Cabbage and Carrot Slaw with Almond Butter Vinaigrette #vegan #glutenfree #healthy

Ingredients

Scale

Almond Butter Vinaigrette

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Nature‚Äôs Intent Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • pinch of ground black pepper

Cabbage and Carrot Slaw

  • 1/2 medium head of red cabbage (about 3/4 to 1 pound)
  • 1/2 medium head of savoy cabbage (about 3/4 pound)
  • 2 large carrots (about 6 ounces)
  • 2 stalks of scallions, sliced
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 large avocado, cubed

Instructions

  1. Using a fork or whisk, mix together the ingredients for the vinaigrette in a bowl. It can take a little while for the almond butter to break apart. Just keep stirring, and it will eventually blend nicely into the vinaigrette. Set it aside.
  2. Slice the cabbage into 1 1/2-inch chunks. Slice each chunk into thin strips, about 1/8 to 1/4-inch wide. Peel the carrots and chop the carrots into matchstick pieces. Transfer the cabbage, carrots and scallions to a large mixing bowl. Quickly toss the vegetables.
  3. Toast the sunflower seeds on a pan over medium heat. The seeds should be ready in 2 to 3 minutes. Stir frequently to keep the seeds from burning. Transfer the seeds to the bowl with the vegetables.
  4. Add the cubed avocado to the bowl. Drizzle about 2/3 of the vinaigrette over the vegetables and toss everything together. Taste and adjust the seasoning to your liking, adding more vinaigrette or a pinch of salt, if necessary.
