Garlic roasted brussels sprouts are an easy side dish that goes well with turkey, chicken, or pork. This is a flavorful recipe that will make your family love brussels sprouts!
As we approach the holiday season, it’s time to start thinking about what side dishes will grace your holiday table. I love to make rich, comforting side dishes for Thanksgiving, like vegan cornbread casserole, nut free sweet potato casserole, and dairy free scalloped potatoes, but I also enjoy making some simple side dishes, too.
These garlic roasted brussels sprouts are just the thing if you’re looking for simple recipes to round out your holiday menu. This is a simple recipe that truly brings out the best in brussels sprouts. Fresh garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper are all you need to make this cruciferous vegetable shine!
Where do you buy fresh brussels sprouts?
You can find them at the farmer’s market in the fall. They are usually sold still attached to the stalk, so you will need to trim them off carefully. Around the holidays, you can usually find brussels sprouts packaged in plastic bags at the grocery store.
How do you clean brussels sprouts?
You can trim off the bottom of each sprout, and remove any damaged leaves. Then place them in a bowl of water to soak for a few minutes. Any dirt should sink to the bottom of the bowl. Make sure to pat them dry with some paper towels before you add the oil.
Can I use a different oil in this recipe?
I like using olive oil, but if you usually roast veggies with a different oil, like grapeseed oil, that should be fine, too.
How do you make garlic roasted brussels sprouts?
- Clean the brussels sprouts and cut into quarters.
- Toss the sprouts with olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper.
- Place on a cookie sheet and roast at 400 degrees for about 40 minutes.
- Season with more salt and pepper if needed.
If you love roasted vegetables, I hope you give these sprouts a try! I never used to like brussels sprouts, but once I tried them roasted, I became a fan. I love the way the outer leaves turn brown and crispy – that’s my favorite part.

Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts.
These roasted brussels sprouts are so flavorful! Simple ingredients like fresh garlic and olive oil make this vegetable extra tasty.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper. (The parchment paper is to help make clean up easier - the sprouts won't stick to the pan).
Trim the ends off the brussels sprouts and remove any damaged leaves. Place in a bowl of water to soak for a few minutes.
Remove the sprouts and pat dry with paper towels. Slice each sprout into quarters.
Place the cut brussels sprouts, olive oil, minced garlic, salt, and pepper in a bowl and toss to coat.
Place the seasoned brussels sprouts on the cookie sheet and spread out in an even layer.
Bake at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Stir every 15 minutes. The sprouts should be tender and the outer leaves should be brown and crispy.
Season with more salt and pepper if needed before serving.
You can store any leftover roasted sprouts in the refrigerator, but these are best eaten right after they come out of the oven.
I love it! Simple yet flavorful, and it can go well with many dishes. Thanks for sharing!
