Shredded Brussels Sprouts n' Sausage

This is another basic dish created during our dairy-free, gluten-free "diet" this last week.

In case you weren't aware and don't like brussels sprouts (like many people), the only real way to eat them is to shred them! You can then sautee them with curry powder and maybe add some lemon juice? Maybe add some pecans? Or just onion and garlic? Whatever else you'd do with sauteed greens..... But I wanted to share this because it became an easy main dish. Again, measurements aren't precise--this is just an idea for those wanting to try shredded brussels sprouts.

10 brussels sprouts, shredded (I just sliced mine thinly)
2 T oil/butter (i used chicken fat)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 c onion, chopped
pinch of red pepper
sausage links, sliced (I used 2 big Italian Turkey sausages--from Costco)
3 c cooked Brown rice (I use the fool-proof baked method since the pot always overflows and don't have a rice cooker)

1. Sautee onion and garlic in butter/oil
2. add shredded cabbage and dash of red pepper; sautee a few more minutes
3. add sausage and a little water. Stir and place lid on pan--stirring every few minutes until all is cooked evenly.
4. Place over warm brown rice on your plate.
