Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts are leafy vegetables look like miniature cabbages. They have high nutritional value and they are believed to have anticancer properties. I like them to be cooked lightly and they are really tasty when we roast them. Here is the recipe for the simple Brussels Sprouts roast…

Time of Preparation : 5 minutes
Cooking Time : 40 minutes

  • Brussels Sprouts – 1 pound

  • Olive oil – 2 tbsp
  • Cumin seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • Black pepper – 1 tsp (freshly ground) (adjust according to taste)
  • Salt – to taste

Method of Preparation:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Remove the stems of the brussels sprouts and remove any outer yellow leaves.
  3. Cut them to 4 and keep them aside.
  4. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in pan and add the cumin seeds.
  5. When they splutter add the thinly sliced onions and fry for just a minute.
  6. Now add the brussels sprouts, salt and the ground black pepper and mix well.
  7. Transfer them to a oven safe vessel and mix the remaining oil and cook for 30 to 40 minutes.
  8. Turn them every 7 to 10 minutes.
  9. Remove them when they are nicely roasted.
  10. The outer side will be crispy and inside will be soft.
  11. Serve hot with sambar rice or rasam rice.


  • If we want, we can just fry the sprouts in the pan.
  • If we want we can roast the onions and sprouts for different time separately and mix them at the end.

  1. I love sprouts but aside from sprinkling them with honey and a bit of chilli powder, I’ve never tried properly spicing them up. Thanks for the inspiration!
