Culinary Technique TipLightly cooking the Brussels sprouts not only helps to keep them crunchy, but helps them retain more cancer-fighting isothiocyanates.

2 tablespoons Dijon or hot Dijon mustard
1/4 cup whole raw unsalted almonds
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

Comments on Mustard & Almond Roasted Chicken Thighs with Toasty Brussels Sprouts & Honeyed Yogurt
This is by far one of the most delicious dinners yet. My husband couldn't stop raving.
This sounds so delicious and it's totally nutritious too. Has so many essential vitamins and protein and a touch of fat.
Looking forward to trying this recipe. Thank you, Dr. LaPuma and best of luck with your new book. I've ordered a copy for my cousin.
