Without heirloom tomatoes and fresh spring greens, why ever would one want salad, right? Wrong! The veggies we often think of as sides to be drenched with cream or sauteed in a pan can also make delicious, nourishing bowls that are as healthy as they are delicious and ‘comfy’: very!

This bowl has sweet potato roasted in olive oil and salt, broccoli blanched until crisp-tender and bathed in ice water, finely shredded red cabbage, pulled together with an absolutely delicious creamy vegan almond and honey dressing. Yummy! Serve as a side dish for your family dinner or add some chicken or tofu for a main course. 

Note: I do recommend shredding the red cabbage with a mandolin. It’s a little extra work but the finer strands of cabbage make for a slightly more refined eating experience that is totally worth it.
