How Long to Cook Brussels Sprouts
It takes about 20 minutes to roast Brussels sprouts in the oven, which is definitely the best way to cook them. If you've always hated Brussels sprouts, try roasting them: It's likely that you just haven't tried the right Brussels sprouts recipe! While boiled sprouts are almost universally reviled, roasted sprouts come out tender, slightly crispy, and deliciously caramelized. They're also simple to make: Just toss your Brussels sprouts in a bit of oil, season them with salt and pepper (and minced garlic if you have a few cloves on hand), and roast on a baking sheet at 400 degrees. You'll know the Brussels sprouts are done cooking when the outsides are crispy and you can pierce them with a fork.
