Recipe ~ Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Garlic Aioli

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Can I just say that Pinterest might just make a cook out of me after all?!  I’ve been finding so many recipes I want to try.  When I came across this recipe from Cakes Cottage for roasted Brussels sprouts ,I knew this was something I needed to make right away. Lucky for me we already had fresh Brussels sprouts on hand!

Ingredients

  • 20-30 Brussels sprouts cut in half the long way
  • 3-4 tablespoons canola oil
  • salt & pepper

For Aioli

  • 6 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic, minced fine
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon flat leaf parsley, chopped fine (I used parsley flakes)

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Start by trimming the ends and peeling off any wilted or damaged leaves.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Rinse thoroughly. I just leave them in the same bowl.

Drizzle 3 tablespoons of canola oil over the sprouts.

Sprinkle on salt and pepper to taste.

Mix Brussels sprouts to ensure that they all get nicely coated with the oil. I used my hands to make sure each and every single one got a nice coat. Spread evenly on a baking sheet.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown; flip sprouts with a spatula a couple of times throughout baking to ensure even crispness. The amount of time can differ depending on how big or small your sprouts are.

Watch carefully so they do not burn.

While the Brussels sprouts are roasting, mix together mayonnaise, garlic, parsley and lemon juice.

    • It took me years before I’d even try them and now I love them! I usually boil them in beef broth, but this might be my new favorite way to eat them! If you try them I’d love to know what you think 😊

  4. I’m not a huge fan of brussel sprouts, but I do like them roasted (honestly…I pretty much like ANY veggie when it’s roasted!!). I never thought about having a dip for them, so I think I need to try this out! 🙂 Thanks for the share!
