Peanut Slaw Bowl

View recipe

I know that we are fully into the New Year but I am still having a hard time believing it’s 2020 already. I wanted to share so many recipes before and during the holidays but as I just finished writing my second Sugar Detox in 10 Days Cookbook I found myself completely burnt out. I took some much needed time off and I am so excited to be back and ready to share weekly healthy recipes to keep you motivated to cook and eat healthy now and long past the New Year motivation wears off.

Today I want to share my Peanut Slaw Bowl Recipe as it is a nice transition from the holidays as it feels like healthy “comfort food”. Peanut sauce is so flavourful, and by adding a bit of curry you get really make your taste buds happy even with a ton of vegetables.

I wanted to share that this recipe is extremely versatile you can add in your favourite veggies, your favourite plant-based (or lean meat) protein sources and you can even add more starchy carbs like rice depending on your nutritional needs and goals. The sauce calls for curry but if you are not a fan simply omit the recipe is still really creamy and delicious. This recipe is a variation from my first cookbook where this recipe is uncooked and more like a crunchy salad slaw, for the winter months I prefer cooking my veggies and serving them warm with the peanut sauce.

Enjoy this dairy-free, plant-based super delicious lunch or dinner recipe.
