Roasted Fingerling Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts with Rosemary and Garlic

roasted brussels sprouts and fingerling potatoes with rosemary-6793-3

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 made this the other night and it was SO good my husband asked me to make it again this week (and he is not a big Brussels Sprouts fan).
We did not even need a sauce since the Brussels Sprouts were slightly caramelized…hmmm, just thinking of it makes me drool…

Roasting veggies is such a great way to serve a quick yet delicious dinner on week nights. I like to roast Hokkaido and carrots together – always turns out really good!

Love the sprouts! Hated them as a kid because I always had them boiled. Now I carmelize them in a pan with garlic and pine nuts! Do delicious that I’ve converted many a hater! Next I’ll try roasting with the potatoes since I usually fix potatoes, onions and garlic with my rosemary.


Jennifer October 21, 2012 at 4:57 pm

Just tried these today. YUMMO!


Lisa October 29, 2012 at 3:12 am

I love Brussels, but just not roasted. Oddly, the charred part turns me off, but only on brussels. Every other veggie, I love roasted. The way I make sprouts is slice them in half and saute/steam them in a bit of olive oil and earth balance on the stove top. Saute/steam means saute to get a bit of color on them and then cover them so they steam and cook through. Delish!

I made this for my daughter tonight. She loved it! She was VERY skeptical about the Brussels Sprouts. She liked all other ingredients though and I said she didn’t have to eat it if she didn’t like it. I just wish I had put more sprout leaves in because they really shrunk down (very nicely) and I think she would have eaten more without complaint. :) She squeezed lemon juice over it. It was a huge hit. Thanks so much for a lovely vegan meal without grains.

Thank you so much Jess! All the best to you. :)

I made these last night after not eating Brussels Sprouts in over 3 years and I just ate two bowls full! I put a little Franks Red Hot on the side for dipping and it was great! Thanks for the awesome recipe!


Angela (Oh She Glows) November 13, 2012 at 12:09 pm

mmm i love the idea of hot sauce on those bad boys!


Megan December 1, 2012 at 11:24 pm

Using your recipe, I just tried brussel sprouts for the FIRST TIME. SO amazing!! Thank you for sharing. It was absolutely delicious and I plan to make a lot more brussel sprouts now!

Suzanne December 16, 2012 at 10:11 pm

Is this something that you could prepare the night before and then roast the next day…or would the rosemary be too strong?


Angela (Oh She Glows) December 17, 2012 at 9:42 am

I can’t see why it wouldn’t work! Let me know if you try it out.


Priscilla February 17, 2013 at 4:18 pm

Can you tell me how many cups of brussel sprouts and potatoes are used? I don’t have a scale, so I’m not sure of the measurements. Thanks!!


Christina Gray April 27, 2013 at 1:12 pm

I bought a bag of brussel sprouts to try, and they were SO GROSS. They’ve been sitting in my freezer for months since that first taste test. This recipe looked delicious, so I gave them another try, and I’m glad I did. This is SO GOOD. If it weren’t for your blog, I would have probably starved by now.


Angela (Oh She Glows) April 28, 2013 at 11:37 am

yay! So glad to hear that :)

Absolutely love the use of rosemary and garlic together here! I recently bought a bunch of fresh rosemary for the first time, determined to cook something with it but having no idea what.. And then of course I came across your blog, and now my ideas are endless!
You’re incredibly talented.

On a side note, I also happened upon some strange looking green stalks (turned out to be stalks of lemon grass) and of course in my new “you’re going to learn to cook no matter what” mindset, i grabbed one and put it in my trolley as if that was what I had intended to do all along. Now I’ve got this thing here, and no clue what to do with it.. Any chance you’ve experimented much with lemon grass?



Mandy B. September 25, 2013 at 1:07 am

This looks so good! Just curious, should I put some whole sprigs of rosemary on the pan while roasting like in the picture? Or was that just mean to look pretty? Thanks!


Angela (Oh She Glows) September 25, 2013 at 9:25 am

I think I did it just for the photo, so no it’s not necessary! :)


tigerarchivist October 19, 2013 at 6:25 pm

I just pulled this out of the oven. We love how the house smells of fresh rosemary and garlic! I love brussels sprouts any which way, but roasting them brings out the sweetness. I didn’t use the sugar suggested in the recipe, and don’t think it needs it. Wonderful recipe!


Natalie {Use Your Words, Little Girl} November 21, 2013 at 12:44 pm

Do you have any tips for keeping a dish like this warm if you have to cook in advance? I want to bring this to my work’s Thanksgiving potluck meal, but don’t know how to keep it warm (I can run home to grab it before we eat) without it losing the roasted goodness.


Lisa December 7, 2013 at 8:06 am

beautiful recipe – I love rustic veggie dishes like this! Pinned to my “exceptional vegetable” board.


Christina April 13, 2014 at 12:08 pm

These were simple and great! Thanks so much for introducing us to brussels sprouts!


Holly November 26, 2014 at 9:10 am

I made these tonight. Yum! And a lot easier than I though it would be to cook fresh brussels sprouts. I never want to eat mushy frozen ones again! Thanks for the recipe!


Susan McCabe January 26, 2015 at 10:16 pm

I bought your cookbook in September and bought a second copy for a friend in December. I have not found a recipe that my husband and I do not like! This recipe was shared with friends at Christmas. Everyone loved it!


Tanya June 11, 2016 at 4:48 pm

I hadn’t really ever had Brussels Sprouts until I was an adult (at least not that I can remember) because my mother didn’t like them. My boyfriend (who later became my husband) introduced them and I have been a huge fan since. Unfortunately he has recently decided he doesn’t like them so much anymore. I am taking a chance making these tonight. I’m using shaved BS and threw some onions into the roasted veg. I think I will too with a little balsamic glaze. Wish me luck!!


Angela Liddon June 13, 2016 at 1:06 pm

Belated good luck, Tanya! How did you guys end up liking the dish?
