Have you ever tried shredded brussel sprouts? Omg – they might even be more delicious than regular brussel sprouts! This was so amazing, that I made it again for my Christmas Eve dinner! The hazelnuts add a special, elegant touch!
And a pic of my original kitchen assistant, Max, not eating sprouts of course – but his fave… chocolate!
1/2 cup blanched hazelnuts
1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 small shallot, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
Kosher salt and cracked black pepper
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spread the hazelnuts on a baking sheet and bake until golden, 6 to 8 minutes. Let cool, then chop.
Halve the Brussels sprouts lengthwise and thinly slice them crosswise into fine ribbons. You should have about 6 cups.
In a large skillet set over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil. Add the shallot and cook 1 minute. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds. Add the Brussels sprouts and cook, stirring, until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the maple syrup and hazelnuts and cook 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve hot
