Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Serves 4


  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved lengthwise
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary leaves removed
  • 1 head garlic, separated into cloves (unpeeled)


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Bring a medium saucepan of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add Brussels sprouts and cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Drain and transfer to a bowl lined with a clean kitchen towel; pat dry to remove any excess moisture. Remove towel and season Brussels sprouts with salt and pepper.
  4. Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet, placing cut sides down, along with rosemary and garlic. Roast until browned and tender, about 20 minutes.
