Beetroot and Mint Coleslaw

Vibrant colours for vibrant health!

One of the challenges involved in getting a weekly veg box is figuring out tasty ways of enjoying vegetables you wouldnt usually choose to eat.  I'm no great fan of cabbage cooked, but I dont mind coleslaw.  I was out of carrots so thought I'd experiment with beetroot which has a similar texture and sweetness to carrot.  The mint in our garden has gone nuts so I thought adding a bit of that would give a nice counter to the sweetness. Mr Duncan said this was the best coleslaw I've made yet.

Beetroot is full of iron and folate

Cabbage is antioxident and also contains a phytonutrient called Di-Indole Methane that helps with metabolising estrogen effectively.

  • Cabbage
  • Beetroot
  • Mint
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Olive oil
Grate the beetroot and finely chop the cabbage and mint.  Toss together in apple cider vinegar and olive oil dressing.
