Tip: To shred Brussels sprouts, first use a knife to cut off any woody stems. Then use the knife or the slicing attachment of a food processor to shred the sprouts (see below). To simplify, purchase sliced Brussels sprouts from the produce section.
• To use a chef's knife: Slice Brussels sprouts in half vertically. Place cut-side down on a cutting board and thinly slice. Separate slices into shreds.
• To use a food processor: Fit a food processor with a slicing blade and, with the motor running, drop the sprouts through the food chute. Separate slices into shreds, if needed.
