How do you shred brussel sprouts with a food processor?

The 2 ways to shred brussel sprouts with a food processor

  1. Use the shredding attachment on the food processor and add the brussel sprouts 1-2 at a time to shred down. An entire pound will take about 1 minute using this method. 
  2. Use the regular blade of the food processor and add 10-12 brussel sprouts at a time and pulse until the brussel sprouts appear shredded. Continue in batches until all the brussels have been shredded.

What nuts can you use in this recipe?

Make ahead tips:

  • Brussel sprouts can be shredded up to 3 days ahead of time. Just store them in a airtight container to keep them fresh. You can also buy brussel sprouts already shredded to help save time.
  • Apples tend to brown if you peel/cut them early. To make sure the apples don’t get brown and mushy, add a bit of lemon juice to the apples if you decide to prep them the day before.
  • This entire recipe can be cooked ahead of time (during meal prep) and reheated easily in the microwave or on the stove top.
