Oven-Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Chestnuts


Roasting Brussels sprouts gives them a rich flavor and crispy exterior—a vast improvement over the texture and taste of boiled Brussels sprouts.

  • 8Servings


  • 3 lb. Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1 8-oz. jar cooked, peeled whole chestnuts, chopped (11/4 cups)
  • 4 medium shallots, peeled and thinly sliced (1 cup)
  • 4 slices soy bacon
  • 2 Tbs. lemon juice
  • 1 Tbs. grated lemon zest
  • 3 Tbs. finely grated Parmesan cheese


1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Toss Brussels sprouts with 1/4 cup olive oil in large bowl. Arrange Brussels sprouts cut-side down on baking sheet. Roast 20 to 25 minutes, or until just golden. Sprinkle in chestnuts and shallots, moving them around on baking sheet to distribute oil. Roast 20 minutes longer, stirring occasionally.
2. Meanwhile, heat remaining 1 tsp. olive oil in skillet over medium heat. Add bacon, and cook 2 minutes, turning once, or until crisp on both sides. Drain on paper-towel-lined plate. Crumble into small pieces when cool enough to handle.
3. Toss Brussels sprouts mixture with lemon juice, lemon zest, and Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper, and transfer to serving plate. Top with crumbled bacon.
