Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes Recipe – 4 Smart Points

Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes

Brussel sprouts. It seems that most people either love them or hate them. I fall into the “love them” category, and I’m grateful that my kids do too! There are many ways to prepare them, but my absolute favorite method is roasting. It brings out the most delicious flavor, and I just cannot get enough of them! In this recipe, I paired them with some sweet potatoes, added some delicious seasonings, and then finished it off by tossing them in red wine vinegar. The flavor combination was spectacular! Something about the earthy, almost bitter taste of the brussel sprouts, with the tender sweetness of the sweet potatoes, just makes this dish mouthwateringly good. And each serving comes out to just 4 Smart Points. So if you need an easy, yet impressive veggie side dish, this Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes Recipe is a great one to try. Enjoy!

Moroccan Apricot Chicken – 5 Points +

Moroccan Apricot Chicken

One great thing about having my in-laws visit, is that I always pickup a few delicious Middle Eastern style recipes that taste like I’ve spent hours cooking them, but are actually quite simple. This Moroccan Apricot Chicken Recipe is just that. The chicken is fall-off-the-bone tender and is unbelievably moist and juicy. It’s rubbed in a combination of spices, seared, and then braised to perfection in the most delicious sauce. And it’s all done in one pot (you know I love those one pot meals)! This chicken turns out perfect EVERY time I cook it, and it’s become a staple for dinner parties or big family dinners. Serve over rice or couscous, along with some roasted veggies or salad for a complete meal. Enjoy!

Glazed Turnips Recipe – 2 Points +

Glazed Turnips

Oh, the poor turnip. It’s commonly ignored at the supermarket, while shoppers fill up their cart with all the more popular produce, and the turnip just sits there, usually beside it’s brother – the beet, going mostly unnoticed. Until now, that is. After getting some beautiful fresh turnips in my Farm Fresh to You box recently, I was eager to give the turnip a try. They are so delicious!! I cannot believe I’ve never cooked them before. I came up with this glazed turnips recipe that was absolutely delicious, and lovely to look at as well. If you’ve never had turnips before, they taste very similar to a potato, and I think they’d work great as a lighter substitute for potatoes in many Weight Watchers Recipes that call for potatoes. But when I made them on their own, as a simple and easy vegetable side dish, I definitely became a turnip fan, and promise to no longer ignore them at the grocery store.

Lavender Chicken Recipe with Asparagus – 4 Points +

Lavender Chicken Recipe with Asparagus

Inspired by one of my favorite French recipes, I created this incredibly delicious Lavender Chicken Recipe with Asparagus. It’s so fresh and light, and makes the perfect summer or spring dinner idea. The delicate lavender flavor is absolutely divine and is perfectly balanced. I also love the idea of using this as an Easter brunch or dinner recipe since the beautiful lavender flowers make it as aesthetically pleasing, as it does tasty. It’s a surprisingly easy chicken recipe that has just 4 Points + per serving, making it a great Weight Watchers meal idea. The only key to this recipe is getting your hands on some lavender cooking oil and lavender flower herbs. I actually used a lavender infused truffle oil from Uncle Berch (maker of the AMAZING Chipotle Pepper Jam) the first time I made this, but a lavender infused olive oil works just as well, and is easier to find. You can buy it online, at a Sur La Table, or Williams Sonoma. As for the lavender flower herbs, you can also buy these online or in a local gourmet culinary store. I found some at Whole Foods and Henry’s Market. This is truly an amazing and unique chicken recipe that not only is fantastic, but a great way to keep you on track with your Weight Watchers plan and add a little variety and French flair to your plate. Enjoy!
