Char-Grilled Brussels Sprouts

Every time I make these someone always asks "Can I please have the recipe?!?"

Ah, the poor maligned Brussels Sprouts. These tender vegetables can actually be made into delicious little flavor bombs of yummy-ness with just a little effort.

Making them in the oven or outdoors on the BBQ grill, you can get amazing results quickly and easily. Even better, you can mix and match flavors by changing up oils and seasonings to have a bounty of flavorful side dishes to match just about any meal.

This recipe is delicious and appropriate for any most low carb programs. However, if you are on Optavia 5&1, brussel sprouts are not approved. Never fear however- you can substitute zucchini for the sprouts very easily in this case. Just skip the microwave step and go right to the oven.

Servings: 4 Serving 



  1. Preheat outdoor grill to 400 degrees (can also be done in the oven on convection if possible)

  2. Trim the stems off the sprouts and cut the big ones in half so they're all about the same size.

  3. Add the sprouts to a large microwave safe bowl and add water. Cover with an upside down plate, or plastic wrap and microwave on high for 5 minutes until tender.

  4. Drain the water off the sprouts and then place in a clean towel big enough to hold all of them.  Wrap tightly and shake to remove any excess water.  You can do this in 2 batches if needed. Be careful, they are hot! 

  5. Add the sprouts to a large bowl and toss with oil and seasonings to coat.

  6. Place in a grill basket or in a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake at  for 25-30 minutes until crisp on the outside.

  7. Serve hot or chilled as a great side dish!
