Favorite vegan coleslaw?
My usual slaw is mayo-based but this time I need one suitable for a vegan friend. Any favorite recipes out there?
Oh, absolutely. You could do a North Carolina-style slaw.
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup malt vinegar
1 Tablespoon brown sugar (can sub 2-3 Splenda packets)
Cholula or Frank's Red Hot to taste (1-2 tsps.)
Salt and pepper to taste
Small head of cabbage julienned/chopped (1-2 lbs)
And, my SIL's addition---squeeze of fresh orange juice from a halved navel orange, and 1/2 cup finely chopped Vidalia onion. Mix the vinegars, Cholula, OJ and sugar, toss with the chopped cabbage and onion, add S&P to taste and let set.
Veganaise is a great vegan mayo, be sure to get the original with the blue cap:
I liked this one, i left out the peas because i thought that was weird in coleslaw and i toasted the walnuts and gave them a rough chop:
And this version is similar with an optional hot pepper:
not an exact answer to your question, but:
if you have a whole foods near you, they carry on the GROCERY shelves (i.e. it's shelf stable--NOT refrigerated) a product that they call "vegan mayo" it is their house brand, the 365 brand.
to my palate it tastes better than the refrigerated brands . better than veganaise, and better than the Earth-whatever brand of vegan mayo.
I love this Emeril salmon burger recipe...but the simple asian slaw that goes with it is really quite delicious and I frequently make it stand alone as well:
but really, if you want to use your usual recipe, Veganaise will really not be noticeably different in cole slaw, with all the other seasonings and all.
