Always vegan, always whole.
We used to eat this side a lot more and back then I hated it. But when my mom remembered it recently and made it again, I fell in love. It's simple and extremely tasty. And when it's hot out, it's a perfect side for a nice cool meal. It's extremely nutritious and very tasty and the crunch of the broccoli adds a nice addition. Enjoy!
6 cups broccoli (cut into bite sized pieces)
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup red onion (finely chopped)
1 cup raw cashews (soaked in boiled water for about 10 minutes to soften)
1/3 cup water
1 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp shallot, chopped (optionally)
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1.) Blend together all of the sauce ingredients in a blender (like a Vitamix) until very smooth.
2.) Mix slaw and sauce together. Toss until well combined.
And that's it! A perfect side for any meal.
