Garlicky Brussels Sprouts

This is from Vegetarian Times. It's very tasty and not as garlicky as one might think. If a whole pound of Brussels sprouts is too much for you to deal with, the recipe halves nicely. Since I just bought a huge bag of Brussels sprouts at Costco, expect more Brussels sprout recipes!

1 lb. Brussels sprouts, ends trimmed
2 Tbs. olive oil
12 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 Tbs. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
1 Tbs. apple cider vinegar

Place Brussels sprouts in bowl of food processor. Pulse 12 to 15 times, or until shredded. A few of my sprouts did not get shredded so I did them by hand so the rest wouldn't get pulverized.

Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add garlic, and cook until light brown. Increase heat to medium-high, and add shredded brussel sprouts, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Cook several minutes, or until browned, stirring often. Add 1-1/2 cups water, and cook several more minutes or until most of liquid is evaporated. DO NOT OVERCOOK. Leave crisp-tender. Stir in vinegar, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
