Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Shred the Brussels sprouts using a food processor fitted with the slicing blade, a sharp knife or a mandoline.

  • In a large, deep skillet over medium-low heat, toast the pecans, stirring often, until aromatic, 2 to 4 minutes; remove and set aside. Return skillet to stove; over medium heat, cook bacon slices until crisp. Transfer to paper towels and set aside. Add the shredded Brussels sprouts and toss to coat with the fat. Cook for 3 minutes, then add the garlic and cook 1 more minute or until sprouts are lightly wilted.

  • Remove from heat. Season with salt and pepper, crumbled bacon slices and lemon juice. Add toasted pecans and toss to combine. Serve warm.
