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 🙂
For todays dinner i was craving a mix of everything so decided to make a sort of barbeque/pick and mix type of dinner with home made coleslaw, potato salad, sweet potato fries, roasted cauliflower which i marinated in a bbq sauce as well as some pickled onion, boiled asparagus and avocado! This was a super delicious mix, even if it may sound strange!
c.a 300g cabbage
c.a 300g (or about 4 large) carrots
1 cucumber (optional)
1 red apple (optional)
c.a 300g oat crème fraiche
c.a 250g alpro soya yoghurt
c.a 1-2tbsp mustard
a few drops of lemon juice or apple cider vineger
Salt and pepper to taste.
(Note, you can switch the oat crème fraiche and yoghurt to just vegan mayonnaise)
Also note, you can use pre chopped/store bought coleslaw mix if you prefer 🙂
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!
