Roasted Parmesan Brussels Sprouts


Whoever decided that Brussels sprouts would come to be known as the enemy vegetable of children was way off. When seasoned and roasted properly this vitamin packed veg is savory and delicious! Plus you can tell your little ones it is Barbie lettuce (or G.I. Joe) and they will think its fun. Here’s a quick and impressive recipe for any night of the week.


Fun Fact: Did you know that Brussels Sprouts are named after the city in Belgium?


Slice the brussels in half lengthwise and add to a large bowl.


Drizzle with enough olive oil to lightly coat each piece (don’t overdo it or they will be greasy).


Add salt, pepper, garlic powder and parmesan cheese.


Pour onto a baking sheet and roast at 400 for about 20-25 minutes.


Give them a toss about half way through to make sure they roast on both sides.



The parmesan cheese sort of crusts on the brussels and creates an amazing flavour/texture combination. Try it! I know you’ll like it.









Roasted Tarragon Potatoes

Do you often ruin meals for no apparent reason?

Do you find yourself scrambling to find a decent side dish that isn’t in a can?

Do you want to impress your friends, spouse or even just yourself?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions I can help.

Here is how you can make the easiest roasted potatoes of all time. They are delicious, gorgeous and saying “tarragon” makes you sound ultra fancy. Do this…

Cut small red potatoes in half, then slice. Come on! You don’t even have to peel the potatoes!

Throw all your slices in a large mixing bowl then add salt, pepper, garlic powder, a few teaspoons of tarragon (or more! by all means) then drizzle with olive oil and toss.

Pour the potatoes onto a silpat lined baking sheet and even out your potatoes so none of them are on top of each other.

Bake on 375 for 20 minutes, or until desired crispness.

To make them more like chips- bake at 275 for 45 minutes.

That’s all folks! Serve them with something amazing like this savory burger with goat cheese and whole grain mustard. You’re sure to dazzle!
