That’s what you get if you boil and overcook this delicate vegetable. Sprouts do better with fast, hot, dry cooking—it gives them a little caramelization on the edges, adding texture and rounding out their slight natural bitterness.</p> <h3>Brussels Sprouts Cooking Tips</h3> <p>A few simple tips can take your sprouts from bland to brilliant, making them a great addition to your weekly dinner rotation. </p> <p>To get the most from your sprouts:</p> <ul> <li>Roast at 425F for 15-20 minutes or until tender and golden at the edges.</li> <li>Slice thinly and sauté over medium-high heat with a little oil until crispy on the edges, 5-10 minutes.</li> <li>Halve or thinly slice sprouts to help them cook faster. Longer cooking times break down some of the sulfur compounds, giving that characteristic cabbage smell to the kitchen while also risking turning your sprouts to mush.</li> <li>Try eating sprouts raw! Shred and toss into a salad or use in place of cabbage in coleslaw.</li> <li>Thinly slice sprouts lengthwise and toss them in the deep fryer or air fryer for a super-crispy, low-carb alternative to chips.</li> </ul> </section> <hr class="divider-15 divider-thick mx-auto"> <section class="recipe" id="section2"> <h2 itemprop="name">Roasted Parmesan Brussels Sprouts</h2> <div class="prep"> <span> <meta itemprop="prepTime" content="PT15M">Prep Time: 5 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="cookTime" content="PT35M">Cooking Time: 20 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="recipeYield">Serves: 6</span> </div> <h3>Ingredients:</h3> <ul class="ingredients no-bullet"> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1½ pounds brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">2 tablespoons olive oil</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">6 slices bacon</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">½ cup heavy cream</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">3 cloves garlic, minced</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">½ teaspoon salt</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">½ teaspoon pepper</li> </ul> <hr class="divider-50 divider-medium"> <h3>Instructions:</h3> <ol itemprop="recipeInstructions"> <li>Preheat oven to 425°F.
