sautéed Brussels sprouts















  • 1 1/2 lbs. Brussels sprouts
  • 2 Tbsp. grapeseed oil
  • 2 oz. pancetta (or bacon), finely chopped
  • 1 shallot finely diced
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Parmesan cheese (shaved into strips)


  1. Trim the Brussels sprouts and discard any damaged outside leaves.
  2. Using a food processor, force the sprouts a few at a time through the chute with the blade in motion. You should have about 8 cups of shredded sprouts.
  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pancetta and cook, stirring often, until very lightly browned 3-5 minutes. Add the sprouts and cook, stirring, until tender, about 5 minutes.
  4. Pour in the vinegar and increase the heat to high. Season with salt and pepper and stir until the vinegar has evaporated.
  5. Top with Parmesan strips and serve.

Tip: Add red and or yellow pepper strips while sautéing pancetta for a boost of color, flavor and nutrition.
