SUPER SEED SLAW

SUPER SEED SLAW

I absolutely love this colourful seed-packed coleslaw.  It’s bright and beautiful with a variety of textures, plus it’s super easy to make and bursting with fresh flavour and health benefits.

I basically used every seed I had in my pantry for this salad, but feel free to use your choice of seeds and/or nuts.  They’re a great source of healthy fats and plant-based protein, and add a wonderful crunch to this family-friendly slaw.

SWEET POTATO DAL (DHAL)

My husband's family is East Indian, so I have been eating flavourful lentil-based stew or dhal for well over 2 decades.  Throw-in some sweet potato, and you have my kinda winter comfort food.  It may not look fancy, but it is super tasty and satisfying.

This dhal is made with red lentils, carrots, sweet potatoes, onion, ginger, turmeric, and other wonderful spices traditionally used in Indian cooking.

Smashed chickpea salad is a great plant-based alternative to egg or tuna salad.  It can be served on toast, sandwiches, crackers, tacos, salad, loaded sweet potatoes or even nachos!

This recipe gets a wonderful creaminess from avocado (in lieu of mayonnaise), along with loads of flavour from the addition of fresh herbs.  It was a huge hit with my meat-loving boys as well as my vegan taste-testers!  Better still, it’s super quick and easy to make and absolutely packed with fiber, healthy fats and protein!
