Sautéed Broccoli Slaw + Shaved Brussels Sprouts


Have you picked up on the fact that I love/adore/am deeply loyal to Trader Joe’s?  🙂  One of the many reasons I love/adore/am deeply loyal is their pre-packaged fresh greens and vegetables.  Two examples of such products are their shaved brussels sprouts and their organic broccoli slaw.  If you follow this blog regularly, you’ll see that I use these bags o’ goodness in various creations.

  • 2 Tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 bag broccoli slaw, contents rinsed
  • 1 bag shaved brussels sprouts, contents rinsed


In large wok or saute pan, heat sesame oil on medium-high. Add broccoli-slaw first, along with 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

Stir with heat-proof spatula or wooden spoon (or flip contents of pan, if so-skilled!) to keep everything moving. The pieces are small enough that they will cook quickly.

After about 2 minutes, add bag of shaved brussels sprouts + 1/2 teaspoon of salt and a few grinds of freshly ground black pepper. Same as above — stir or flip to combine and keep moving.

After 2 minutes, turn heat off and add 1 Tablespoon sesame seeds (these can be raw or toasted). Taste veggies to see if they are seasoned & cooked to your liking.

Yield: approximately 8 servings. I cook a batch of this and use it for one of my servings of green veggies at a meal — I eat it under my “frittata” or alongside my protein at lunch or dinner.

If you do not have a Trader Joe’s (sniff sniff), you could use any bagged pre-cut broccoli slaw (or other type of kale-red cabbage slaw, etc.) from your local grocer. Or … gasp … cut the veg yourself. I like the convenience of pre-cut, store-bought.  Not as good, admittedly, as whole veggies you cut yourself — but probably more nutritious than frozen or canned.  A nice compromise!  🙂
