Buttery Shredded Brussels Sprouts

These are the most delicious brussels sprouts I’ve ever had. Hands down. That may sound like a crazy thing to say, but feed these to your resident brussels sprouts hater, and you will turn them into a believer.

Often touted as one of the world’s healthiest foods, brussels sprouts are loaded in fiber, Vitamins C&K, folate, B6, manganese, choline, and have the highest concentration of glucosinolate of all cruciferous vegetables. Glucosinolates are phytonutrients that play a large roll in cancer prevention. So yes, they are amazing for you and can also be rather delicious.

This recipe can be adjusted to meet a vegan diet by swapping the butter for a vegan buttery spread. You may also choose to substitute olive oil for the butter if you are looking for a healthier choice with less saturated fat.
