Broccoli Slaw Dreams

Friday, June 18, 2010

Good Morning! I hope everyone has some great Friday plans.

Lately, I have been dreaming about broccoli slaw. Well, that’s at least the only dream I’ve had lately that hasn’t been completely weird. (Does anyone else dream about COMPLETELY random things??)

I keep buying broccoli slaw to add it to an omelet, because I used to do that all the time. However, every single time I have thought about eating one, it sounds like the worst idea ever. So instead, I decided I must create a new recipe involving it. Because I’m tired of throwing it away when it goes bad!

I decided a “taco salad” would be nice. I don’t know if it can be considered a taco salad when broccoli slaw is the base, but it was really tasty.

I started with seven ounces of broccoli slaw.

I added some green onions,1/4 cup red bell pepper and an ounce of avocado on top.

Then I mixed together black beans, Chobani, lemon juice and some cumin. I think the measurements were 1/2 cup, three ounces, 1/8 teaspoon and 1/8 teaspoon, respectively.

On the side I had an ounce of FSTG chips, multigrain flavor and cucumber. I also started out with a tablespoon of salsa for dipping, but I was loving it so much I had another tablespoon.

It wasn’t as filling as I thought it might be, so I think next time I’ll add more beans, more avocado and more bell pepper. Maybe have half as many chips to make up the difference. It tasted really great though!

On a less fun note, it has definitely been proved to me that not only does my body dislike flaxseed, but also chia seeds. Which really makes me sad because there are so many health benefits to both! And the chia seeds are so pretty in Angela’s vegan overnight oats.


I added some chia seeds to my green monster a couple of days ago, and my bowels are STILL unamused with me.

Strawberries, spinach, banana, chia seeds.

Cocoa powder, protein powder, peanut butter.

It was really tasty all blended together, but I don’t think I’ll be trying to eat any flaxseed or chia seeds anytime soon!

Have you ever tried broccoli slaw? If so, what do you add it to?

    Out of all the food in this blog...I like the chips! I just don't know about the broccoli slaw. emoticon

    Ok I stand corrected. I do like bell peppers, cucumbers and black beans, I guess its just the Broccoli slaw that is throwing me off.

    You "photodocument" your blog entries very nicely! Yes, I've tried broccoli slaw and really enjoyed it. I added some low-cal ranch dressing, some sunflower seeds, onion, pepper, and a little garlic powder (added to the dressing). It was quite tasty - would definitely have it again :) - Sandi emoticon

    I buy broccoli slaw occasionally. Usually just add dressing or mayo. I've had it with raisins, and apples and walnuts in a mayo-type/or bleu cheese dressing. I imagine you could put just about anything with it and it would be good.

    I have the same problem with flaxseed. Not fun.

    I have completely bizarre dreams as well; I've dreamt I was a man, which was quite strange. Like Barbara, I haven't heard of broccoli slaw, but your enthusiastic endorsement makes me want to try it. I'm from the South and used to a more traditional cole slaw. Now you've got me wondering if it can be made with greek yogurt and taste equally good. Nice post!

    Never heard of broccoli slaw. Your salad looks delicious, though.
