To shred Brussels sprouts: Rinse them well and drain. Slice off the stem
end. Feed the whole sprouts into a food processor fitted with the
shredding attachment, or slice into thin ribbons using a sharp chef’s knife.
Brussels sprouts can be shredded up to 3 days ahead. Keep them in a
securely sealed plastic bag or container until ready to cook.
