How to Create a Barefoot Look Roasted Brussels Sprouts by Contessa

Preparing this meal with fresh brussels sprouts takes a little time, but not a lot.

Simply snip a portion of each sprout’s end off and peel away any wilted leaves.

Cook straight from frozen at any time of year to create this dish. Simply open the bag, mix with the oil, salt, and lemon pepper, then pour onto the baking sheet.

Because frozen vegetables are frozen at their best, they are just as delicious, if not better.

Unless you bought your sprouts at a farmer’s market, they’ve most likely been sitting for a week or more.

Simple, delectable, and unique. Once you’ve tried them, you’ll want to make them again!

6 servings

Calories per serving: 115 kcal

  • a pound and a half of Brussels sprouts
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt, 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon
  • a half teaspoon of lemon-pepper spice
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Remove any yellow outer leaves and cut off the ends of the Brussels sprouts. Combine them with the olive oil, salt, and lemon-pepper spice in a mixing bowl.

  3. Roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until crisp on the surface and soft on the inside, on a sheet pan. To evenly brown the Brussels sprouts, shake the pan from time to time.

  4. If desired, season with additional kosher salt (I prefer mine salty like French fries) and serve immediately.


Roasted Brussels Sprouts Tips & Tricks

There’s nothing wrong with frozen Brussels sprouts, as I have said. If you have access to very fresh sprouts, though, they may have a greater taste.

All you have to do now is choose wisely.

The leaves should be firmly curled and the sprouts should be a brilliant green color.

Brussels sprouts that are very fresh will be firm and have minimal give when pressed.

They have been plucked too long and are not fresh if the outer leaves are starting to yellow. Frozen is going to be better!

Sprouts with black leaves should also be avoided. That’s most likely due to a fungus, which you don’t want!

I hope you give The Barefoot Contessa’s Roasted Brussels Sprouts a try, whether you use fresh or frozen sprouts.
