I absolutely adore brussels sprouts, but this wasn’t always the case. Growing up, I despised them as most children do. In my early twenties, I gave them another shot and they slowly grew on me over the course of many holiday dinners. I’d place a few on the edge of my plate “just to try” and eventually they grew on me. They’re now one of the first vegetables I make a beeline for at holiday dinners. This past weekend was no different!

My absolute favourite way to enjoy them is roasted. I have no idea why there isn’t a recipe on the blog, but I decided this had to be remedied immediately. This recipe today features my favourite potatoes of all time (fingerlings), a generous amount of fresh rosemary and garlic, and of course, hearty brussels sprouts. Tossed with a touch of extra virgin olive oil and roasted for about 38 minutes, it was just about too good to share. It’s the ultimate comfort food on a chilly fall day.

A little roasting goes a long way, especially when it comes to brussels sprouts. They get slightly charred and caramelized in the oven and have a dense “meaty” texture that you wouldn’t expect from a green vegetable. If you’ve ever crossed this vegetable off your “want to eat more of” list I encourage you to give this recipe a shot; you might be surprised at how quickly they disappear. I knew this dish was a keeper when Eric – who is not a big fan of brussels – gobbled them up quickly.

I cant see why not!

I’ve roasted frozen sprouts before. Make sure to squeeze the water out really well after defrosting. From my personal experience, they don’t roast quite as well as fresh (can be a little mushy on the inside and the outer layer doesn’t get as crisp), but they’re still really tasty!

I love brussel sprouts roasted and caramalized with BALSAMIC vinegar. Yum. I can’t wait until they are in season here.
I hated brussel sprouts as a kid. Proabaly because: 1) they were inevitably frozen and then cooked (mushy and disgusting). 2) I think they were boiled as well. Really untasty.

Great idea, adding brussels sprouts to potatoes!! I love all the flavor combination in this dish!

I would always eat Brussels sprouts if they were served to me, but I never really LOVED them until I started roasting them. It takes them to a whole new level!

I’m also a new fan of brussel sprouts. The most favorite recipe that I’ve tried for brussel sprouts is with pomegranate and pecans.

I think I wil try this, minus the brussel sprouts. I told my doctor that even if they were the fountain of youth I would have trouble eating them and since I eat just about every other vegetable on the planet including a few that I don’t even know their names but just buy them from the Asian vendor at the local farmer’s market, I think I am okay taking a pass on this one vegetable. That leaves more for the rest of you to enjoy!

I used to loathe them too! They’ve grown on me a whole lot in the past years. I still don’t care for them whole, I actually like to chop them up into shreds and sautee them with garlic. They cook super fast and are so tasty! My dad said he’s rosting them whole on the stock tonight, intersted to see what that is like!

I’m a HUGE brussel sprout fan and you just reminded me that not only is it pumpkin season – it’s brussel sprout time!!!! One of my favorite ways to prepare them is pan frying them on the stove top until they begin to caremlize. Then deglaze the pan with a few tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. The last step is to stir in a couple tablespoons of agave (or any sweetener). This makes a delicious “sweet & sour” brussel sprout side dish.

that sounds incredible…mouth is watering! over brussels who knew?

Shira October 9, 2012

This is by far, the very best way to eat cooked brussels sprouts! And of course rosemary is not at all optional in any way :) I am so into raw brussels sprout salads right now….my new favorite way to eat them! Gorgeous photos Angela!

I’ve been reading your blog for a few months now, but I’ve never commented. Anyway, brussels sprouts are probably my FAVORITE vegetable. Never touched them till age 27 (I’m 28!), but to me and my husband, they are addicting. My favorite way to cook them is by simply roasting them in olive oil, salt, and pepper. Sometimes I’ll add lemon juice or red pepper flakes, but, honestly, I think the natural flavors are just too good on their own. This combination with the fingerling potatoes, garlic, and rosemary sounds delicious, though. Must attempt it soon!

By the way, your spicy bbq chickpea burgers are amazing. It’s the first veggie burger I’ve made (and eaten, truthfully), and as an omnivore, I actually prefer these over meat. Even my husband said as much. :-) Hope you don’t mind that I linked to your recipe on my own very amateur-ish blog. Can’t wait to try some other recipes!

This looks like such a great fall dish! I love brussel sprouts (probably an unnatural amount for a college student)! I especially love them roasted! So good.

I LOVE roasted vegetables, especially brussels sprouts. I’ll definitely be making this recipe soon. Funny story–One Christmas I made a brussels sprouts dish with almonds and balsamic for a potluck with friends. As soon as I removed the lid off the sprouts at the table, one of my friends asked (genuinely), “Who farted?” Some things just taste way better than they smell!

Your photo of the bench and yellow tree on a perfect fall day is so lovely. Fall is ridiculously photogenic, isn’t it?

I have the same story with the Brussel Sprouts. But I love them now! And I am trying this recipe tonight with farm fresh finglerling potatoes! Ill post the pictures on my blog tomorrow…thanks for the great recipes and your inspiring story.

It seems I am of the vast majority of previous brussel sprout hater-turned lover thanks to finding this wonderful cooking method. However that is not the reason for my comment. I have to ask, where is the tree picture taken? It looks EXACTLY like my run route along Lake Ontario in St.Catharines/Port Dalhousie

Angela (Oh She Glows) October 10, 2012

It’s along Lakeshore in Oakville :) Sounds like you have a nice running route too!

My favorite way is exactly like yours but I also add couple tablespoons of balsamic vinegar. YUM!!

Lia October 9, 2012

I’m definitely a Brussels Sprouts lover and wooer! My roomy just bought a bunch and I secretly hope she’ll share them with me until I buy myself some :D

I like them simply roasted like this, but with roasted chestnuts on the side rather than potatoes. This post did get me on a potato craving, which is VERY rare (not a potato person). Picked some up, gonna make a vegan potato gratin. Thanks for the random inspiration!

YUMMMMM!!! We eat a LOT of roasted vegetables when the weather starts turning to fall (which we still have not gotten in Portland…sigh…). Like you, I love to do a potato and brussels sprout blend, but sometimes we’ll put in some sausage bits or soyrizo for some spiciness and protein. I’ve been eating sweet potatoes, onions, broccoli, carrots, and mushrooms all roasted together for several days in a row now, often for breakfast! Although thyme is my favorite herb to add, rosemary is a close second. Thanks so much for posting this! Definitely am a fan of roasted veggies! (Although I think yours are prettier than mine. ;-)

This recipe sounds amazing!!!! I’ve never thought about potato/brussel sprout combo but it’s a really good idea. The garlic would totally bring out both pieces and help them combine into a great dish. Going to make this and also tagging it because I want this on my table to share with the family at Thanksgiving! Thank you :)

try brussel sprouts, capers, garlic, and olive oil. some salt, pepper, and cayenne to taste. I pan roast them – until the brussel sprouts are caramelized and the capers are crispy… our favorite recipe – no leftovers ever

Shelley October 11, 2012

I’ve only tried brussel sprouts once before – I come from a family that hate brussel sprouts – but I adore fingerling potatoes. I tried your recipe and wow! My husband and I both loved it!! Thanks for posting! :)

Monique Reavis October 11, 2012

I’m trying this right now! I swapped the rosemary for cilantro and the fingerling for red potatoes, only because I had them available in the kitchen. The kitchen smells wonderful!

So funny – I just made roasted red potatoes and brussel sprouts! I do not think I ever even had a brussel sprout until last year – for some reason I decided to try them and WOW – definitely one of my favorites now too! I will have to try your recipe – it looks great. I just tossed in a little olive oil and sprinkled salt, pepper and a little chili powder on. Now if only my kids would eat them (they eat the token one bite!)

I am a newly converted vegan and so I’ve started experimenting with vegetables. This is seriously my first time eating Brussels sprouts and I LOVE THEM cooked this way!

As a kid I HATED Brussels sprouts but now that my tastes have changed and I now eat all sorts of things I have been wanting to try them. This recipe was great. I finished the sprouts off with a splash of balsamic which was delicious.

Sara October 15, 2012

I made this recipe this past Friday night, but I added the apple sage Field Roast sausage you mentioned in your ’10 Food I’m Loving Lately’ post and it was delicious! It was definitely a comfort food kind of night and that hit the spot. My night was filled with home done mani/pedi, this recipe as dinner, and dessert was blood orange sorbet. SO YUMMY! I’ve been reading your blog for almost a year now and have been a lacto-ovo vegetarian for 5 years. I’m finally starting to feel I’m ready for my last transition to being a vegan! It feels like the right time and I’m feeling less dependent on dairy. I had a baaaaaaad addiction to cheese and milk. Wish me luck and I really hope this is it for me!

I’ve been following your blog for a while – it is fun to read and every once in a while I find the time to try some of the recipes.
I don’t really remember ever eating brussel sprouts but tonight I tried this recipe. Delicious! I actually liked the brussel sprouts better than the potatoes (and I love me some potatoes). My husband said they tasted like really fancy garlic fries, but he would eat these over garlic fries :)
Thanks for the recipe!
