Catherine McCord, the founder of Weelicious, a website with easy, kid-friendly recipes for busy parents, created this side dish. Shredding makes the brussels sprouts beautiful and lacy.


  • 1 lemon

  • 1 pound brussels sprouts, stem ends trimmed, finely sliced

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 2 teaspoons poppy seeds

  • ¼ cup low-sodium chicken stock


  1. Using a vegetable peeler, peel 3 long strips of lemon zest, avoiding white pith. Thinly slice zest; set aside. Squeeze 1 Tbsp. lemon juice and toss with brussels sprouts in a medium bowl.

  2. Heat butter and oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Saute sprouts for 2 minutes, until bright green and tender. Add salt, pepper, garlic, zest, and poppy seeds and cook an additional 2 minutes. Pour in stock and cook 1 minute more.
