Favorite Keto Christmas Recipe #2: Creamy Garlic Parmesan Brussels Sprouts



  • 2 lbs of Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • 1 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup of grated Mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Toss Brussels sprouts in olive oil, salt, and pepper. Arrange them on a baking tray and roast for about 20-25 minutes, or until tender and slightly caramelized.
  3. While the sprouts are roasting, heat the butter in a large pan over medium heat. Add minced garlic and sauté until fragrant.
  4. Add the heavy cream to the pan and bring to a simmer. Stir in the Parmesan cheese until melted and the sauce thickens.
  5. Remove the Brussels sprouts from the oven and mix them into the garlic parmesan cream sauce until well coated.

Ingredient Swaps

This recipe is fairly versatile, and several ingredients can be swapped to cater to different dietary needs or preferences:

  • Brussels sprouts: You can substitute Brussels sprouts with other keto-friendly veggies like cauliflower or broccoli.
  • Olive oil: If you prefer, you can replace olive oil with avocado oil, which has a higher smoke point and mild flavor.
  • Butter: Use ghee or coconut oil as a dairy-free alternative to butter.
  • Heavy cream: Coconut cream can be used as a dairy-free alternative to heavy cream. Make sure to buy unsweetened versions.
  • Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese: There are many dairy-free cheese alternatives on the market made from almond milk, cashews, or other plant-based ingredients. Ensure you choose a product with no added sugars to keep it keto-friendly.
