Garlic Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Growing up I always hated Brussel Sprouts.  Overcooked, extra bitter and tough are a few of the torturous memories I can recall from my childhood.  However in the last few years I have discovered a new found affinity for them. Below is a delicious, quick and easy recipe.  I have my sister for dinner tonight who is vegetarian, however if this wasn’t the case I would have added crisp bacon pieces onto the final product.



  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves (chopped)
  • 1/2 tspoon cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tspoon seasalt
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 lemon (juiced)
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (depending on personal taste)
  • 1 Kg Brussel Sprouts (halved)
  • chopped flat leaf parsley



Preheat the oven to 180c. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat, add 2 chopped garlic cloves


Add 1/2 teaspoon each cumin seeds and sea salt and cook 2 minutes.


Stir in 1 tablespoon brown sugar, the juice of 1/2 lemon and a pinch of red pepper flakes.


Toss with the halved Brussels sprouts and pour out onto a baking sheet.



Roast until tender, 18 to 24 minutes.


Toss with chopped parsley.


Enjoy as much as I hope everyone does tonight 🙂

  1. Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months
    of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any solutions to
    protect against hackers?
