Brussels Sprouts! You either love them or hate them, very much like good old Marmite! I’m definitely in “love them” camp but more so since I’ve started roasting these little fellows. Difference in flavour is really big plus flavour enhancement possibilities endless. And who likes watery, bland and flavourless sprouts anyway? Well, not me and you won’t find them here. Instead I present you Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Parmesan & Garlic!
This recipe is super simple and the end results are really delicious. They are perfect as a side dish and go lovely with any type of roast meat or veggie roast too! Believe you me once you’ve tried roasted sprouts it will be difficult to go back to boiled or even steamed version. The breadcrumbs provide a bit of lovely and unexpected crunch which I love!
When it comes to quantities, it is usually myself and hubby devouring the content of this baking dish (kids not keen on sprouts). However, if you are less greedy it will most likely serve 4 (please don’t judge) 😉 .
The parmesan, breadcrumbs and garlic might not be particularly festive but I like them this way and would happily include them as a side dish on my Christmas table. By all means sprinkle some crisped up and finely chopped pancetta or even chopped chestnuts for extra festive flare, I won’t mind and won’t tell. However, I can assure you these are perfect just like that so perhaps you can save the bacon for pigs in the blankets. 😉
If you happen to be on a veggie recipes quest you might like my Celeriac Veggie Loaf or Easy Roasted Butternut Squash Veggie Wellington. Both would make fantastic veggie centrepiece for any occasion including Christmas. Hope you love them too!
