Recipe: Raw Vegan Curried Broccoli Salad

I’m no vegan, but my mother certainly is! This is one of my favorite recipes from her Vegan restaurant. It is packed full of nutrient-dense superfoods and tastes delicious day after day. I say that because this recipe makes a massive batch which can be enjoyed for 3-4 days or would be a great addition to any potluck or dinner party. Enjoy!

Step 1: Prepare all of the following ingredients in a large glass bowl.

  • 24 Oz Broccoli Slaw (available at Trader Joe’s) OR 24 Oz finely chopped broccoli Florets
  • 1 Cup finely diced red onion
  • 3/4 Cup sunflower seeds or slivered almonds
  • 3/4-1 Cup jumbo black raisins (seedless)
  • 1 1/2-2 Cups shredded carrots (available at Trader Joes)

Step 2: Make the dressing by combining the following ingredients in a vitamin or food processor and blending until smooth.

  • 1 3/4 Cups soaked cashews, drained (I usually soak them in water for about an hour)
  • 5 Tbsp lemon juice (a little extra doesn’t hurt)
  • 2-3 Tbsp dijon mustard (I prefer Aioli Garlic Mustard Sauce from Trader Joes)
  • 2-4 Cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2-3 Tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 3 Tsp curry powder (Muchi curry, if possible)
  • 3/4 Tsp salt
  • 1/8 Tsp ground black pepper

Step 3: Start by adding 3/4 cup water to blender and add more as you need to create a creamy dressing. Do not exceed 1 1/3 cups.

Step 4: Mix dressing with veggies, refrigerate, and enjoy!
