Servings: 6-8
Prep: 30 minutes
Total: 40 minutes


½ cup|70 grams walnut pieces
3 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 lemon, zested and juiced
1 ½ pounds|700 grams brussels sprouts, thinly shaved using a mandolin

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spread walnuts on a baking sheet and bake until lightly browned and fragrant, 8-10 minutes. Let cool slightly and transfer to the bowl of a food processor with nutritional yeast and lemon zest. Pulse just to combine and set aside.

2. Combine brussels sprouts, kale, avocados, and oranges in a large bowl. Whisk together reserved lemon juice (you should have 2-3 tablespoon), olive oil, maple syrup, salt and pepper to emulsify. Drizzle over salad, add walnut mixture, and toss to combine; serve immediately.
