Serves 4


  • 3 cups shaved Brussels sprouts (1 full bag of Trader Joe's Shaved Brussels Sprouts)
  • 1/2 red onion or shallot, diced
  • 3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. chicken broth
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 Tbsp. honey or light agave nectar
  • Optional: 1/4 cup chopped walnuts


    Heat oil in large sauté pan to medium heat and add onions, Brussels sprouts, salt and pepper.

    After stirring for 2 to 3 minutes, add chicken broth, garlic and honey (or agave nectar) and stir on low heat for another couple of minutes (taste along the way to get the right amount of crunch from your sprouts—some like Brussels sprouts crunchy, but some prefer them to be more wilted).

    Add walnuts, if desired.
