GF Vegan Winter Brussels Sprouts Slaw With Mustard Orange Dressing

February 1, 2021
Winter makes it harder to incorporate raw veggies into our diet, but I found that a heap of this simple slaw alongside a spoonful of hummus and a piece of toasted bread does well with me most days.

This Brussels sprout slaw is packed with vitamins and minerals that are best during this season to prevent sickness and stay healthy and strong. The best part of the salad is that you can make it from any ingredient you have at home. If you don't like fennel, use kohlrabi or beetroot, instead of kale you can go with any other kind of lettuce or leafy greens, even spinach.
