Ultimate Vegan Winter Salad (Vegan, Gluten-free, Oil-free)

As the temperature continues to drop, I love making more heart-warming and wholesome savoury dishes. People often ask me how do I cook certain vegetables, as they are hard to “taste good”. Fennels and brussel sprouts are two popular ones among them. I personally enjoy them in whatever form 😆 Moreover, I think it would be a good idea to be whipping up a delicious and heartwarming winter salad with these two, together with one of my favorite ingredients of late – Turmeric. Turmeric is so nutritious to you that it has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. I start incorporating them into my diets in the past few months, including sweet or savoury dishes, and I felt more energising 😃
