Meatless Monday: Crispy Brussels Sprouts with Smoked Paprika

This year, make a resolution to eat healthier! Meatless Monday is a great way to be healthy!

Brussels sprouts are high in fiber, Vitamin C and contain cholesterol-lowering elements. When cooked with the right techniques, Brussels sprouts can be quite tasty as well! Follow the recipe below from The Bored Vegetarian for irresistibly crispy Brussels sprouts:

  • 2 cups Brussels Sprouts, trimmed and cut in half (save the leaves that fall off – they get crispy and delicious!)
  • 1-2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 Tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 2 Tsp Garlic Powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 2-3 Tbsp Frying Oil
  • Shredded parmesan (for a non-vegan twist!)


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Toss brussels sprouts in olive oil in a baking pan and season with salt.
  3. Roast on the bottom rack of the oven until al dente (about 15-20 mins depending on your oven).
  4. Mix together the paprika, garlic powder and some salt.
  5. In a pan, heat up frying oil until about 375 degrees (I just tested a couple of leaves once I thought it was hot enough). Add roasted Brussels Sprouts and begin to fry. Once they begin to brown, sprinkle with paprika mix and turn to get all sides.
  6. Once nicely browned, remove sprouts from pan and drain on a paper town or brown paper bag. Season to taste with salt (or sprinkle with parmesan). Serve hot.

Good Happens.

Pay it Forward!
