Ingredients for Making Roasted Shredded Brussel Sprouts
- Brussels Sprouts: Any size of Brussels Sprouts works well for this recipe. Smaller Brussels sprouts will be easiest to shave using a food processor.
- Avocado Oil: Avocado oil has a high smoke point, making it ideal for roasting vegetables. You could also use olive oil (not extra-virgin) or another favorite oil in this recipe.
- Sugar: I like to add a little sugar to my Brussels sprouts when I roast them. It helps caramelize the outside of the sprouts and gives them a little sweetness. You could also use honey or maple syrup.
- Salt and Pepper: Adjust the seasoning to taste. Use fresh ground black pepper and either sea salt or kosher salt.
- Parmesan Cheese: Freshly grated parmesan cheese is best - the canned stuff just doesn’t deliver on flavor.
- Balsamic Vinegar: This adds a punch of flavor for finishing. You could also use balsamic glaze, which is slightly sweet. If balsamic vinegar isn’t your thing, finish with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
Tips & Tricks
- Use a food processor, sharp knife, or mandoline to thinly slice the Brussels sprouts. If cut too thick, they will take longer to cook and won't get as crispy.
- Before roasting, toss the Brussels sprouts with avocado oil, sugar, salt, and pepper. This will help coat the sprouts evenly and ensure that they cook evenly.
- Roast the Brussels sprouts on a sheet pan lined with foil or parchment paper for easy cleanup. (I prefer parchment.)
- Keep an eye on the Brussels sprouts while roasting, especially towards the end of the cooking time. Every oven is different, and you don't want your roasted shaved Brussels sprouts to overcook or burn.
- To make this recipe vegan, skip the parmesan cheese or use your favorite plant-based cheese. (It is already vegetarian and gluten-free.)
- Make sure you trim your Brussels sprouts before shaving them. You want to cut the ends and remove the outer leaves.
This recipe works great with so many different dishes. Here are a few of my favorite serving suggestions:
- Serve with air fryer chicken thighs or turkey breast.
- Pair with Blackstone steak, hanger steak, or grilled salmon.
- Add to a fall salad with roasted butternut squash, cranberries, and quinoa.
- Enjoy as a healthy snack right out of the oven.
