Homemade coleslaw…

Homemade coleslaw…

Springtime means that we start to eat a little differently. We can take our meals in the sunshine outdoors. Slaws and salads replace stews and roasts.

This is simple coleslaw recipe that I recently showed on my YouTube vlog. The great thing about this coleslaw is that it’s so adaptable, using whatever you have to hand.

I often add red onion or spring onion, you can toss in some sesame seeds and toasted sunflower seeds. Add in a little chopped garlic or lemon juice if you prefer or even a dollop of dijon mustard. Adapt it to your taste.

This is my basic recipe…

Serves 4 as an accompaniment

Quarter head of red cabbage (White cabbage is fine too)

1 large carrot

1 stick of celery

Vegan mayonnaise

Agave syrup (or you can use honey or maple syrup – whatever you have in your cupboard)

Oatly crème fraîche

Cider vinegar

Fresh herbs – parsley, coriander

Sea salt


Finely chop the red cabbage, grate the carrot and slice the celery.

Place all three ingredients into a bowl.

Add spring onions, peppers or whatever else takes your fancy at this stage.

In a separate bowl add a couple of generous tablespoons of vegan mayo, a splash of agave syrup, a teaspoon of Oatly crème fraîche and a teaspoon of cider vinegar. Season with salt and pepper and mix well.

Add the dressing to the main ingredients and stir well. Sprinkle with fresh herbs or seeds.

Volià- coleslaw!

Ours never lasts beyond a meal, but it will keep happily in the fridge for a couple of days 🙂
