Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Sweet Craisins, Chopped Pistachios & Parmesan Cheese

Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Sweet Craisins, Chopped Pistachios, & Buttery Parmesan Cheese

These Shaved Brussels Sprouts topped with sweet Craisins, chopped Pistachios & a sprinkling of creamy, salty Parmesan Cheese are totally addicting, and, if you aren’t a Brussels Sprouts kind of person, this dish will leave you wanting more and changing your mind!



  1. Cut off the woody ends of each Brussels Sprout. Cut each Brussels Sprout in half through the root, then slice thinly, or if you have a food processor, use the slicing thick blade attachment and run them through your machine.  In a pinch on time, see note below for purchasing shaved Brussels Sprouts.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet set over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are soft and caramelized, 5-10 minutes.
  3. Add garlic and continue to stir and cook 1-2 more minutes.  Make sure not to burn the garlic and onions…they will turn bitter!
  4. Add the Brussels sprouts and stir. See note below for steaming them without adding more oil!  Cook, stirring occasionally, until the Brussels sprouts are tender, but still bright green.
  5. Stir in the pistachios, dried cranberries, Parmesan cheese and salt and pepper. Taste and season with additional salt, if needed.
  6. Transfer to a serving dish, and top with additional sprinkling of cheese, pistachios, or Craisins. Next, sprinkle a little white balsamic vinegar (our favorite is the Cranberry Pear White Balsamic from Redstone Olive Oil Co.).  The vinegar gives this dish a bright pop of intense flavor.  You will love it!  Keep warm until ready to serve.
