Shredded Brussel Sprouts

I am a huge fan of brussels sprouts, always have been. For some reason, getting one of those huge stalks at the farmers market, is one my favorite things in the world. There is something about that beautiful green stalk peaking out of your canvas bag, that feels so right. I had big stalk that I grabbed while I was at the market and I couldn’t decide what to do with it. I absolutely love oven roasted brussels sprouts, but I always prepare them that way, I wanted to do something different. So after a little looking around, I came across many many recipes for sautéed shredded brussels sprouts. This sounded perfect. I was also very happy to discover that my amazing food processor, has an attachment for shredding. Who knew? That made shredding all the brussels sprouts, a breeze, it took me far longer to cut each one off of the stalk then to shred them all.

I didn’t have a large and deep enough skillet to cook the amount that I had, so I just used a large pot. The key is to get whatever pan you are using hot, but not too hot. If the heat is too high, you will cook them too fast. You want them tender, with a tad bit of a brown crisp to the outside. I found that since I had so many sprouts and I was cooking them in a pot rather than a skillet, the key was to keep stirring them around, so they wouldn’t just sit there and steam, only the bottom ones getting browned. Stirring allowed them to cook evenly and for all them to brown up nicely.

This is definitely going to be a winter side dish staple in our house. Perfect with so many different meals and I promise, even those that swear they hate brussels sprouts, would enjoy this. Looking to add a little meat? A bit of smoked ham, bacon or pancetta would be beautiful with this.

    Hi Beth!! i have a question if i needed to make a smaller serving size how would i modify the measurements ?

    • Tasty Yummies says:

      Nidia – I would just simply half or quarter the recipe. You could still use 1 garlic clove and just use a smaller clove. It’s a pretty easy and loose recipe, so just go by taste. It’s so delicious, I am trying to decide if I am going to make this for Thanksgiving this year or go with brussels sprouts a different way! I love em.

    Well I made it!!! I think I did too much garlic though. Ive realized if I can really taste the garlic I tend to not enjoy as much. But it was easy to do and defenitely helped keep dinner light!! Wonderful recipe!
