This Brussels Sprouts Recipe Will Change Your Life

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at URI chapter.

I know what you’re thinking, “brussels sprouts are disgusting, there’s no way to make them taste good.” To which I say, don’t knock them until you try out my tips! Brussels sprouts are one of the best foods for your diet: they’re high in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They have the potential to reduce the risk of cancer, decrease inflammation, and improve blood sugar control. But aside from all the science, you can cook them to be absolutely delicious.  Here’s how to make this superfood your new favorite meal. 



  • Brussels Sprouts (whatever amount you feel like eating)

  • EVOO

  • Scallions (chopped)

  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper

  • Lemon Pepper seasoning (optional)

  • Balsamic Vinegar

  • Honey

  1. Throw some EVOO in a pan, turn the heat on low, allow the oil to heat up for no more than six minutes. 

  2. Cut off the end of your brussels sprouts, then cut all of them in half. 

  3. Place your halved brussels sprouts in the pan (flat side down). 

  4. Add salt, pepper, lemon pepper seasoning, and a little bit more oil, then turn up the heat. 

  5. Let the brussels sprouts roast in the oil and DO NOT flip them for about 10 minutes or until they are burnt on the bottom. 

  6. Plate the brussels sprouts, drizzle balsamic vinegar, honey, and scallions on top. Add seasoning to taste. 

  7. Enjoy!
