I used to hate Brussels sprouts as a kid — they were always the last thing left on my plate that I would try to get out of eating, always soggy, over cooked and tasting like bland cabbage.
For anyone whose memories of Brussels sprouts are akin to mine, this recipe is guaranteed to change your mind! Roasting keto-friendly Brussels sprouts until their edges are crispy and full of flavour is my favorite way to eat them now — and the first thing to disappear from my dinner plate!
I’ve kept this low-carb recipe fairly simple, but you could add some spices here to change the flavour profile if you want — my favorite way to do this is with some smoked paprika and a little chilli.
I personally think you don’t really need anything extra — the key thing here is the technique to get the crispiness right. To do this, you want to make sure you have a hot oven, a heavy baking tray which will retain the heat, enough olive oil to get them crispy, and I also get better results by placing them face down so that the flat edge is properly browned.
