Black Bean Slaw with Red Cabbage

by Mar 20, 2018

Freshen up your taco night with this red cabbage and black bean slaw—a beautiful and delicious dose of vegetables and plant protein. Avocado Ranch is a great addition if you have the energy to make an additional dressing. The slaw keeps well for a few days, so leftovers are a bonus!


If you have Kate’s book, Love Read Food, make her “Colorful Weeknight Burrito Bowls”. Imagine it:  this slaw, cilantro-lime rice, toasted pepitas, guac, and salsa…!!!
