Husband's Famous Brussels Sprouts

Author Notes: This is not my recipe, but my husband's; it converts non-believers into believers. He published it on his blog here:

It was inspired by Octavio Becerra's recipe on Food & Wine, here:


Serves 2-4

  • 2.5 pounds brussels sprouts
  • 4 ounces pine nuts
  • 6 ounces butter, melted
  • 2 ounces parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons white truffle oil
  • sea salt
  • black pepper, freshly ground
  1. Preheat oven to 400° F / 200° C
  2. In a large bowl, toss the sprouts with the pine nuts, melted butter, several pinches of sea salt, and several twists of black pepper to coat evenly.
  3. Spread the sprouts evenly on a large cookie sheet (or two) and put in the oven for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove sprouts from oven, toss with a metal spatula, then sprinkle with parmesan cheese and return to oven for 5 minutes.
  5. Remove sprouts from oven and place in a large bowl.
  6. Toss with lemon juice and truffle oil.
  7. Try not to eat too many before they get to the table.
