Broccoli Slaw

Broccoli Slaw Recipe

I don’t know about you but I prefer to buy my vegetables fresh, not frozen or even bagged – and definitely organic. There’s something about seeing all of that beautiful fresh produce right in front of your eyes! Broccoli is one of the staples in this house. We eat it many different  ways… but only the florets. So I’m left with the stalks. They are almost equally nutritious as the florets, so there is no need to throw these away. The amount of most B vitamins, minerals and fiber are very similar in the two parts on an ounce for ounce basis. Broccoli Slaw Broccoli Slaw I’m sure I’ve mentioned before how much I hate wasting food (and I’ll probably mention it a thousand more times in the future) so this broccoli slaw is one of the best ways to use up those leftover stalks and get an additional side dish for your next meal.  Typically I would put purple cabbage in my slaw but today was a bonus because I had some purple asparagus here so decided to use that instead!

Broccoli Slaw you need is a bowl, a good grater & a bit of elbow grease (maybe not a good recipe to make after working arms that day.. lol).
