Ingredients

1¾ pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed, outer leaves removed
5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
12 medium-size shallots, thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Working in small batches, place the Brussels sprouts in the feeding tube of a food processor that has been fitted with a thin slicing disk and slice the sprouts. Alternatively, slice them by hand into thin slices.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat and sauté the shallots until they’re almost translucent, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute, then add the Brussels sprouts. Increase the heat to medium-high and sauté the Brussels sprouts until tender, about 8 minutes.
  4. Stir in the lemon juice, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to a serving bowl.
