Brussels sprouts are brushed with spicy garlic oil and roasted directly on the stalk for a fun presentation. It is also an easy Thanksgiving side dish.

I picked up Brussel Spouts Stalks last weekend at Trader Joe’s. It’s become an annual tradition and I love finding new ways to cook them.

Cooking the Brussels Sprouts Stalk is easy. The sauce is a simple mix of olive oil, fresh garlic, garlic powder and cayenne pepper. After brushing the sauce over the sprouts, I sprinkled some salt and pepper flakes. And then it is ready to go in the oven. Cook for about 40 minutes until the sprouts are tender and then it’s ready to eat.

To eat them, I simply use a knife to cut them off and serve.

  1. I’m thinking of doing this and picked up a stalk at TJ’s. Tagged on it was a recipe for roasting that directed you to first microwave the stalk for 4-5 minutes and then roast in the oven at 350 for 45 minutes or so. Is the microwave step unnecessary? Thanks.

    • I do not put them in the microwave. I imagine if you do that, it will soften up the sprouts, cutting down on roasting time. But I just cook them directly in the oven

  2. What do you do with the stalk after eating the sprouts?

  3. Beautiful!!!
