How Shave Brussel Sprouts?
Second Step, is to Shave the Brussel Sprouts. You can do this with a food processor or a knife.
You can make Shaved Brussel Sprouts in two ways.
Quickest Option is using a Food Processor.
- If you are working with a lot of Brussel Sprouts, a food processor will be the quickest option. You will have shaved sprouts in about 3o seconds.
- With the food processor you want to trim the ends of the Brussel Sprouts and use the slicing blade on the food processor.
- Turn on the food processor and add in the Brussel Sprouts. You don't want to pulse the Brussel Sprouts since we want thin slices. Added the shaved Brussel Sprouts to a bowl.
Second Option is using a Knife.
- First rinse and remove any damaged leaves.
- Slice the Brussel Sprout in half lengthwise. Lay the Brussel Sprout facing flat down and begin creating thin strips with the knife and discard the end. When cutting vegetables you want a stable flat surface. It is a safer that way.
- Once the Brussel Sprouts are sliced you can peel apart the shavings with your hands. Add the shaved Brussel Sprouts to a bowl.
You can make the shaved Brussel Sprouts in advance and store in the refrigerator whether you are using knife or a food processor.
