20 minutes in the oven is all you need for crisp-tender roasted Brussels Sprouts flavored with olive oil, toasted crushed red pepper, and roasted garlic.


  • 1 & 1/2 lbs brussel sprouts
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/41/2 tsp crushed red pepper (depending on how spicy you want your Brussels sprouts to be)


  1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees.
  2. Trim the bottom of the Brussels sprouts, put them in a bowl with 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper, and 3 teaspoons of water, and toss.
  3. Spread the Brussels sprouts on a rimmed baking sheet and cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil. Roast for 10 minutes. Remove the foil and roast for another 10-12 minutes, until the Brussels sprouts are browned, crispy on the outside, and fork tender.
  4. While the Brussels sprouts cook, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in a small skillet or saucepan over medium heat until shimmering. Add the garlic and crushed red pepper and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.
  5. Toss the Brussels sprouts with the red pepper and garlic oil and serve.
