Vegan Broccoli Slaw is a delicious side dish for your summertime sandwiches or burgers. It's perfect for picnics and cookouts, too. It takes only a few minutes to put together. Simply steam the broccoli, mix in the carrots and onions, and then fold in the dressing!
- 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.
