This easy-to-make Garlic Parmesan Roasted Brussels Sprouts recipe is a delicious side dish made with lemon, parmesan, olive oil, and lots of garlic.
It is about 11:30pm and I am here in front of my computer writing this post for you guys. Why SO late? Because I am watching my baby boy playing in his crib while I work a little bit. Today, I tried everything to make him sleep for about two hours in his crib, but didn’t have any success. He is such a good baby. He smiles at everyone and he almost doesn’t cry, but he is a terrible sleeper. He only sleeps very well for hours in his stroller. The minute we put him in there he sleeps for up to 2 or 3 hours.
Unfortunately, he doesn’t feel the same way about his crib. He totally hates it. Well … this is not totally true because he loves to watch the mobile in his crib. However, he doesn’t like to sleep in there. Actually, he sleeps in his crib for about 40mins and wakes up. Because of this, I am still not sleeping very well. I am very tired. It has been a long time since I’ve had a good night’s sleep and I don’t think I will anytime soon. I know this is part of being a mom and I know it will get better. But of course, everything is so worth it when my little beautiful boy smiles to me. Oh boy … my heart melts. Now, he is starting to laugh and let me tell you that it is very gratifying to see your child laughing. It’s the best feeling ever!
But why am I talking about feeling tired on this post? Because when you feel tired, you just want to cook easy recipes like this Garlic Parmesan Roasted Brussels Sprouts recipe, right? I guess you all agree with me that we don’t want/like to spend hours in the kitchen on our little extra free time. So, the past three months I’ve been cooking very easy meals.
Our weeknight dinners have been eating roasted/baked/grilled chicken or fish with some veggies. It doesn’t get easier than this. Agreed? So, as my husband loves brussels sprouts (and I learned to like it because of him), we always buy them and roast with a good amount of olive oil and lots, lots, lots of parmesan. It takes this Garlic Parmesan Roasted Brussels Sprouts recipe to another level. I also love to roast any green veggie with lemon juice. Hum.. yummy, easy and quick recipe. It’s definitely a winning side dish!

Do I need to wash Brussel sprouts?
Yes, you need to wash Brussel sprouts because many times they come full of dust or they are dirt. So, to clean them you just need to rinse them off in cold water for 30 seconds or until they are completely clean.

It will depend on the size of your Brussels sprouts and the power of you oven. But roughly if you roast Brussels sprouts in the oven to 400°F, you will bake for 20-30 minutes. They’ll be ready to eat when Brussels sprouts are lightly charred, toasted on the bottom, crisp outside and tender inside. Also, it’s very possible that the leaves that are loose will be very brown and crispy.
