Brussel sprouts are a powerhouse of nutrition in a small little package – offering a great addition to your gluten-free plate.


Yet, it seems that people either love or hate them.


What side of the fence are you on?


Here’s a challenge  . . .  try making them a different way.


Give them a NEW try and see if you can change your mind (like many of my clients who are now eating Brussel sprouts!)


Here are three ways to cook Brussel sprouts to add to your dinner table.

Let’s Roast Some Brussel Sprouts


Roasted Brussel sprouts can really hit the spot!


I love ANY vegetable roasted and could seriously eat an entire pan of roasted veggies on my own! They are simple to make, don’t take long and can be added to any meal.


Grab about a pound of Brussel sprouts. You can pick these up at your local Farmers’ Market or right in the produce section of the grocery store.

Roasting Brussel Sprouts, or any vegetable, is so easy that you will wonder why you haven’t been serving your veggies like this all along!


Basically, all you do is:

  1. Choose your veggies – Brussel sprouts today but you can use any veggies you love – cauliflower, broccoli, sweet potatoes, onions, peppers, squash . . .
  2. Wash or rinse – clean your veggies 
  3. Chop to prepare  – Here you want to chop your veggies about the same size so that they cook evenly.
  4. Drizzle with your favorite oil and sprinkle some spices over your veggies – mix it up each time – spicy or savory.
  5. Roast your veggies – typically a 375-400° oven works well, roasting for about 20-40 minutes depending on the veggie. Hardier veggies like beets or potatoes need more time, while Brussel sprouts, carrots, and cauliflower do well in about 20 minutes. Of course, everyone’s oven is different so a good rule is to check every 10 minutes.
  6. Devour the veggies you just made!

Once you roast the Brussel sprouts, you can kick it up a notch and create new versions, like our


Holiday Style Roasted Brussel Sprouts


Prepare the Roasted Brussel Sprouts as stated in our recipe.


In the last 5 minutes of the baking throw in a handful of dried cranberries and walnuts.

The walnuts add a wonderful crunch and the cranberries add a tangy sweetness all to boost the overall flavor of the dish – so good!


Your guests will think you went WAY out of your way for them! 


Or you can try our


Mustard-Glazed Brussel Sprouts


This is a simple recipe my dad taught me. It really adds a great layer of flavor to the veggies.


After roasting the Brussel sprouts, simply melt Earth Balance Butter (our favorite dairy-free butter) with Annie’s Honey Mustard. Stir together in a frying pan until creamy- then add the roasted (or steamed) Brussel sprouts to the pan. 


Stir to coat and let cook for about 5 minutes stirring around so that they do not burn. Sprinkle with sea salt and serve – so tasty!
