Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Lemon, Goat Cheese, and Walnuts

Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Walnuts and Goat Cheese

Yay! It’s brussels sprouts season!

These beautiful gems are one of my favorite fall/winter foods.

They’re like little cabbages that are so much fun to eat and prepare.

I really love them roasted (those crispy edges are divine), but when I’m in a rush, I’m all about thinly slicing them for a quick pan sauté.

You can purchase pre-shredded/shaved brussels sprouts in a bag, or you can quickly shave them yourself using the slicing blade on your food processor. It takes less than a minute to get through a few pounds and really cuts down on the cooking time.

Once you’ve shredded the sprouts, all it takes is a quick pan sauté on high heat to turn the sprouts into luscious deliciousness.

By cooking them over high heat, you’re still able to get some crispy bits and cook the sprouts fast enough that they stay bright and crisp and never get soggy and bitter. Winning.

I’m really obsessed with the combination of brussels and lemon, and it goes even better when you mix in some tangy creamy goat cheese. Finish with a sprinkle of crunchy walnuts & you’ve got yourself an awesome side dish.
