Shredded Brussels Sprouts with Basil and Pine Nuts
uncooked Brussels sprouts
2 pound(s), ends and brown outer leaves trimmed
fresh lemon juice
3 medium, minced
¼ cup(s), fresh, minced
8 tsp(s), toasted
- Working in batches, place Brussels sprouts in a food processor and pulse until shredded. If you don’t have a food processor, thinly slice using a mandolin. Or using a knife, halve each Brussels sprout and then thinly slice it lengthwise.
- Melt butter over medium-high heat in a large nonstick skillet. Add shallots and cook, stirring frequently, 1 minute. Add Brussels sprouts and sauté until leaves are bright green and inner sections soften slightly, about 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in lemon juice, basil, salt and pepper; garnish with pine nuts and serve. Yields about 1 cup Brussels sprouts and 1 teaspoon pine nuts per serving.
