Winter ‘Slaw

Winter is the perfect time to ring the changes with coleslaw. All those cabbages are at their best and the wintery feel gives the perfect excuse to use different flavours.

Red cabbage, spiked with green coriander, white spring onions and crunchy sunflower seeds make a tasty crunchy side that is – in the words of Michel Roux Jr. – ‘pretty as a picture’ (incidentally, that scores one point in Masterchef bingo).

Winter Slaw (dairy-free, nut-free, sesame-free, gluten-free, can be egg-free if you use egg-free mayo, vegetarian and vegan)

Welcome. I'm a Cordon Bleu trained chef and mother with a passion for cooking vegetarian food. All recipes featured here are dairy, egg, and nut-free, thus 'accidentally' vegan, as my children are allergic to those. My aim is to recreate any dish, even what seems impossible, but free of the ingredients we can't have, and log my exploits here. Please browse what is now several hundred recipes. All the recipes posted (unless stated) are my own creations.
