Roasted Brussels Sprouts With Pumpkin Seeds

by | 0 comments

I pulled this easy brussel sprouts recipe from one of my cooking show segments, “Italian Foods that Support Optimal Immune Health”. 

Brussel sprouts are a cruciferous vegetable that contain the amazing sulforaphane, an immune system enhancing phytonutrient which has been shown to provide protection from lung, prostate, breast, ovarian, colon, and pancreatic cancer.

Sprinkle on a few mustard seeds which provide myrosinase, an enzyme that can increase bioavailability. 

Fresh rosemary and oregano are loaded with antiviral and immune-supportive phytochemicals. 

Pumpkin seeds have manganese and Vitamin K which both support wound healing.



  • Brussels sprouts 
  • ¼ – ½  teaspoon olive oil (optional) 
  • Rosemary, chopped 
  • Oregano, chopped
  • Garlic powder
  • Salt
  • Pumpkin seeds 



  1. Cut brussels sprouts as desired (whole, quarters, halves) and spread out on pan. 
  2. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush brussels sprouts with olive oil.
  3. Sprinkle rosemary, oregano, garlic powder, and salt on brussels sprouts.
  4. Place in the oven preheated to 450 degrees for 25 minutes. 
  5. After cooking, add pumpkin seeds.
