Crispy Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Total Shares 3.1K

This is so easy it probably shouldn’t even count as a recipe but I wanted to share with you in case you didn’t have already a technique for perfect, crispy, but yet still light, roasted Brussels sprouts.

Brussels Spouts are one of my favorite winter vegetables and though I do things like this to them, my absolute favorite way to eat them is roasted.  Roasted and crispy yet not oily! YUM!!

The thing about them is they really don’t need a ton of stuff.  I’ve tried it all — herbs, spices, garlic, ginger– you name it.  I just keep coming back to this simple recipe. These are definitely a staple in our house! They are so easy and go with so many things—we love them straight out of the oven, when they are the most crispy!


  • I divided this recipe into 2 servings at 2 Points Plus.  You could serve 3 or 4 as a smaller side dish and the Points Plus would be 1 Point per person.

    These turned out just like you said they would. I thought they were great. My wife is not a big fan of brussels sprouts so I added some sauteed bacon and onions for her (something her father does), but I will definitely be making them again!

    This looks amazing, and I am cooking it up right now! But when I plugged it into the Recipe Builder on WW, it said it was 8 points total for 1 lb and Brussels Sprouts + 1 tbsp of oil, so it would be 4 points for half the recipe, not 2. Any idea why we have such different Points Plus values? Thanks!

      Hi Elle,
      Yes, I don’t count the points of vegetables as a side dish. Fruit and Vegetables are supposed to be 0 points plus (for one serving) but the recipe builder adds the points back in. It’s so controversial and everyone has their own way of doing it but that is how I do it. Thanks!

      Thanks Jeanette! I use the bags to coat all kinds of veggies for grilling / roasting. Lets me use a lot less oil!
