Brussels sprouts are a cultivar of the Brassica oleracea species, grown for its edible buds (in the same family with cabbages, broccoli, cauliflower, and kale.) The Brussels sprout has long been popular in Brussels, Belgium, from which it gained its name.

The sprout thrives and grows well over the winter period, and came to Great Britain in the end of 18th century, just as the concept of Christmas feasting was beginning.

There are a lot of health benefits of Brussels sprouts. They’re low in calories and high in fiber, minerals, and vitamins. Eating crunchy veggies like Brussels sprouts may help you stave off some underlying health issues, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, and diabetes.

How to make

how to roast Brussel sprouts
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F. Prepare Brussels sprouts by pulling off and discarding the outside leaves of the Brussels sprouts, trimming the tops, cutting in half or quarters if they’re big, and removing the loose, rough outer leaves.
  2. Place in a bowl, pour over extra-virgin olive oil, salt and pepper then toss gently.
  3. Spread out on a roasting tray and make sure they are not overlaying.
  4. Roast for 20 minutes, flip then roast for a further 10 minutes. Serve the roasted Brussels sprouts hot and drizzled with balsamic glaze before serving.

Cook’s tips:

For softer Brussels sprouts: Pour about 1/2 cup of vegetable stock, or just water into the roasting tray, covered with Al foil, and put in a hot oven for 20 minutes, uncover and continue roasting until sprouts are browned. (I did add vegetable broth because I like softer texture.)
