Seedy ‘Slaw

No surprises really, just a lightly dressed coleslaw garnished with a good handful of toasted sunflower seeds and a sprinkle of poppy seeds. It takes the dish to a whole new level….toasty, crunchy bits and a ‘nutty’ bite – it works perfectly as a side with the best spicy bean burgers and baked paprika fries.

Seedy ‘Slaw (dairy-free, can be egg-free, nut-free, soya-free, sesame-free, gluten-free, vegetarian and  can be vegan)

serves 4 as a side

  • 1/2 a white cabbage, finely sliced
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 2-3 tbsps mayonnaise (use egg-free if avoiding eggs)
  • 1 spring onion, finely sliced
  • small handful of parsley, finely chopped
  • handful of sunflower seeds, toasted
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • seasoning, to taste

– Combine the cabbage, carrot, spring onion, parsley and mayonnaise in a large bowl. Stir well.

– Taste and adjust seasoning to taste (I like lots of black pepper)

– Gently stir in the seeds.

– Eat soon after preparing.
