Brussels sprouts are a super easy vegetable to serve. Toss them with a little olive oil and salt and stick them in the oven, and they become crispy and delicious pretty quickly.
But if you want to really impress your significant other or dinner guests (or are just bored of your usual Brussels approach), this recipe will take things up a notch.
When you shave the sprouts instead of chopping and cooking them, they make a great base for a crisp salad. Here, we toss them with sweet figs, grapefruit, and pecorino and add a final dreamy ingredient: crunchy, herb-toasted hazelnuts.
WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE
Like their close cousin kale, brussels sprouts are a super nutrient-dense vegetable. They’re filled with fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. And while this recipe is totally simple, it’s sophisticated enough that you’ll totally get some cooking cred by serving it.
