Roasted Brussel Sprouts w/ Parmesan and Pine Nuts

by zesty on October 31, 2012 · 5 comments

Happy Halloween! Tis’ the season to roast vegetables and today is no exception. Lately I have been turning into a huge brussel sprout fan and I am loving it. Many years have passed in my life where I never tried a brussel sprout let alone thought about roasting it in the oven.

Well my friends that has all changed. I am on the brussel sprout bandwagon like society is onto chia seeds. Yep that is right. I heart brussels sprouts. Oh wow, did I just say that?

Ok, enough banter, let’s move on. This recipe doesn’t get much easier than this – 6 ingredients and you have a side dish that will make you happy.


  • Brussel Sprouts, halved
  • Drizzle of Olive oil
  • Parmesan Cheese, grated
  • Pine nuts
  • Salt & Pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 Degrees F.
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and lay out the brussel sprouts, season with salt and pepper and drizzle the olive oil.
  3. Toss and roast
  4. In a small dry pan over medium heat, add the pine nuts to toast them for extra flavor
  5. After the brussels are tender ( about 30 minutes) remove from the oven, add the grated Parmesan cheese and pine nuts.  Toss together.
  6. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip:  When you are buying brussel sprouts, make sure you hunt for the firm ones with a tight outer leave.  I find these are the freshest and best for roasting.

A simple dish that goes with anything.  It works as a side dish, an evening snack or for some – maybe even a main course.

Have a great Halloween wherever you are and eats lots of treats.

Take care

Side dish? Phooey, I’d make it the entire meal. Like you, I love Brussels sprouts!
Another good job, Zesty

Love roasted brussel sprouts but have never added parmesan cheese and pine nuts. Just bought a bag at Costco so will be trying this right away. YUM!
