Step 1: Roasting the Brussels Sprouts

Roasting the Brussels Sprouts
  • 1 lb Brussels sprouts
  • 1 to 2 tbsp oil (grapeseed or coconut)
  • sea salt, to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Preheat the oven to 400°F (205°C). Note: The sprouts can also be roasted higher at temperatures as high as 475°F, just note that the cooking time will need to be adjusted.

Wash, dry and trim the Brussels sprouts. Cut in half lengthwise. Place into a bowl and toss with the oil and salt and pepper to taste. Arrange cut-side down on a parchment-lined baking tray. Place into the oven and roast for 8 to 12 minutes or until golden, turning once, if necessary.

Once done, serve immediately.

Chef's Notes

Note: Fresh Brussels sprouts are nothing like frozen Brussels sprouts. Do not try to use frozen ones for this recipe because the excess moisture will prevent them from roasting properly.

    The temperature in this recipe is 400 F for 8-12 min but the temp and time for Rouxbe technique and tips chart is 475 F for 15 minutes...I think the latter temp works better.

    I was having trouble getting the desired color on my roasted veggies - even at very high heat (like 475 degrees). I was roasting on parchment in a non-convection oven. I have an oven thermometer and the temperature was pretty spot on. I tried roasting on a silicone mat instead of parchment and the result was much better! The veggies were cooked through and got that nice caramelization I had been looking for! My sprouts roasted for about 12 minutes at 475 degrees. Only used 1 TBSP olive oil and that seemed to be more than sufficient.
