Award Winning – {Recipe ReDux}

I’m thrilled to be a contributor for the fabulous group Recipe Redux.  An online recipe challenge founded by registered dietitians that is focused on creating healthy, good for you dishes that are delicious.  Sometimes this means coming up with new healthy recipes and sometimes it means recreating some of our favorite yummy dishes by making them better for you {but still tasty}.

This month’s Redux is all about the Oscars.  Foods that reflect the movies, the stars or the ceremony itself.  One of the most special places at the Oscars…is the green room.  The place were the stars gather themselves together before their big debut.  So in honor of that, my choice for this fabulous foodie category is “favorite green things”  Green things that are packed with good for you nutrition but are also super yummy.

And the award goes to…The Brussels Sprouts {and the crowd roars}

But not just any old set of brussels sprouts…brussels sprouts that are so delicious even a “non believer” will gobble them up {that’s right honey…i’m talking about you}.

Parmesan & Caper Roasted Brussels Sprouts


  • brussels Sprouts
  • coconut oil
  • shredded or shaved parmesan
  • capers
  • tom yum soup starter {or alternate broth of choice…chicken broth, etc}


  • Preheat oven to 350°, clean sprouts & cut in half
  • Throw cut sprouts in a coconut oil coated pan, and bake until edges start to brown, approx 20 minutes {i like to finish them off with a few minutes on broil to get them a little crispy}
  • In an oven safe bowl, toss the cooked sprouts with enough broth to coat, add spoon full of capers {or more if you really love them} and shredded parmesan.  Stir until all mixed together.
  • Place mixture back in oven for approximately a minute so the parmesan can start to melt and enjoy!

*If using broth other then tom yum, add a squeeze of lemon or lime for a bit of acidity.


So delicious, so nutritious, so worthy of this esteemed award…the Brussel…love those things! These yummy little things specialize in detoxifying cancer causing chemicals in your body and ladies…they are extra good for supporting the health of your ovaries!

Soak up the applause Brussels sprouts…soak it up…the audience loves you!!

    I’ve always loved brussel sprouts, even as a child. How do kids react to this recipe. Mine seem to be vege-phobes.
