Lemon Garlic Brussels Sprouts with Potatoes and Cheese Croquettes

26 Okt

We had a nice Flemish meal tonight!

Fall means fall vegetables, and the Brussels sprouts were on sale in the supermarket, so Brussels sprouts it was!
When I grew up, we always had sauteed Brussels sprouts with bacon pieces. But since I’m a vegetarian now, I decided to add a little flavour another way. This recipe was amazing! Fresh thanks to the lemon and savoury thanks to the condiments and the gruyere… These babies will be on the menu a couple of more times this fall/winter.

Lemon Garlic Brussels Sprouts with Potatoes and Cheese Croquettes


Ingredients (for 2 people)

  • 450g Brussel Sprouts
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped finely
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 Tbsp gruyere, grated
  • salt & pepper
  • 500g potatoes
  • salt
  • 4 cheese croquettes


  • Clean the Brussels sprouts by trimming off the ends and peeling the outer layer of the sprout off. Cut each one in half.
  • Meanwhile, put a pot with a layer of salted water on the stove. When the water’s boiling, add the cleaned and cut potatoes to the water. Cook them for 15-20 minutes.
  • Preheat the deep frier for the cheese croquettes.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
  • Once heated, add the halved Brussel sprouts and the finely chopped garlic to the pan and saute for about 7-8 minutes on each side until the outer part is a caramelized brown and the inside is soft and fully cooked.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the cheese croquettes in the deep frier.
  • Reduce the heat under the pot of sprouts to low and add the lemon  juice, salt and pepper.
  • Sprinkle the gruyere on top and serve with the potatoes and cheese croquettes.
