    Does anyone know where the "shredding" comes in? The name of this recipe is "Lemony SHREDDED Brussels Sprouts" but the instructions don't tell you when to shred the sprouts.

    So it may be crazy how much I loved these. I have been telling everyone I know about my new way to cook brussels sprouts. I usually roast them, but this is so light and easy. I really love it. Others enjoyed them as well, but with perhaps less enthusiasm.
