Vegan coleslaw recipe

One of the things I miss as a vegan is being able to buy premade mixes such as potatosalad, beetroot salad and coleslaw. However I don’t have to miss out on them just because I can’t buy them premade, instead I can just make my own. And in all honesty, its better when you know what the food you are eating is made out of and you can add as much seasoning and flavour and different ingredients as you like! It also doesn’t take so long to make, so you can make big batches and store in the fridge for several days to last you a whole week 🙂



c.a 300g cabbage

c.a 300g (or about 4 large) carrots

1 cucumber

1 red apple

c.a 300g oat crème fraiche

c.a 250g alpro soya yoghurt

Salt and pepper to taste.

(Note, can add mustard or sugar for extra flavour/sweetness) (Also, you can switch the oat crème fraiche and yoghurt to just vegan mayonnaise)


How to:

Wash the vegetables/fruit, peel the carrot and get rid of the outer layers of the cabbage (incase of bacteria). Chop the cabbage into very thin slices (Can grate if easier). Grate the cucumber, carrots and apple. Mix together all the vegetables and apple in a large bowl, then add the oat crème fraiche and the yoghurt. Add the seasoning and mix together. Store in fridge until ready to eat!

  1. This has come at just the right time for me because I always make homemade coleslaw at Christmas and was wondering how to go about it. What a good idea to add apple to the coleslaw mix – never thought of that but I am definitely going to try it now I`ve seen this!
    Just one thing – I`m not too keen on soya yogurt but I`ve noticed they sell plain KO KO yogurt in the shop – would this be ok instead of the soya yogurt or would it just be best to use only mayonnaise or even just the Oatly crème fraiche on its own?
    Thanks for posting these recipes and ideas, you give me so much inspiration to try new things. Just this week I have increased my variety of vegetables and included new bean mixes, made my own bean burgers and had a go at falefals – and I feel great for doing so. I had got into a bit of a rut where variety was concerned so I knew I had to make changes – and I feel better as a result! Thankyou for all your advice!


    1. I amso glad to hear that you like the different recipes i post 🙂 They may not be so complicated, but thats the type of food and i am sure others appreciate the simplicity of certain meals 🙂 The KOKO yoghurt should work – as i guess it is thick in consistency, however it’s a coconut yoghurt right? And then it will add coconut flavour… so you could try it, but it won’t really be the same thing. Best to use mayonnaise or oat creme fraich then…. However, you can experiment with the ratio of the different “sauces” and see what you like best, whether you like it more thick or runny or what texture etc 🙂
