Shredded Brussels Sprouts and Sausage

I got a food processor! I can’t believe I never had one before. I feel a little guilty for feeling like I needed one because we already have a Vitamix. It’s an awesome kitchen tool, though. It makes food prep a breeze. For this recipe, I was able to shred 2 pounds of raw Brussels sprouts in just two batches. The whole process of setting it up, shredding the brussels, and cleaning the machine took less than 5 minutes.

The original recipe comes from PaleOMG.com; this version is a little modified. All the recipes I’ve tried by Juli have been amazing, and this one is no exception!

Ingredients:
2 lbs raw Brussels sprouts, shredded using the slicing attachment on a food processor
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 large onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
4 links precooked sausage (I used artichoke mozzarella chicken sausage)
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
1. Heat coconut oil in a dutch oven or large stockpot. Add the diced onions and cook over medium heat for about 3 minutes, until they begin to caramelize and soften. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds more.
2. Add the shredded Brussels sprouts, sliced sausage, and apple cider vinegar. Stir in until the brussels begin to wilt down. Cover the dutch oven or stockpot and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 15 minutes or until the brussels shreds are tender.
3. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
