“I recommend cooking this for your next holiday party, you will most definitely stand out from the crowd..”

I know you are here for the Roasted Carrot and Brussels Sprouts recipe, but let me tell you a little back story on how Kroger helped me and my friend make this perfect recipe.

Last week I attended the most amazing summit hosted by Kroger Co. What was the topic of the day? Creating food content and influencer marketing. I have worked with Kroger in the past so I was aware of some of the things Kroger does, such as #ClickList. Click list is a service Kroger offers where you can order your groceries online, and get them dropped off at your home same day. Check out my post on it here.  It truly is a game changer for someone that hates spending time in the grocery store trying to find a few items.

We also learned some pretty interesting information, like how to create long lasting relationships with brands, and also how to create the best food content to appeal to our followers. In hopes of sharing a little more about how Kroger helps the latin community by carrying everyday ingredients that we use, we all took on the challenge. Each influencer cooked and brought a dish with a latin twist by only using Kroger products. Although, I was unable to cook the recipe myself due to other projects I was able to still bring the dish and everyone enjoyed it. Thanks to Ginger Harper, for helping you’re girl out in critical situations like this one. I must say, she did a freaking amazing job cause these veggies were so delicious. The avocado tomatillo salsa verde sauce is what made these carrots and brussels sprouts so different, it was tangy, a little spicy and just that perfect latin twist you would need for a holiday potluck. I recommend cooking this for your next holiday party, you will most definitely stand out from the crowd and I can guarantee everyone will love it.
