Vegan Recipe: Shredded Lemon and Garlic Brussels Sprouts

Shredded Lemon and Garlic Brussels Sprouts

By Mary Papadimos,

The “parmesan” flavor in this recipe comes from nutritional yeast. I started cooking with nutritional yeast about a year ago and it’s a game changer. Some of you are probably thinking ew? What? Yesssss. Nutritional yeast is a fabulous dairy free culinary wonder with benefits ranging from 4 grams of fiber in 2 tbsp to being a great source of folic acid. Not to mention, it gives this dish some nutty flavor and parmesan cheesy goodness, which perfectly complements the lemon and garlic.


1 small bag of brussels sprouts
1/8 cup olive oil
1 1/2 tbsp nutritional yeast
Juice of one medium lemon (add more or less depending on how much you like lemon)
1 large clove of garlic
1 tbsp chopped onion or shallots
Salt and pepper to taste


Chop up the sprouts and sauté them with the other ingredients on medium heat for 5-7 minutes!
