Servings 6 people


  • 2 pounds of Brussels Sprouts
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil extra virgin
  • 1/2 tsp Smoked Spanish paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin
  • Kosher Salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp Apple cider vinegar or Balsamic
  • 2 cloves of Garlic minced
  • 1 whole Shallot minced


  • Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Trim the ends of Brussels Sprouts and remove exterior leaves. Wash and drain well. Spread sprouts on a kitchen towel to remove excessive moisture.
  • Arrange brussels sprouts on to a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Coat brussels sprouts with oil, add smoked paprika, cumin, salt, and pepper. Mix well and spread in an even layer.
  • Roast for about 30 minutes or until sprouts are caramelized and crisp on the outside.
  • Shake or stir the pan occasionally to ensure even roasting.
  • Once out of the oven, add garlic, shallot, drizzle apple cider vinegar, give it a light toss, and serve.


To ensure the crispy and caramelized success, make sure to use a large enough pan so that these sprouts can enjoy some "personal space".
