These warm lemon parmesan shaved brussels sprouts with garlic and pine nuts make a bright and flavorful side dish in just 15 minutes! (vegetarian, gluten-free)


  • 2 tbsp pine nuts
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 4 cups brussels sprouts, shredded or thinly sliced
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp whole grain mustard
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese


  1. Trim woody stems from brussels sprouts and thinly slice.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium low heat. Add pine nuts and toast until fragrant. Set aside.
  3. Add olive oil and garlic to the pan and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  4. Add shredded brussels sprouts and cook an additional 5-6 minutes or until bright green, stirring occasionally.
  5. Turn off heat and stir in lemon juice, mustard, salt, pepper and parmesan. Serve immediately.


  • Don't discard the spare leaves that fall off when you are cutting the brussels sprouts. They're delicious!
  • You can leave the pine nuts out if you don't have them, or substitute walnuts or almonds.
  • You can substitute spicy brown mustard for the whole grain mustard.
  • Be sure to use good quality parmesan and freshly shave it yourself (with a microplane zester if you have one).
