Sautéed Brussels Sprouts with Dried Cherries and Pistachios

brussels sprouts recipe

I’m not really a green bean person, so I usually turn to Brussels sprouts for my Thanksgiving veggie contribution. These shaved & sautéed Brussels sprouts are my absolute favorite, especially now that Trader Joe’s sells these pre-washed, pre-sliced little sprouts!

What used to be a labor intensive dish is now a snap. I can’t tell you how much time this product saves me! brussels sprouts recipe

This dish is ready in less than 10 minutes, and it’s salty & sweet flavor combination will please even those who normally don’t partake in the sprouts. My only real tip is to make a big batch!

Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Dried Cherries and Pistachios
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4 side servings
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 10-oz bag prepared shaved Brussels Sprouts
  • ¼ cup shelled, salted pistachios
  • ¼ cup dried cherries
  • Juice of ½ a small lemon
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  1. Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan over medium heat for 1-2 minutes.
  2. Add Brussels Sprouts and sauté for about 5 minutes, or until they've turned bright green but are still crisp-tender.
  3. Add the dried cherries and pistachios and sauté an additional minute.
  4. Squeeze lemon over the top and toss to coat.
  5. Serve hot.
Wait til the end - after you've tasted - to add the salt. The pistachio meats are very salty and you may not need any additional salt after tossing everything together.

    Yum! Can you make a pin of this? I don’t have a home computer, so creating pins is difficult from a phone. Love your website!!!!

    If you hover over the picture it should allow you to pin it…but I’ll pin it too just in case. Thanks, Kirty!
