Recipe by Manami
READY IN: 45mins
SERVES: 8-10




  • Using a sharp knife or mandoline, thinly slice brussels sprouts crosswise, discarding root ends. (The "shaved" sprouts should resemble confetti.).
  • Pour vegetable oil into a large pot over high heat; add pancetta and stir until slightly crisp, about 5 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to medium-high, add brussels sprouts, and cook, stirring often, until sprouts are bright green and tender, 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Add salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper flakes, & cashews and toss to warm.
  • Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese or Pecorino Romano or Asiago cheese.
  • Serve hot.
  • Notes:.
  • *Use a fork stuck in the core end of the sprout to keep your fingers away from the blade.
  • **To toast cashews put them on a baking sheet spread out, in a 350ºF oven for 10 minutes, & they will toast nicely.
