Total Time30 mins


  • Food Processor
  • Saute Pan with Lid


  • 3/4 lb Brussels sprouts
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds toasted
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 tbsp apple juice optional
  • salt and pepper


  • Trim ends of sprouts and run through food processor using slicing disc to shave.
  • Heat coconut oil in saute pan over medium high heat. Add 1 slice of Brussels sprout to test heat, when oil is very hot add remaining sprouts. Stir to evenly coat in coconut oil.
  • Saute for 3-4 minutes, until sprouts are beginning to soften, stirring occasionally. Add salt and pepper.
  • Add cranberries and almonds and mix well. Add apple juice if using, cover pan and reduce heat to medium low.
  • Cook until sprouts are soft, 1-2 minutes. Serve immediately.


With shaved Brussels sprouts adding liquid like apple juice is not mandatory. I added a little for flavor but you could easily skip it and they would cook fine with just the steam once you put the lid on.
