I love roasted Brussels sprouts and I wanted to find a way to take them to the next level using some of my basic pantry staples. I’ve been on a Caesar salad kick so I thought it would be fun to do a twist with Brussels sprouts. Rather than shredding them and serving them raw, I roasted them in the oven until they were perfectly tender and caramelized. When tossed with freshly made croutons and salty Parmesan, then drizzled with a tangy dressing, they become irresistible!

How to Roast Brussels Sprouts

I learned a great tip from America’s Test Kitchen to ensure perfectly roasted Brussels sprouts. The key is to cover them with foil during the first half of the cooking process. This steams the Brussels sprouts and helps soften them so they’re nice and tender. Then removing the foil allows them to roast and caramelize so it brings out some of the sweetness.

Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Brussels sprouts– You can buy pre-cut Brussles sprouts or cut your own. Look for sprouts that are all similar in size so they roast evenly. Smaller sprouts tend to have a more mild flavor.
  • Olive oil– A little olive oil helps roast the Brussles sprouts and toasts the baguette.
  • Baguette– I used a sourdough baguette but any kind of crusty bread works great. You can even use storebought croutons in a pinch, although they won’t have quite the same texture. If you’re looking for a gluten-free option, try my polenta croutons.
  • Parmesan cheese- Bel Gioso makes a Parmesan cheese that does not use animal rennet, if you want a vegetarian-friendly cheese. I used a vegetable peeler to create Parmesan shavings.
  • Caesar dressing– You can use a homemade dressing like my vegan Caesar dressing or store-bought. Keep in mind that most store-bought dressing contains anchovies and is not vegetarian. I do like Brianna’s Asiago Caesar, which is vegetarian friendly.
