Summery coleslaw with yogurt mustard dressing and goat’s cream cheese

Posted in: Food, Soups & Salads · 22 June 2018

I know I said earlier (a few blogposts ago) that I could eat Vietnamese food all summer long. That was, however, only part of the truth, because salads are just as needed during the hot season, I believe. Today’s recipe is another one from my series for Florette Deutschland. I made a summery coleslaw with yogurt mustard dressing and goat’s cream cheese.

This vegan spinach parsley soup with roasted chickpeas is a great and fast way to add as many vitamins and nutrients as possible to your soup bowl. Get the recipe below!
