I saw this recipe for gluten free, vegan Apple-Broccoli Slaw and wanted to make it immediately. I was already home, wasn’t in the mood to head out to Trader Joe’s. Remembered that I had broccoli in the frig.
I cut the stems from the florettes and then put those stems in the food processor, and used the shredding blade to shred those babies. Voila!
Confession: I used to always throw out broccoli stems. Years and years worth, in the trash. Then I started chopping them into my salads and incorporating them in my stirfry dishes. But never in a million years had I considered shredding them. You know – like the bags of shredded broccoli you see at Trader Joe’s.
The recipe calls for 1 bag of broccoli slaw. I punted and kind of eye-balled it so that the amount I shredded would be the same as the amount in the bag. And I shredded an orange carrot too. And I added dried cranberries.
Delicious, easy, vegan, gluten free, great for a side dish, perfect for Thanksgiving or any holiday. Super quick to make. Thank you to Nutmeg Notebook for the original recipe for Apple-Broccoli Slaw.
