  • 1 1/2 pounds Brussel sprouts
  • 2 tbsp avocado or olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • black pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 400℉
  • Trim and halve the Brussel sprouts. Be sure to remove any yellowed leaves.
  • Place them in a medium bowl and drizzle the Brussel sprouts with the oil. Add salt and black pepper. Toss to coat everything.
  • Arrange the Brussel sprouts in a single layer on a large baking sheet, cut side down. Don't crowd the sprouts, as they will steam instead of roast if they are too close together. If you don't have a large enough baking sheet, divid them between to smaller ones to ensure they have enough space to roast.
  • Roast for 25-30 minutes or until tender. If your sprouts are on the larger side, consider quartering them or upping your cooking time by about 5-10 minutes. If you are working with smaller sprouts, reduce cooking time to 15-20 minutes
  • The sprouts are done when the bottom and outer part of the parts are evenly browned.
  • Remove from the oven and enjoy warm. Add extra salt, a few pomegranate seeds, a squirt of lemon, some cooked bacon or a sprinkling of cheese. Or just enjoy as is!
  • Let leftovers cool and store in an air-tight container in fridge for 3-4 days.
