Quick & Easy Brussels Sprouts (Slideshow)

|
  • Grill

    Toss halved sprouts with a little extra-virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper, then grill until just tender.

  • Roast

    Brussels sprouts can be roasted whole, halved, quartered, in individual leaves, or shredded. Try roasting them with coconut oil and cumin seeds for an Indian flavor, or with extra-virgin olive oil and then served with a sprinkle of lemon zest and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. Roasting time will vary depending on how the sprouts are cut, but, in general, you can roast at 400-to 450-degree F.

  • Sauté

    Brussels sprouts can be sautéed for a quick side dish and are delicious when cooked with bacon or pancetta, or when sautéed in butter and tossed with chopped pecans or hazelnuts and a little orange or lemon zest.

  • Raw

    Separate sprouts into individual leaves and toss with a light vinaigrette. The leaves are also great to use as the greens in warm or “wilted” salads. Shred raw sprouts to make a nice slaw or salad.
