Coconut Roasting and a Tropical Treat

As the temperature drops outside, I’ve noticed that I’ve been drawn to using my oven much more. In particular, I’ve found myself warming that baby up on almost a nightly basis to roast vegetables for dinner.

Coconut oil is one of my new favorite finds, and on top of that, Tropical Traditions is my jam! I’ve tried other coconut oils and have found that while they’re great for roasting, they don’t impart any additional flavor. Tropical Traditions coconut oil has a touch of coconut flavor that really kicks my veggies up a notch. Brussel sprouts are my go-to favorite right now, but you can really roast any vegetable using the same method, and just adjust the amount of time.

Barr & Table Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil Roasted Brussel Sprouts

1 lb brussel sprouts
1/2 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1-2 tsp garlic powder

Preheat your oven to 400°F. Chop the stem end of the brussel sprouts off and slice in half. Spread on a baking sheet and coat in coconut oil and spices. Bake about 20 minutes until tender, flipping 1 or 2 times. Enjoy!

  1. I looooove coconut oil! I use it instead of cooking spray to cook my protein pancakes on the stove, for roasting veggies, and when I’m baking! I love the flavor it gives food and the health benefits you get from it!

  2. YES!! I’ve been wanting to try this!! I haven’t used coconut oil before but I love roasting veggies so this would be PERFECT!

  3. Not a big coconut oil fan so not entering this giveaway but I just had to tell you that the Brussels sprouts photo made me legit SWOON. I had some last night, holy crap, so good. Leftovers in my lunch today. Is it noon yet?!

  6. I have a new-found love for the use of coconut oil in the kitchen! Up until recently I the only use I knew of for it was as a hair and skin moisturizer, however, as I have become more health-conscious and strive to eat only nourishing, whole foods, I have been looking for alternatives to your run of the mill “vegetable” oil. Coconut oil is by far one of the best substitutes as it is both nutritionally dense as well as versatile in the ways it can be used. I plan on using it for baking as well as sauteing. A friend of mine recently used it to fry fish and said the taste was out of this world!

  7. Thanks for having the giveaway! I love coconut oil, so it is hard to pick one favorite use! I use it to cook, I eat it by the tablespoon, I use it on my skin. I guess if I had to pick a favorite, it would be coconut bark! Just mix with cocoa powder or baking chocolate, coconut shreds, etc
    I did all of the above entry requirements. 🙂 Tweeted, followed, liked both you and T.T.

  8. Liked you both on Facebook. Guess I didn’t realize B & T had a FB page or I would’ve liked earlier…for more proatmeal recipes of course!
