How To Make Roasted Brussels Sprouts And Carrots
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-ish minutes later, you can serve it to yourself and realize just how much you love your vegetables.
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Arrange carrots and Brussels sprouts in a single layer on a baking sheet.
- Melt butter with garlic in a skillet, cooking until lightly browned.
- Pour the browned butter over the vegetables, season with salt and pepper, and stir to combine.
- Roast for 30 to 35 minutes until veggies are tender.
- Serve garnished with parsley.
Recipes Tips And Variations
- Even Cooking: An important step is to ensure that the carrots are cut into smaller pieces or about the same as the Brussels sprouts. This helps them cook evenly and at the same rate, ensuring every bite is perfectly tender.
- Don’t Overcrowd the Pan: Spread the vegetables in a single layer on the baking sheet. Overcrowding can lead to steaming rather than roasting, which might prevent them from getting that desirable crispy edge.
- Watch the Garlic: When browning the butter with garlic, keep a close eye to prevent the garlic from burning, as it can quickly turn bitter.
- Cheese Topping: Add grated Parmesan in the last few minutes of roasting for a cheesy twist.
- Spice It Up: A dash of chili flakes can add a bit of heat for those who prefer spicier flavors.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the oven or microwave for best texture.
