Serving Suggestions

Here’re some of my favorite recipes that I like to serve with my Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Carrots:

Leftover Storing Suggestions

The leftover roasted vegetables can be stored in the refrigerator for 3-4 days in an airtight container. Avoid freezing for the greatest taste and texture.

Ingredients Substitutions and Additions

  • I have used baby carrots in this recipe; however, regular carrots will also work well. But you’ll need to spend some time peeling and chopping them before using them in this recipe.
  • I tossed the vegetables with freshly chopped garlic cloves. However, you can use garlic powder instead.
  • I like the flavor of olive oil; therefore, I used it in this recipe. You can replace it with butter as well. Undoubtedly, Butter Brussels sprouts are so delicious! A small amount of vegan butter could be added to keep your recipe dairy-free. 
  • I kept my recipe simple and seasoned with just salt. However, you can use your favorite seasonings and herbs as well.
  • Brussels sprouts also pair exceptionally well with onions, parsnips, and even potatoes, both white and sweet. However, I never tried to pair Brussels sprouts with green veggies because their flavor profile clashes with the baby cabbage.
  • You can also top them with a sprinkling of Parmesan or Pecorino Romano cheese (add just after they’re done cooking or in the last 5 minutes to melt and toast the cheese).
  • Optionally, drizzle the vegetable with honey to caramelize them slightly as they roast.
  • You can serve the roasted vegetables with a lemon drizzle or a sweet balsamic reduction on top.
  • Top these roasted brussels sprouts and carrots with pine nuts, sliced almonds, sunflower seeds, or sesame seeds for additional crunch.

Recipe Notes

In the end, I’d like to share a few of my favorite tips and tricks that I’ve found useful when making these Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Carrots.

  • Try to get bright green Brussels with tightly packed leaves that feel hard when squeezed. Any with yellowing, loose leaves, or black patches should be avoided. Smaller sprouts have a sweeter flavor than large ones.
  • If you want your vegetables to be tenderer, bake for 20 minutes with the aluminum foil on, then take the foil off and bake for another 10 minutes.
  • To shorten the baking time, halve the Brussels sprouts. This will allow them to cook more quickly. The roasting time can simply be slashed by 15 minutes.
  • Before roasting, some people prefer to blanch their vegetables. If you want to use this method, blanch the veggies for a few minutes. Then use cold water to shock them. Drain them thoroughly to wring off the excess water. Toss them with oil, ginger, and salt and bake at 425°F for 5-10 minutes, or until the edges crisp up.
