Broccoli Salad and Bamboo Steamer


Naturally, in order to make a Broccoli Salad, we need Broccoli


I decided to use my Bamboo Steamer to cook the vegetables 


As most of you know, steaming vegetables is a great 
way of ensuring they retain their nutrients when cooking


Traditionally you place the bamboo steamer in a large stir-fry wok containing a 
small amount of water, like I did here. Otherwise, a large pot will work just as well!


After steaming for approx. 5 minutes over the boiling water


Tossed into a glass salad bowl


After cooling for a few minutes, I topped with chopped Red Onion


And squeezed the juice from 1/2 Lemon, to add some zing


Bradner Farms Organic Chicken Breast


To satisfy my craving for chicken, I grilled and
 sliced 3oz Chicken Breast to go on top of the salad


With 1/3 cup cooked Edamame 


Vegan Broccoli Salad from Planet Organic Market


Well, what was left after I ate all the broccoli from it:)


Ingredients: Organic Broccoli, Vegenaise (Canola Oil, Filtered Water, Apple Cider Vinegar, Brown Rice Syrup, Soy Protein Sea Salt, Lemon Juice, Mustard Flour), Organic Thompson Raisins, Organic Yellow Bell Pepper, Organic Red Onion, Organic Walnuts, Texturized Vegetable Protein "Bac'un Bits" (Soy Flour and Caramel Colour), Soybean Oil, Salt, Natural Flavours), Organic Agave Syrup, Organic Lemon Juice, Sea Salt


Added into our salad


To finish, I added a sprinkle of Cayenne Pepper and a dash of Apple Cider Vinegar


By de-constructing the ingredients in the pre-made Vegan Broccoli Salad, 
this can easily be made at home. The main components: Texturized Veg
Protein (TVP), Raisins, Walnuts, Bell Peppers, Mayo and a little Sweetener
