Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Cauliflower is one of our all-time favorite healthy vegetable side dishes that the whole family loves to eat.


  • 1/2 head of cauliflower, cut into pieces (about 2 cups)
  • 8-10 fresh Brussels sprouts, ends trimmed, halved, and outer leaves removed
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, optional


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


  • Look for Brussels sprouts that are about two inches long and are bright green with no dark blemishes.
  • Feel free to use another neutral oil for this recipe if you prefer.
