Carrot Chickpea Sandwich with Brussels Sprouts Slaw

So this post has a surprisingly high word count despite it being a really simple meal from start to finish. The post is marked "vegan" because I was able to make the slaw vegan, but unfortunately the sandwich has a dollop of Greek yogurt.

The sandwich also has almond butter in it, which happens to be a staple in many of my recent recipes. I must have Googled "vegetarian recipes with almond butter" at some point and crowded the recipes close together. If you're allergic to nuts or nut butters, I promise I'll try to change it up in the coming weeks. Sadly, this post is not for you.

Agave Mustard Brussels Sprouts Slaw: Modified a Cookie + Kate recipe | Serves: 4 | Time: ~20 min



⅓ cup slivered #almonds

⅓ cup dried #cranberries

⅓ cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese (make it vegan!)

Agave mustard dressing

¼ cup olive oil

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 tbsp agave

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

1 garlic clove, minced

¼ teaspoon sea salt


Shred the sprouts: First, cut off the tough ends of the sprouts and any browning outer leaves. Then shred them in a food processor using the slicing blade, pressing the sprouts against the blade with the provided plastic pusher.

If you are using raw almonds, toast them over medium heat for three to four minutes, stirring frequently, until they are fragrant and turning golden on the edges.

Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, agave, mustard and garlic until emulsified. In a medium serving bowl, toss the shredded sprouts with the almonds, chopped dried fruit, Parmesan and dressing. Serve.
