Brussels sprout slaw for an easy side on Meatless Monday
It's the time of year when everyone is trying to eat healthier, and this dish, adapted from an online recipe, is a good option, with Brussels sprouts, olive oil, almonds and just a smidge of honey. We increased the amount of dressing amount and used vegan Parmesan instead of actual cheese; you can also substitute maple syrup or agave for the honey.
You will need:
1 pound Brussels sprouts
1/3 cup smoked almonds
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup vegan Parmesan
1/2 cup olive oil
4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons honey (or maple syrup or other substitute)
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 garlic cloves
Sea salt and cracked black pepper to taste
You can buy sprouts that have already been shredded, use a food processor to shred them to slaw consistency, or even try a knife.
1. Chop the almonds.
Chop the cranberries.
2. Measure the olive oil into a large bowl.
