Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Garlic and Sesame

November 11, 2012

I went on a trip to the Annapolis Valley last week to visit wineries and producers, and I brought back a lot of amazing wines and foods. These brussels sprouts came from the Noggins Corner Farm Market, and they were delicious!

Serves 4


• 16 brussels sprouts
• 3 tablespoons sunflower oil
• 3 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
• 2 garlic cloves, minced
• 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
• salt + ground black pepper

Pre-heat oven to 450°F.
Bring a large pot of water with a teaspoon of salt to boil
Blanch the sprouts for 2 minutes.
Cool them immediately in very cold water.
Split them in half and lay in a baking pan with the oil, salt and pepper.
Roast in the oven for 15 minutes, then add the garlic and sesame seeds to the pan and give it a stir.
Roast for another 15 minutes, get the sprouts out of the oven and add the apple cider vinegar. Season with more salt if needed and serve.

Roasted brussels sprouts are amazing. 🙂 I usually just roast them with salt, pepper, and olive oil, but adding sesame seeds is a great idea to give them more crunch. And great pictures!

One of my fave veggies! These look fantastic. A nice change to my usual roasted Brussels sprouts.

Wow this really has it all. But it’s the sesame that intrigues me the most. There’s something so savory about sesame. I find it addicting. GREG

I agree with you on that one, toasted sesame seeds are amazing.
