Roasted Brussel sprouts are super quick to prep, healthy, and the most delicious side dish. And best of all, they aren’t mushy!



  • 1 pound small Brussels sprouts
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, optional
  • additional salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Prep the Brussels sprouts by trimming their cut ends and then cutting them in half. 
  3. In a large bowl, add the Brussels sprouts and drizzle the olive oil over the top. Sprinkle on salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
  4. Spread the veggies out on a baking sheet, flipping the Brussels sprouts over as needed so that the cut side is down.
  5. Bake in hot oven for 15-20 minutes until you can pierce the Brussels spouts with a fork.
  6. When they come out of the oven, squeeze the lemon over the top.
  7. Serve right away with more salt and pepper to taste.


  • Don’t use a baking mat or anything on your pan for this recipe, the vegetables against the metal help them to crisp up the best.
