Quick And Delicious
Brussel Sprouts Roasted with Fennel, Garlic & Walnuts
July 2, 2017

When friends were coming for dinner I went to the farmers market in the morning looking for some yummy fresh ingredients to share with them.  Amongst the usuals I found new season brussel sprouts and fennel!   So with some help from a recipe I found, some local truffle infused parmesan from Denmark in Western Australia (also from the markets – although any good quality parmesan will work) and a few more ingredients, this was created. I love fennel, especially it’s ability to aid our digestion!

This is a lovely winter dish either as an entree or a side dish.  There’s no doubt food tastes better with friends and family.  Gather them together and enjoy it with others or all to yourself, either way it’s delicious.

Preparation:  5 minutes

Marinate:  30 minutes to an hour (optional)

Baking:  25 minutes

Serves:   6 people entree size or as a side dish

Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Fennel, Garlic & Walnuts

  • approx. 500g brussels sprouts (or about 4 each)
  • 5 medium sized garlic cloves, peeled and cut in half
  • 1 large fennel bulb
  • 1/4 cup macadamia nut oil or grape seed oil (i.e using an oil with a high smoke point)
  • 3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp fresh rosemary
  • Himalayan or celtic sea salt and ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup organic walnuts
  • 1 Tbsp shaved parmesan, roughly chopped
  • fresh dill, finely chopped to serve (optional)


Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius.

  1. Cut away tough ends of the brussel sprouts and loose or blemished outer leaves, slice in half and place in a large roasting dish.
  2. Trim off the root end of the fennel bulb and slice thinly (e.g. half a centimetre) across the width.
  3. Add to the brussel sprouts with the garlic and stir through the oil, vinegar, rosemary and salt and pepper to taste.  Combine thoroughly.
  4. Place brussel sprouts with the cut end facing down and leave to marinate for 30 – 60 minutes.
  5. Put into the oven and roast uncovered for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Remove from oven and serve onto plates.
