottery.
I’ve used pre-cut veggies many times, both in recipes here on the blog and when I’m strapped for time at home. I buy them at my local grocery store. They’re widely available so chances are, your life will get a whole lot easier very soon!
When you’re at the store, eye out which other vegetables are available.

SERVE GARLIC ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS FOR THE HOLIDAYS

Whole roasted brussels sprouts with garlic are the PERFECT side dish for your holiday table. Bonus: they can be made ahead of time.
If you’re making them for Thanksgiving or Christmas, cook them ahead of time for 30 minutes then take them out of the oven. Let them cool, cover the pan with plastic wrap, then put them in your fridge. When the turkey comes out of the oven, remove the plastic wrap and put them back into the oven to warm and finish cooking.
By the time the turkey rests for 15 minutes, your brussels will be ready to go!

MAKE ROASTED GARLIC BRUSSELS FOR DINNER

My favorite way to serve these brussels is with chicken and a big salad. It ticks all the boxes for me: easy to make, healthy, and delicious. You could easily sub a piece of salmon or even some tofu.
I simply season some chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and whatever spice blend I find in my spice rack then put them on the tray with the brussels after 15 minutes.
If I’m extra hungry, I’ll throw some mini potatoes (cut in half) on the tray with the brussels when they go into the oven. They’ll cook in the same amount of time. Easy!
Make a super simple salad and you’ve just made yourself a crazy easy and crazy delicious dinner. Win!!
