  • 1 bunch broccoli cut into small, bite-sized florets (about 5 cups)
  • 2 carrots shredded (about 1/2 cup)
  • ¼ cup red onion diced
  • ¼ cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ avocado mashed
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds for serving


  • Using a steamer basket in a pot of shallow water or an electric steamer, steam the broccoli for about 5 minutes, until bright green and firm-crisp. If you don’t have a steamer basket, you can lightly steam the broccoli in covered in shallow pan with a little water. You can use raw broccoli, but it’s harder to digest raw broccoli, and it's not as tasty.
  • Rinse the broccoli in cold water.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the mayo, avocado, garlic powder, sea salt and black pepper
  • Place the carrots, broccoli and onion in a large bowl, add the dressing and mix well. Top with sesame seeds.
  • Refrigerate for a few hours or overnight, to allow the flavors to combine. Serve chilled.
