I’m currently working like a mad woman on some more easy dinner recipes for y’all. Lots of slow cooker, skillet, and sheet pan meals coming your way! But it’s been a bit since I’ve done a side dish so let’s knock one out, shall we?
Your girl (that’s me) loves veggies. I can make a complete meal out of them. But I am absolutely not a fan of just steaming them. That’s a hard pass. It just makes them so wilted and mushy. Absolutely not. I prefer to bring out the natural goodness of vegetables by roasting or sautéing.
These Herb Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Broccoli are little green wonders that get plenty of crispiness on the sides.
You into it? I’m really into it.
For this tasty side dish you’ll need (full list of ingredients and instructions are in the recipe card below):
- Brussels sprouts
- Olive oil
- Balsamic vinegar
- Dried crushed rosemary
- Dried thyme
- Dried basil
- A few seasonings
To make it, we’ll trim and halve our veggies. Then spread them on a 12 x 17 sheet pan. Drizzle with oil and balsamic vinegar. Add herbs and seasoning. Roast for 20 minutes.
I think my six year old could handle this if I’d let her handle a sharp knife. (I won’t.)
I have a feeling you’re really going to like this tasty side dish. The prep is minimal (just a little cutting) and the veggies roast quickly. This is perfect for weeknights when your schedule is especially busy!
How to get perfectly crispy roasted veggies
- Use fresh veggies. Never frozen!
- Choose a large sheet pan so you can spread vegetables in a single layer. I use a 12 x 17 for this recipe. Don’t ever pile veggies on top of each other. We want them to touch the bottom of the sheet pan.
- Cut larger vegetables in half.
- Don’t skimp on the olive oil.
- Roast at a high temp. I like 425 degrees for vegetables!
Can you use different herbs?
Absolutely! Dried parsley or oregano would be excellent in this recipe.
Can you use any other vegetables?
Feel free to swap the brussels sprouts or broccoli for another vegetable that cooks in the same amount of time. Fresh green beans or carrots (cut into sticks) would work well.
Can you roast frozen veggies?
Don’t do it. I know somebody will tell you can. I’ve heard it and I’ve tried it. It just doesn’t work. Roasting frozen veggies results in a mushy texture that just makes me sad. The best part of roasted vegetables are those crispy pieces so start with fresh veggies.

Herb Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Broccoli
- 1 lb fresh brussels sprouts
- 1 lb fresh broccoli
- 1/4 cup olive oil, extra virgin
- 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 1 tsp dried crushed rosemary
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1 tsp dried basil
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 3/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Trim the bottom of each brussels sprout and peel away the first layer of leaves. That’s where you usually see the dirt and any brown sprouts. Once this is done you’ll have beautiful little bright green sprouts. Slice each sprout in half and add them to your baking sheet in a single layer.
- Slice any large broccoli florets in half. Leave smaller ones whole. Add them to baking sheet.
- Drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar over veggies.
- Sprinkle dried rosemary, dried thyme, dried basil, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper over veggies.
- Use a spatula to stir vegetables so that they're all coated with the oil, vinegar, and seasoning. Spread in a single layer.
- Bake for 20 minutes.

I am in for anything that has bacon in it! This sounds wonderful. I love combining the broccoli with the brussels sprouts – great idea
Love the combo of the two veggies…I am still the only one who will eat brussells…crazy family!! this way I can still enjoy them and THEY can have the broccoli!
Ugh I cannot wait for brussles sprouts to be back in season! As soon as I see them at the grocery store, I will make this!
Those veggies are perfectly roasted the way I like them! Looks so good – I needed a side dish for our chicken tomorrow so I think we’ll make this!
Love this classic combo! And that it’s Whole 30 of course!
Two of my favorite veggies! I also love sprinkling lemon juice on my roasted vegetables as well. Looks so yummy!
Nothing better than roasted veggies, except maybe when you add a little bacon! These look so good, and I can’t wait until local brussels sprouts come, should be pretty soon!
I love this side dish, but I’ve never made it with balsamic. I can’t wait to try your version. That addition sounds amazing, especially with the bacon!
Roasting is my favorite way to eat brussels sprouts AND broccoli! Your photos are making me hungry…
I try to make a big batch of roasted veggies like this every week to add to lunches along the way. Love all your flavor add-ins here!
Yep! Bacon + Brussels sprouts = match made in heaven!
I love roasting Brussels sprouts! I have never found a turkey bacon that I like, and would really like to locate your brand. I am in Canada. Will need to go to our local Whole Foods and hope it’s available here.(many things are not)
Thanks for the tip.. Will check it out. Normally I use fresh Brussls sprouts and definitely balsamic vinegar and olive or coconut oil but I’ve not added in broccoli which also is a perfect pairing! I love roasting the outer layers of the sprouts and making ‘chips’… do you do that? I put them at one end of the pan so I can take them off early to avoid burnt chips!
The crispy outsides are my favorite!!
So incredibly yummy! This would be something that I’d devour as my meal. My little side kick would probably be standing at the pan with me nibbling before I could even get it to a plate.
I can taste the yummy flavor from here! Gorgeous photos as well ! YUM!!
YES! One of my favorite flavor combinations – bacon and brussels sprouts! Love this recipe!
Ohhh, that looks delicious! I’m definitely going to try it. Thanks!
These are phenomenal. My husband teased me about the array of seasonings I had on the counter but quickly took back all jokes and asked me to add this side dish to our weekly rotation. So very flavorful and really takes these veggies to the next level.
Delish! I added sweet potatoes & zucchini for color & different texture. I also let it bake a little longer. It was quite a crowd pleaser. Thank you!
