How To Make These Roasted Brussels Sprouts And Carrots

This one time… I wanted to faceplant into my Garlic Butter Roasted Carrots. Honestly. I think I make those carrots thrice a month, at the least. But since I have a very deep love for brussels sprouts, too… and garlic and butter… I decided to marry those 4-ish things together in a pan and enjoy it all in one single bite.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Carrots Holiday Side Dish

This recipe is basic and super simple, and it involves browning some butter, tossing a bunch of garlic in it, and then bathing your veggies with it. About 30 to 35 minutes later, you’ll be able to serve it to yourself and realize just how much you love your vegetables.

They are a tad sweet, a bit savory, of course buttery, garlicky, and crisp-tender. It’s the perfect veg side dish, you’ll see.

Tips For Making These Roasted Vegetables 

Important step to remember is to cut up the carrots smaller so that they will cook evenly and at the same time as the brussels sprouts. My sprouts were muuuuch smaller than usual, which is why the carrots look huge, but trust me, they were cut in about 1-inch chunks.

  1. Would these be ok to make a couple days ahead of time? We are heading to the in-laws for Thanksgiving and I want to bring this but can’t cook it there.

      I’d say yes because we’ve had these as leftovers and they were just fine. You will need to store them in an airtight container and keep them in the fridge until you’re ready to go.

    I’m wondering if you put the browned butter on before you cook the veggies, does it have a tendency to burn? I’m wondering the because the butter will be cooked well first then in the oven for at least a half hour(I usually roast my veggies a bit longer).

  3. I would like to know if it is possible to use frozen brussel sprouts in this recipe. Do you think it would be necessaary to defrost them first?

      I would say to first defrost only because of the water that they will release… it will water-down the flavors.

  4. This looks like the next side dish I’m going to be trying at our house! Garlic brown butter?! Yes please!

  5. I made this and added inn butter nut squash cubes and celery. Went Well with my Thanksgiving Ham. There is also an option to do a balsamic glaze instead.
