Heidi Swanson, the writer-photographer-foodie behind, made me fall in love with Brussels sprouts last year, when she published Super Natural Cooking. Seems she impressed some, ah, slightly more professional palates as well: Swanson’s cookbook has recently been short-listed for a 2008 James Beard Foundation Award in the category of “healthy focus.”

We caught up with the multitalented Swanson in our July/August 2007 issue. Check out what she had to say about her award-worthy cookbook and getting away from processed foods, and then go cook up some of her signature golden-crusted sprouts.
