Brussels Sprouts with Garlic & Goat Cheese

I wanted to up my veggie game, so I smothered Brussels sprouts with garlic and goat cheese. It's really a side dish, but I love to eat it for lunch! —Brenda Williams, Santa Maria, California
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    16 servings (2/3 cup each)


  • 3 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 8 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (5.3 ounces) fresh goat cheese, crumbled


  • Preheat oven to 425°. Toss first five ingredients; spread in a greased 15x10x1-in. pan. Roast until tender, 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer to a bowl; toss with cheese.
Health Tip: Brussels sprouts are loaded with fat-soluble vitamin K. We need to serve it up with a little fat to absorb the nutrients—thank you, goat cheese and olive oil!

    Even if you don't like brussel sprouts, try this. The garlic makes all the difference. The goat cheese adds to the looks but not necessarily to the flavor. The recipe can easily be cut down. I NEVER make 16 servings.

    I didn't need 16 servings, but this recipe was easy to cut way down to four servings. I love Brussies, and fix them often, but I had never added garlic or cheese.. Now, I will use this recipe quite often. Thanks, Brenda, from this volunteer field editor.
