There’s something special about cabbage. It’s just so much better than it seems like it should be. The deep purplish hue of red cabbage makes it great not only for adding a bit of color to your dishes, it also helps you get a well-rounded assortment of nutrients. And they’re just so cute!
No dish better showcases this lovely vegetable than coleslaw, and this Moroccan Mint Red Cabbage Slaw is the envy of all others. A hint of sweetness, a bit of zest, and a taste of spice, this dish really does have it all. A great lunchtime meal with nuts and hemp seeds for protein, as well as lemon, mint, cinnamon and a bit of curry powder to invigorate your senses. There’s a lot of goodness your body needs, and not much of anything it doesn’t!
The dressing is particularly nice. Cinnamon is an eccentric spice, and pairing it with maple syrup really accentuates the ambiguous character of this somehow sweet and savory bark. It would be interesting to see what other recipes this dressing could go with, though it’s hard to imagine it going better with anything than it does with this tasty Red Cabbage Slaw!
