Quinoa Seaweed Broccoli Slaw

Serves 6.

Quinoa Seaweed Broccoli Slaw

Adding a subtle fresh-from-the-sea flavour, think of kombu as slaw’s secret weapon. British researchers showed that alginate—a unique fibre present in forms of sea kelp such as kombu—may reduce fat absorption in the body. Quinoa provides quality carbs, sweet-tart apples add a counterpoint to earthy veggies, and the orange dressing is here for a splash of brightness.

Tip

The slaw will also work with wakame. For added sweetness, you can include golden raisins or dried cherries.

Blade runner

Whenever 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.
