RECIPE: Garlic Brussels Sprouts

That night, we had them with oven roasted chicken and mashed potatoes.

This recipe is super simple, and super delicious. I have never liked Brussels Sprouts…until this recipe came along. It has changed my entire perception of the little green guys. It is something that both people who like Brussels Sprouts, and those who don’t, will agree is a keeper.


  • About 15 Brussels sprouts (halved lengthwise)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp butter or margarine
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 or 3 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
  • Salt for seasoning


Heat butter and oil in skillet over medium-high heat, until butter has melted and has combined with olive oil.

Reduce your heat to medium, then toss your garlic into the pan. Sauté your garlic lightly to begin to release the flavour (do not brown!).

Place sprouts flat side down and cook untouched for 10-15 minutes, or until bottoms are brown and caramelized. Before you remove the sprouts, you should test one to make sure it has cooked through.

Add salt to taste and serve immediately.
