brussels sprouts

These Brussels are inspired by the famed Union Square Cafe in New York City, and they are SO delicious.  They are sliced thin (I use a mandolin for this) and tossed with lemon, fragrant onion and garlic, and poppy seeds for a unique take on this controversial vegetable.  They are light, bright, and perfect for summer.

“what else can I use?”


  • I use a mandolin to shave my Brussels, but a sharp knife or food processor works as well.



  • The poppy seeds are more for texture and look than anything else, so if you don’t have any don’t let it stop you from making this recipe!


If you make this Brussels sprouts, and I hope you do, i want to hear from you!  send me a message on instagram, or post a photo to your stories and tag me so I can share your creations.  enjoy!

    So good. Thank you! This is my new favorite way to eat brussels. I omitted the oil (just used a spray of EVOO) and used chia seeds because that’s what i had. I love the lemon and garlic and onion combo. Easy peasy healthy.
