Ingredients

  • 1 cup Brussels sprouts, trimmed
  • 4 cups mixed greens, such as spinach, radicchio, etc.
  • 1/2 cup arugula
  • 3/4 cups rice milk
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin purée
  • 1 teaspoon white balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons ground flax seeds
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1 tablespoon maca powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/6 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/6 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of sea salt

Directions

Steam the Brussels sprouts on the stovetop over medium heat until tender and bright green, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a large salad bowl. Add the mixed greens and arugula.

In a blender, combine the remaining ingredients and pulse until smooth. Pour the dressing onto the salad and gently toss to combine. Serve chilled. Enjoy.

Ginger Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Ginger Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chile peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
