Quinoa, Seaweed and Broccoli Slaw

Serves 6 | Ready in 30 minutes

Quinoa Seaweed Broccoli Slaw

Adding a subtle fresh-from-the-sea flavor, think of kombu as slaw’s secret weapon. British researchers have found that alginate—a unique fiber present in forms of sea kelp like kombu—may reduce fat absorption in the body. (FYI: This slaw will also work with wakame.) Quinoa provides quality carbs while sweet-tart apples add a counterpoint to earthy veggies, and the orange dressing is here for a splash of brightness. For added sweetness, you can include golden raisins or dried cherries. You know we’re easy like that.

Blade runner

Whenever you’re making slaws and other recipes calling for shredded vegetables and fruits, break out the food processor. The machine’s often overlooked shredding blade can take a huge chunk out of meal prep time.
