RICOTTA & HERB STUFFED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

March 14, 2014
Rachel Schultz

You’ve stuffed mushrooms. And bell peppers. Even potatoes (yum). But now I’m stuffing brussels sprouts. It’s all the goodness of stuffed-ness, but on a smaller (and probably greener) scale.

RICOTTA & HERB STUFFED BRUSSELS SPROUTS from Rachel Schultz-4

RICOTTA & HERB STUFFED BRUSSELS SPROUTS
Serves 2-3

15 brussels sprouts, de-stemed and halved
1 cup ricotta
1 cup parmesan, shredded
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon dried basil
1 tablespoon dried sage
Salt & pepper
Olive Oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bring a pot of water to boil and blanch brussels sprouts for 1-2 minutes.

Using a paring knife, hollow out the inside of the brussels.

Save insides of brussels and chop with a large knife. Combine with olive oil and garlic in a skillet over medium heat for 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir together garlic and brussels with ricotta, panko, parmesan, and herbs. Season with salt & pepper. Scoop filling into hollowed brussels. Bake for 20 minutes.

    Hi I just wanna say i am in New Zealand in lockdown and just have to cook with whatever I have. Which today happens to be Brussels sprouts and ricotta. I googled and came to your recipe and found some old parmesan in the fridge and herbs in my garden. I made this dish for my dinner. It was AMAZING. My daughter who detests brussel sprouts even ate some. Loved the fresh Italian flavours. Thank you. Hope youre safe and well

    Can you make these brussel sprouts ahead of time? And bake the day of?
    Thanks!!

  • Why don’t you cook pork (loin or tenderloin) often, or ever? So easy. So yummy.

      I have many recipes for this!

  • I never thought I liked brussels sprouts…until I tried them! And now I am a little obsessed. They are so stinkin’ good, and stuffing them sounds even better!
