Smashed Brussels Sprouts taste similar to roasting brussels sprouts. The one difference being that you “smash” them before roasting. This increases the surface area and allows them to possess more crisp edges which make them delicious.

Naturally, adding some parmesan cheese isn’t a bad idea neither.


Before you begin making the Smashed Brussels Sprouts You’ll need to wash them first. You can wash them with a colander or gently pour them into an ice-cold bowl. If the leaves appear damaged can be taken off also. Cut the ends of the stems off as well, but the sprouts I have tend to be smaller I’ve found it not required.

In contrast to roasted brusselss sprouts they require to be soaked for a few minutes in boiling water. The water will soften them to allow them to be crushed. For those who are on the small side, around 10 minutes is enough and I’ll give them a few more when they’re not enough.

When they’re soft enough, take them out of the colander. Then, take care to rub them until they’re dry. They’ll be roasted at this point and water is not your best friend in the process of roasting and getting a crisp texture. After drying, place them on a baking sheet. They’ll have a stunning green hue after their bath in the hot tub!
