Cabbage: Salads, Slaws & Stirfries. Oh My!

  • 2 of 4


I used to think that cole slaw was simply a soppy mess you politely attempted to eat at picnics, but no more! I now enjoy this tasty version of cabbage salad on a regular basis. Below I’ve included a traditional, vegan and oh so yummy cole slaw along with two other raw vegan varieties to enjoy!

Cabbage Slaws:

Creamy Cole Slaw
yields 1 large bowl

1 head green cabbage, shredded
2 cups carrots, shredded
1/4 cup sweet onion, grated
3/4 cup celery, diced
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
5 Tbsp. sweetener (fructose)*
1/2 Tbsp. Bragg™ Liquid Aminos or tamari
1/4 tsp. dill weed
1/2 Tbsp. herb seasoning (page 3)
a squeeze of lemon juice
1 1/8 cups soft tofu

1. In a large bowl, mix together the cabbage, carrots, onion and celery.
2. Rinse and drain tofu. Mash and blend with remaining ingredients in a blender. Pour over the vegetables, stir well, and allow to marinate for an hour before serving.

* I often leave this ingredient out.

1. Shred the cabbage finely and set aside in a bowl.
2. Place remaining ingredients in a blender and blend thoroughly. Pour over shredded cabbage, mix well and allow to marinate.

Oh, and to add a bit of a snappy flavor to miso soup, cut bok choy or napa cabbage into large squares and steam them into the soup.

With oriental flavor ramen noodles, you can steam bok choy or napa cabbage, reconstitute dried shiitake mushrooms in the water for the noodles. Dump in noodles, cook through, throw in cabbage & seasoning packets. You can use Brussels Sprouts this way also. My son has loved this since he was big enough to eat it.

For sandwiches...
Take your favorite sandwich such as grilled cheese or hot dog... julienne cut cabbage, sprinkle over your open sandwich while browning the outside of grilled sandwich. Roast under broiler for that toasted taste in the cabbage and cheese. It's really good.
