The Secret to Making Delicious Brussels Sprouts

OK, we've all eaten mushy Brussels sprouts that tasted awful! I used to think that was just the way Brussels sprouts tasted!

I was wrong!

Want to know the secret to cooking Brussels sprouts that people will actually like and want to eat?

Stay away from the stove and use the oven instead!

My Diabetic Friendly Roasted Brussels sprouts taste nothing like boring mushy-boiled Brussels sprouts! They taste delicious right off the baking sheet or added to just about anything!

Recipe: Diabetic Friendly Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Serving Size: Most people would eat about 3/4 cup, so 13 servings

Bake: 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender.

  • 2 lbs Brussels sprouts
  • 2 TBSP Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper

Directions:

Rinse your Brussels sprouts with cold water.

Take a look at each Brussels sprout to make sure there aren't any rotten parts. If you find a Brussels sprout that looks partially black, moldy or mushy – chuck it out!

Peel off any brown or yellow leaves so your Brussels sprouts are all nice and green.

You'll want your cleaned Brussels sprouts to look like this.

Diabetic Friendly Roasted Brussels Sprouts Raw Sprouts

Cut each Brussels sprout in half from top to bottom.

Put your Brussels sprouts in a large mixing bowl with your olive oil, sea salt and a generous amount of fresh ground black pepper. Stir well.

Place your Brussels sprouts on a parchment-lined baking sheet. The Brussels sprouts should be placed cut-side down and only one layer deep (don't pile them on top of each other!).

Bake your Diabetic Friendly Roasted Brussels sprouts at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender (you should be able to put a fork through them). 

OPTIONAL: For more even roasting, stir your Brussels sprouts at 10 minutes.

Enjoy!

How to Eat Your Diabetic Friendly Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Roasted Brussels sprouts are divine right from the oven! I dare you to eat just one!

You can also let your Roasted Brussels sprouts cool and refrigerate them for up to 4 days.  

(NOTE: Roasted Brussels sprouts do not freeze well!)

I like my Diabetic Friendly Roasted Brussels sprouts in a Bean Bowl, as a pasta topper or on top of a green salad.

You can also reheat your Roasted Brussels sprouts for a later meal (200 degrees for about 10 minutes).
