Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

I LOVE garlic!  I didn’t know how much flavor and kick it adds to foods until I started experimenting with it in my recipes.  The key is to use fresh garlic cloves, not the minced kind in the jar.  Fresh garlic is inexpensive and has many health benefits. Here’s a recipe I found to kick up your roasted brussels sprouts a notch.  Enjoy!


  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • salt to taste

Preheat oven to 400 F.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil, add the Brussels sprouts and cook for two minutes. Drain well and place the Brussels sprouts in a large bowl. Add the minced garlic, cayenne pepper, and olive oil and gently toss to coat. Transfer the Brussels sprouts to a baking pan and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 15-20 minutes, shaking pan occasionally until sprouts are brown and crisp on the outside and tender on the inside.  Adjust the taste with more salt if necessary, drizzle with lemon juice, toss to combine and serve.  Bon appetite!
