Brussels sprouts are rich in vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Folate, Calcium, Iron and Potassium. They are one of my favorite vegetables when prepared properly. Here’s a roasted Brussels sprouts recipe that’s packed with flavor.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts Ingredients:

Brussels Sprouts

  • 1 lb of trimmed Brussels sprouts
  • 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp of garlic powder
  • Sea salt to taste


  • 2 tbsp of fresh or dried diced chives
  • 1 tsp of minced garlic
  • 3 tbsp of grass-fed butter


  • 1/4 cup of pomegranate seeds
  • 3 tbsp of Balsamic vinegar (optional / if tolerated)
  • Pecorino cheese (optional / if tolerated)


Set the oven for 400 degrees F.

Place the Brussels sprouts on a medium baking dish and drizzle the olive oil over them. Add the sea salt and garlic powder and toss them evenly to coat.

Melt the butter in a skillet over low heat, adding in the garlic and chives. Cook the mixture for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Drizzle the sauce over the Brussels sprouts.

Once the oven is ready, place the Brussels sprouts in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned. Optional: If you are adding the pecorino cheese, remove the Brussels sprouts at 20 minutes. Add the cheese and place them back in the oven for 10-15 minutes.

Remove the roasted Brussels sprouts from the oven and drizzle the balsamic vinegar over them. Top them with the pomegranate seeds and enjoy.
