My current cabbage and crunch obsession continues. The other day I stuffed it, wrapped it and steamed it recipe here. Today (and a few other days) I grated it and smothered it into a colourful slaw. I make a big batch to last 2-3 days and then add something new each day. This is the basic recipe. I add walnuts, toasted sunflower seeds, avocado, drizzle of chili cashew or tahini cream, sprinkle of nutritional yeast, toasted gluten-free croutons…. etc. Ideas abound!
I have served it this week with my Black Bean & Walnut Burgers & Homemade Vegan Bangers on a bed of salad greens; lambs lettuce/rocket/spinach mix
The basic coleslaw recipe
A mandolin works best but you can grate it too, or shred finely with a knife.
