All About These Shaved Brussels Sprouts With Pine Nuts And Cranberries

I am a huge fan of Brussels sprouts in any form or fashion. While my all-time favorite way to enjoy them is by roasting them in the oven, my close second favorite way to make them is this way: Shaved Brussels Sprouts With Pine Nuts And Cranberries.

This side dish is delightfully simple, yet it combines savory and sweet to satisfy all of your taste buds. I also love that it is so versatile; you can make substitutions several different ways here, which I will outline next.

Variations To This Recipe

There are so many fun variations that you can do for this recipe. Here are a few:

  • Instead of pine nuts, consider using slivered almonds, pumpkin seeds, or walnuts.
  • Opt for another dried fruit besides cranberries. Dried cherries or raisins would be delicious!
  • Top with a crumbled cheese like feta or goat cheese. Yum!

What You’ll Need

Equipment

  • Mandolin slicer (optional)
  • Knife and cutting board (optional)
  • Frying pan
  • Spoon

Ingredients

  • Avocado oil spray (or any cooking spray of your choice)
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Pine nuts
  • Reduced sugar dried cranberries
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Garlic powder

How To Make These Shaved Brussels Sprouts With Pine Nuts And Cranberries

In order to save time, I love buying shaved Brussels sprouts from the store. I find mine at Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s. If you are not using shaved Brussels sprouts, use a mandolin slicer (carefully!) or knife and cutting board to thinly slice the Brussels sprouts.

Spray a frying pan with avocado oil spray and saute the Brussels sprouts over medium heat for about 5-7 minutes until they start to soften. Add the pine nuts and dried cranberries and saute for another 2-3 minutes.

Season with salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes if desired. Remove from heat and serve warm.
