Many people get turned off from brussels sprouts early on. Sure they can be bitter and tasteless if not prepared correctly.

My recipe will transform the pickiest sprout people. I have served this many times to doubtful guests who have been transformed into brussels sprouts lovers. Really.

What makes them so fabulous and different is making sure to slice the sprouts super thin.

Of course, you cannot go wrong with feta cheese, pecans and smoked paprika thrown into the mix.

With my savories I often like a hint of sweetness, a nice pop from pomegranate seeds, dried cranberries, golden raisins or in this case goji berries is a nice flavor twist.

I have been meaning to post this recipe for a few years and it has always gotten bookmarked for “the right time.”

Happily the time is now and hopefully you get to enjoy this recipe at your holiday table or any time at all!

  1. What a gorgeous dish of brussels sprouts! I bought a huge stalk from Trader Joe’s the other day and still have half of them left – must give this a try!

  2. You are preaching to the converted – I adore Brussels sprouts and would eat them as a main course like this – love that you used Goji berries – so pretty with the pink and the green and the white…

  3. Yeah I have definitely been one to prepare them wrong! Eeeek they are horrible when done wrong! But I am definitely willing to try them this way 😉 They look and sound really good with the feta and pecans! And oh my I love that fork! It is beautiful 😀

  4. I love that you use a cast iron skillet too. I love mine. We are recent converts to the benefits of brussels sprouts, so I’m always looking for new recipes. This looks amazing.
