How to trim brussel sprouts for roasting
Brussel sprouts actually grown on a stalk (and sometimes can be bought on the stalk during the fall season). However, most brussel sprouts have been removed from the stalk and bagged or are sold in bulk for easy transportation to the store. Because of this, there is often a brown, woody stalk that needs to be trimmed from the base of the brussel sprout before cooking.
To trim brussel sprouts, you want to trim away just the end of the brussel sprout, trying to keep the leaves of the brussel intact. Once the bottom of the brussel has been trimmed, cut the brussel in half lengthwise for roasting.
How long does it take to roast brussel sprouts at 425F?
Once the brussels have been trimmed and cut in half, they need to be coated in oil and roasted at 425F for 25-27 minutes total. At the 20 minute mark, you will want to take the brussel sprouts from the oven and shake them around to ensure they are crispy on both sides.
How do you make brussel sprouts taste good?
One of my favorite ways to make brussel sprouts taste good is to make sure they are properly salted and to make sure there is something good to dip them in!
I highly recommend serving these crispy roasted brussel sprouts with garlic dijon sauce to amp up the flavor and make them incredibly tasty. You could also use lemon herb tahini or spicy tahini sauce for dipping.
