Creamy Chunky Coleslaw… Vegan!

Creamy Chunky Coleslaw… Vegan!

Ooo it was sunny here today! Up to 18 degrees centigrade! 🙂 Bearing in mind that last night we were threatened with a frost, the temperature today was none too shabby! 🙂

So, sunny weather brings lighter food, salads and ice cream! I’m not sure how long this weather will stay but this chunky coleslaw is definitely a keeper!

Delicious creamy chunky coleslaw

Depending on what you have in stock, I have several variations of this dressing – they are all delicious and I’ve no idea why I didn’t think of them before! Anyway, a quick and simple throw together for a great side dish – or even as a main salad (I’m thinking with spiralised carrot, maybe courgetti and butternut squash noodles) or even as a dip for some crudités or sweet potato wedges yumyum!

Creamy Chunky Coleslaw (Vegan & Free-From)

  • Servings: 1-2

  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Gather

  • 2 carrots
  • a wedge of white cabbage
  • a handful of chard
  • 100ml natural yogurt (I used coconut)
  • 2-4 tablespoons milk (I used coconut)
  • 2 tablespoons houmous
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • —————————–
  • Optional extras:
  • pinch of cajun spice & a squeeze of lime juice
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • pinch of red chili flakes, 1/2 teaspoon of mixed herbs
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter (or peanut butter if you prefer)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (lightly toasted if you wish)

Prepare

  1. Chop your vegetables into strips and place in a bowl.
  2. Stir together the yogurt and milk (depending on the consistency of your yogurt).
  3. Add the houmous and tahini and mix well.
  4. Add extras as desired – Cajun spice with a squeeze of lime for a Mexican twist; salt and pepper for a more traditional coleslaw; chili flakes and herbs for a bit more flavour; almond butter for a creamier taste (its really good)! Mix it up and try a few! Almond butter, Cajun spice & lime is great! 😀
  5. Mix your dressing through your salad coating all of the vegetables.
  6. Sprinkle over a splash of sesame for added crunch and decoration!
  7. Enjoy!
