Before diving into each type of Brussels sprouts recipes you can make, these are the basics of roasting Brussels sprouts. (Note: This roasting method works for any type of vegetable, too, so you can get creative).

To roast, prep the Brussels sprouts with a little bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread the prepped vegetables on a baking sheet, then roast them in the oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. If you decide to follow one of the recipes here, you'll roast the Brussels sprouts in each recipe at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
