Although this is a time-consuming recipe, it is well worth it.  The taste of these crispy Brussels Sprout chips will certainly please all your guests.  It is time-consuming only if you are going to use the entire little Brussels sprout.  However, if you just use the outer few layers and leave the center for another recipe, this shouldn’t take you more than 15 minutes. 

If you can ever find Brussels Sprouts right on the stalk, instead of loose in a bag, then buy it.  You can even roast the entire stalk! Put it on a buffet table, and have your guests carve off each Brussels Sprout for a dramatic presentation.

If the Brussels Sprouts are fresh, then it will be easy to remove the outermost leaves as seen in the photo. Save the remaining sprout for another recipe.   

Put on a baking tray, toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Did you know that Brussels Sprouts is part of the cabbage family?  Your first clue should be that it looks like a tiny baby cabbage head.  Cabbage belongs to the cruciferous family of vegetables known as Brassica or cole crops, including broccoli, cauliflower, kale, and Brussels sprouts.

  • Baking Tray


  • 1 lb. (450 grams) Brussels Sprouts, peeled

  • 2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • ½ Tsp salt

  • 1 Tsp freshly ground black pepper


Trim the stems and inner core of the Brussels sprouts to release outermost leaves, about 5 to 6 leaves from each little sprout. You can save the cores to roast another time or peel the entire sprout if you are up to it.
Place the leaves in a baking tray. Add your olive oil, salt, and pepper. Using your hands, massage and toss all the leaves until all are coated.
Place in a preheated 400 F Degree Oven and roast for 10 minutes. Take out, toss, mix, and place back in the oven for another 10 minutes. By now they should all be crispy and brown.
Place on serving plate or platter and cover with grated Parmesan cheese. (Optional).
Enjoy! Bon Appetit! Kali Orexi!


You can make this ahead and quickly re-heat by microwaving for 1 minute. The chips will not lose their crunch and serving them warm will be just fine. I even eat these at room temperature, and they are still delicious
