Nowadays, I can’t get enough brussels sprouts. If you haven’t been to Cooper’s Hawk and tried their crispy brussels sprouts, you...are...missing...out! I know, I know, you’re thinking, “why would I go to a restaurant and order brussels sprouts?” Trust me. It’s a game changer.

Now that I’m officially hooked on these vegetarian roasted brussel sprouts, I decided to try and recreate them. I have to say, I think I came pretty close! Much like collard greens, brussels sprouts are low in fat, high in fiber, and packed with vitamins such as vitamin C and A. But that’s not the only reason why I’m eating them. This recipe is extremely delicious. I’m not going to say it’s 100% healthy unless you omit the Sriracha Aioli, but I mean, it’s okay to live a little.

This oven roasted brussels sprouts recipe has quickly become a repeat in this household and once you try it, you’ll understand why.

Ingredients You’ll Need

Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts

  • Brussel Sprouts - remove any of the outer leaves that may be damaged or discolored and trim off the stem end and halve them.
  • Olive oil - to lightly coast the brussel sprouts while they roast in the oven. Careful not to put too much.
  • Cashews - for garnish and to add some crunch to the dish
  • Lime wedge - for garnish and to add onto the dish for acidity
  • Seasoning for brussel sprouts - sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Sriracha Aioli

  • Mayonnaise - I like to use Primal Kitchen Mayo made with avocado oil
  • Sesame oil - adds in a smooth toasty nutty flavor
  • Sweet chili sauce - is the perfect mix of savory, sweet and spicy and adds great flavor to the aioli.
  • Sriracha - this is a spicy Asian chili sauce made with chili peppers, sugar, salt, garlic and adds tons of flavor for our aioli.
  • Lime - add onto the dish for acidity
  • Seasonings - sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Cilantro Mint Chutney

  • Cilantro - fresh cilantro was used for this recipe, stems included
  • Mint - fresh mint leaves were used in this recipe.
  • Garlic - Minced garlic will give you the best flavor. I don’t recommend using garlic powder for this recipe
  • Lime - add onto the dish for acidity. You can use lemon juice as a substitute.
  • Olive oil - I use olive oil for this recipe, either mild olive oil or extra virgin. Any oil will work for this recipe, I just prefer olive oil.
  • Seasonings - red pepper flakes, sea salt and freshly ground pepper.

How to Make Cooper’s Hawk Brussel Sprouts

  1. Trim the ends off the Brussels sprouts and cut them in half.
  2. Place Brussel Sprouts on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  3. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, toss and coat evenly.
  4. Arrange the Brussels Sprouts on a baking sheet, with all the flat cut sides facing down. Do not overcrowd the pan or the sprouts will not become crispy. Use two pans if necessary.

  6. Remove the brussel sprouts from the oven
  7. Serve with the sriracha aioli and the cilantro mint chutney, and top with cashews and a little lime.

How to Make the Sriracha Aioli for Brussel Sprouts

Storage and Reheating

  • For any leftover brussels sprouts, you can store them in the fridge, in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Storage Tip: I recommend only adding the sauces to the portion you will be eating, and storing the brussel sprouts separate. They will stay fresh for a longer period.
  • Let the brussels sprouts cool to room temperature. Then, place them in a freezer-safe container. The crispy brussel sprouts can be frozen for up to 4 months.
  • To reheat the sprouts, I recommend placing them on a parchment lined baking sheet and placing them in the oven at 350°F for about 10 minutes, or until cooked through. You can reheat the sprouts in the microwave, but note the sprouts might become soggy.

Tips for Roasting Brussels Sprouts:

  • The best way to cut brussels sprouts before roasting them is to trim the ends and then cut them in half.
  • When you arrange them on the pan, put the flat sides down so that they get nice and brown in the oven.
  • Remember to toss them half way through to make sure they all cook evenly.

Recipe FAQ's

How do I make Brussels sprouts taste good?

The secret is to use the least amount of olive oil, to keep them from getting too soggy. Also, seasoning! Experiment with different seasonings aside from just salt and pepper, it makes a world of difference.

Can I use frozen sprouts?

You can but I don't recommend it. They will not get crispy or caramelized and may end up a little soggy.

How do you cut brussel sprouts without falling apart?

Cutting brussel sprouts can be a challenge since they’re so small. You’ll want to trim the very end of the brussel sprout, which is the stem, but not too far into the sprout or you’ll loose most of your leaves.

How many calories in 1 cup of oven roasted brussel sprouts?

About 60 calories if you use 1 tablespoon of olive oil to roast them.

How do I store the Brussels Sprouts?

You can store the leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge for up to three days. Keep in mind that brussels sprouts tend to have a strong scent the longer as leftovers. They taste (and smell) best freshly roasted.

How can I reheat the Brussels Sprouts?

In the oven or in the microwave. They won't be as good as a freshly cooked dish, but they should still be delicious.

Oven: Place the leftovers on a baking sheet with parchment paper and in the oven on 300F for about 10 - 15 minutes, until warmed through.

Microwave: Warm them in the microwave for about 45 seconds, depending on the amount. Note: the microwave is the easiest way to warm them, but will make them a little bit soggy.
