Brussel sprouts are delicious and healthy and may be served at many events. Here is the Platypus Tours recipe for preparing them.

Roasted Brussel Sprouts


  • 1 pound Brussel Sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • Salt and Pepper (to taste)
  • 1-2 Tablespoons of balsamic Vinegar (for added flavor)
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese for garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C)
  • Prepare Brussel Sprouts: Wash the Brussel Sprouts thoroughly and trim the stems. For large ones, cut in half to cook evenly. Remove any discolored or loose leaves.
  • Place the Brussel Sprouts in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle the oil over them, add minced garlic, and season with salt and pepper. Add balsamic vinegar for extra flavor if you like.
  • Toss the mixture to ensure the Brussels Sprouts are evenly coated with the oil and seasonings.
  • Spread the mixture evenly on a single layer on a baking sheet. Make sure the sprouts are not overly crowded so they can cook evenly.
  • Roast in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes. Check them at 15 minutes or so to give them a gentle shake or stir to ensure they are cooking evenly.
  • Roast until tender inside and crispy outside with a nice golden-brown color.
  • Once done, remove them from the oven. You may sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the top for added flavor.
  • Serve immediately; best while hot.
