SHREDDED BROCCOLI AND CAULIFLOWER SALAD (w/ date paste!)
.
This recipe was so fun to make. It was a good reminder of summer freshness while easily pairing with warm comfort foods. Thanks to Trader Joe’s and their packaged broccoli slaw this recipe only took a few minutes to make. It’s also great for meal prep since the slaw does not get soggy easily. If you are interested in this recipe scroll down!
.
Recipe:
-1/2 package of broccoli slaw from Trader Joe’s
-1/2 cauliflower head finely chopped
-2 tbsp date paste
-1 tbsp tahini
-1/2 sliced avocado
-1 finely chopped date
-1/4 red onion chopped finely
.
Clearly you need a good knife for this recipe as you will need to finely chop many vegetables! This salad is soooo delicious and can be incorporated into a dish as a side slaw or even into a larger salad base as a topping that gives the salad an added sweetness and crunch. Give this slaw a try and send me a pic/ comment your review!

Pesto on pasta on pesto on more pasta … pesto pasta!

Lately I have not been cooking a lot, which shocked me as I thought that being home would make me cook more, but I guess not! I think that it’s more the school work I have that has been shifting my priority from cooking fun meals to studying … meh. BUT don’t worry! There are still so many fast and easy recipes that you can make if you are in the same situation. These recipes are not vegan (Ik I’m sorry) but they are vegetarian and relatively healthy! Scroll down for full recipe.

Same ingredients but substitute the arugula with roasted tomatoes!
