Broccoli Slaw- vegan, plant-based

Broccoli, such a healthy cruciferous vegetable but it is one of those vegetables that I love to dislike. I eat it (and enjoy it) steamed, raw with a dip, or mixed in a stir-fry.  However, when The VegInspired Chef proposes broccoli with a meal or as an ingredient, I instinctively wrinkle up my nose, for reasons of which I am not aware (perhaps a hidden memory of dining hall limp, overcooked broccoli?). I don’t know where my “dislike” stems from (pun intended), but it is there, and it is an obstacle this #eatmoreplants gal overcomes often, especially when we create such scrumptious, healthy recipes like this Broccoli Slaw- vegan, plant-based. Here we have a creamy slaw to eat alone or use as a delish topping for rice and spinach.
