Sauted Shaved Brussel Sprouts

This side dish is quick and easy and it’s even for the Brussel sprout haters.

If you have lots of time on your hands and like to do everything from scratch, feel free to shave your Brussel sprouts. But I prefer to buy mine already shaved at Trader Joe’s.

They are  just that – nothing else. They can be used raw in salads and slaws, or cooked in any number of ways. Sauté them in a bit of olive oil and garlic, and drizzle them with honey just before you take them off the heat. You can roast them at 425′ for a few minutes drizzled with a little olive oil and salt and pepper. TJ’s sells them in a 10oz. bag.



  • 1 package Brussel Sprouts Trader Joes
  • 2 T. Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Heat the oil. Spread the brussel sprouts evenly in a medium sauté pan. Cook until lightly charred {3-5 min.}. Stirring a few times with a rubber spatula.

    Pour in the water and let simmer until water is evaporated and sprouts are tender. Apx. 5 min. Salt and pepper to taste. If you have some good finishing olive oil you can drizzle a bit on before serving.

Recipe Notes

***There's a recipe on the back of the bag but I don't care for the vinegar - but it's your party so play it however you want.

***Leftovers are great mixed in a salad or served cold with some roasted pine nuts. I've even seen a version that has fresh shaved parmesan on top.


Nicely caramelized… slightly sweet.
