Easy Vegan Chipotle Mushroom Salad


This is my new favourite low carb salad!


It’s very quick to prepare and make the perfect take away salad for work. As its gluten free and full of healthy fats it’s a brain charger and helps your body to recover and stay focused. Spinach is full of iron, calcium and magnesium and mushrooms are very low in calories and high in fiber and protein which makes them the best lunch option!


This amazing salad is easy, vegan, gluten free, low carb and super delicious!

Let’s go cooking!

Tip:

Fresh baby spinach is a great choice for a take away work lunch as its staying fresh for a longer time even when tossed in salad dressing. Rocca salad is even stronger and makes a great option as well and gives you options to prepare your own lunches at home to stay healthy during your work lunch. Having prepare meals is a great way to save some money as well and will release you from the headache to find a quick bite during your 30-60 min lunch break so you can dive into the second half of your working day fully relaxed and recharged!


Chipotle Mushroom cooking steps:





Heat up some olive oil and add the mushrooms




Once they released all their liquid fry them up with some extra oil and add the onions. Once these are starting to brown add the garlic till it turns gold brown as well




Reduce the heat and toss everything in the chipotle sauce




Extra Tip:
The chipotle sauce is the only high carb product in this salad, so when buying the sauce check the ingredients to make sure its vegan and to choose the one with the lowest carb content. Adding 1 tbsp. is more than enough to get a great and exciting smoky taste to your dish but you can always reduce it to ½ tbsp. You can also use bbq sauce as alternative. Check in your local organic store for more healthy options.
