At Bouldin Creek Cafe in Austin, Texas, Tarzan’s Big Salad is becoming a local legend. With the perfect fusion of raw and sautéed ingredients, this dish will leave you begging for more. In an exceptional display, you will find an array of ingredients including seasoned roasted portobello, stir-fried broccoli tossed in nutritional yeast, local tomatoes, carrots, avocado, sunflower sprouts and seeds, layered with chipotle-pecan pesto, ginger miso dressing, and organic mixed greens.

Nutritional yeast is high in protein, and is a significant source of B-complex vitamins, iron, fiber, and thiamine. Often used as a cheese substitute, the flavor is described as nutty, savory, cheesy, and creamy. It makes for an excellent superfood with super flavor to add to nearly any meal.

Instructions

Mince ginger and garlic, and heat in a pan with coconut oil, stirring in salt, pepper, portobello mushrooms and broccoli. Sauté on medium heat for five minutes, or until the mushrooms and broccoli are a bit soft.

Stir together more minced ginger and garlic with chopped pecans, sunflower seeds, pesto, miso, and chipotle salsa, and begin preparing your vegetable medley.

Shred carrots, and chop avocado, tomatoes, and sunflower sprouts, and stir into mixed greens. Add your dressing, and let the ingredients begin to marinate together.

Once mushrooms and broccoli are heated, layer with nutritional yeast, and mix into the greens and veggies that you have marinating.
