If you’re looking for a carrot slaw that also packs protein, here you go:

Carrot Slaw No. 2

  • 2 c. shredded carrots
  • 1 c. drained chickpeas (a.k.a. garbanzo beans)
  • 1/4 c. vegan mayo
  • 1 t. celery seeds
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • optional: 1 tablespoon of white balsamic vinegar will add more spunk, if you like spunk
  1. Toss everything together in a large bowl and let sit in the fridge an hour or more to mingle.
  2. Really, that’s it, just one step.

Great with chopped green spring onion as a garnish.

Makes great filler for bento lunch boxes so long as you put it in its own compartment because the juices tend to gather. Meaning, wrap your dessert separately or you’ll be sooooorry.
