Tinsy and tiny cabbage like green buds, taking its name from Brussel, in Belgium is one of the greens that I hadn’t tried before..ever. So, this time while I was on my grocery trip, I decided to pick some of this cute miniature cabbages, go home and scan the web and try making a recipe with Brussel Sprouts that would be easy on both ingredients and time.
I did read somewhere as these cute Brussel sprouts being, unfortunately, a misunderstood vegetable probably because most people don’t know how to cook them properly.
Well, I personally like the flavor of roasted garlic and of-course baking it with some non-dairy cheese sounded nothing less than tempting and worth giving a try for the first time with some Brussel sprouts 🙂
Vegan. Gluten Free. Paleo and Serves about 4
- 2 pounds of Brussel sprouts, washed and cut in half
- 1/4 cup of olive oil
- Salt and Pepper to season
- I used a little less than 1/4 cup of the vegan cheddar cheese from Follow Your Heart as I had it in my pantry. You may choose any dairy free brand that you prefer.
- 1/2 tbsp of garlic powder
- 1 1/2 tbsp of bread crumbs for a crisp flavor.
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- In a large mixing bowl, add the Brussel sprouts, the seasoning and mix it well along with the olive oil, making sure that they are all well coated.
- Now add the parmesan cheese and the bread crumbs and gently fold them in.
- Pour the seasoned brussel sprout on a parchment/foiled baking tray and pop it into the oven, letting it bake for 35 minutes.
- Turn the Brussel sprouts with a spatula halfway during the baking process.
And that’s it! You are done and this is so ready to be served warm as a side or even if you feel like snacking something healthy during the craving cheat hours.
