This week's Thursday's Tip is how to roast brussels sprouts from Walking on Sunshine Recipes.

Quick, name a vegetable you don't like?
For some people, that vegetable might be brussels sprouts.  And that was true for me until a few years ago when I discovered how delicious they taste roasted.  Yes, roasted in the oven tossed with olive oil, salt and pepper.   This week's Thursday's Tip is all about how to make an easy and delicious side dish for your next family meal.

My very first memories of tasting brussels sprouts are not pleasant.  I was a little girl and my family was invited over to a lovely couple's home in Queens, NY for dinner.  They were members in the church my father was the pastor of, and had an amazing vegetable and fruit garden behind their house in the city.  We were invited to come pick fruit and have dinner.  We sat down to a table set with the finest china and perfectly pressed tablecloth, but my eyes were focused on the brussels sprouts placed on my plate that I wanted nothing to taking, "just one bite" as my father tried to get me to do.

Fast forward all these years later and I finally figured out how to enjoy this vegetable that I have refused to eat for so many years.  Roasting the brussels sprouts is easy and brings out a nutty flavor making them taste delicious!

An easy way to enjoy a vegetable not too many people like is by roasting the brussels sprouts! This recipe was originally posted on Walking on Sunshine Recipes.


  • 1 pound brussels sprouts
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil.
  2. Rinse and trim the brussels sprouts. You'll want to remove the outer leaves of the larger sprouts.
  3. In a bowl, toss the brussels sprouts with the olive oil, salt and pepper.
  4. Place the sprouts on the baking tray and roast in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes or until the sprouts are tender; tossing after 10 minutes. You want the sprouts to get brown, but be careful they don't burn.
  5. You can drizzle balsamic vinegar or sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top of the sprouts when they're done cooking if you want. I like them just tossed with the salt and pepper. You can also sprinkle a little brown sugar on top of the sprouts before adding them to the oven.
