5-minute roasted Brussels sprouts
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 1½ pounds Brussels sprouts
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin coconut oil, melted (this is the the coconut oil that smells like coconut) or olive oil
  • fine sea salt
  1. Let's get started, shall we! Wash and trim the bottoms of the sprouts and remove any raggy outer leaves.
  2. Slice the sprouts in half from stem to top.
  3. To melt the coconut oil, just put it in a small glass bowl and microwave it for 25-30 seconds.
  4. Toss the cut sprouts with the coconut oil and sea salt.
  5. Place an oven rack a few inches below your broiler, and turn on your broiler.
  6. Set a cast-iron skillet over high heat. When drops of water evaporate on the skillet, then the skillet is ready for roasting.
  7. Set the sprouts cut-side down on the hot skillet. Don't crowd the sprouts, as you want them all to be in contact with the bottom of the pan so they can get all crispy.
  8. Set the skillet under the broiler, and roast the sprouts until the sprouts are evenly charred, about 4-6 minutes.
  9. Remove the pan from the oven and serve them up! Voila!
  10. See how quick and easy that was? I mean who doesn't love a quick and easy healthy sidedish!
