Can barely muster up the energy to change the TV channel, let alone make yourself something to eat?
Enter one of the easiest ‘no brainer’ dishes ever.
I usually make a large batch and I’ve got lunch for the next few days. Winner with hubby’s taste buds too. For those interested, see this previous post regarding the nutritional benefits of cabbage, and especially its anti-aging properties.
Refreshingly light, this version skips the heavy processed mayo characteristic of traditional coleslaw. If you’re not a fan of garlic omit one clove.
Sesame Seed ‘Slaw
1 cup shredded purple cabbage
1 cup shredded green cabbage
1 grated carrot
handful diced onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp ground cumin
1 diced tomato
1 tsp sea salt
apple cider vinegar
Mix everything together in a large bowl. Let the flavours develop for at least 10 minutes. Adjust seasonings if necessary.
The colours in this dish make it appetizing to both the eyes and the tummy 🙂
To add more ‘bulk’ and turn this side dish into a complete meal, top with slices of avocado or throw in a mugful of sprouted chickpeas, buckwheat or quinoa for added protein.
Bahhh… Mondays. Where did the weekend go? Hope you survived yours in good nick.
