Found this on a site called "skinny weight watchers recipes". I HATE brussel sprouts and LOVE this!! I've even gotten my kids and husband to eat brussel sprouts too! I make these at least 1-2 times per week!


  1. Finely shred the brussels sprouts after thoroughly washing.
  2. In a sauté pan, heat olive oil. Add shallots and crushed red peppers and sauté about 2 minutes, add garlic and saute until golden. Add brussels sprouts, salt and pepper and sauté on medium-low for about 4-5 minutes.

I love Brussels sprouts and I enjoyed this a lot. It's not bogged down in a heavy sauce so your sprouts are the star of the dish. I used butter in place of olive oil. I sautéed my sprouts for an extra couple of minutes. I liked the red pepper flakes; they gave a nice kick ( I used maybe a little over a 1/2 tsp). If you love Brussels sprouts like I do, this is a nice, easy, guilt-free way to enjoy them. Thanx!

It's super that 'ChicagoRN' shows us a way to cook 'BS' that isn't just boiled. Followed the recipe as written (less chili). The result was nice but it didn't 'ring the bells'. Maybe this is because I didn't include the chili.
