Paleo Spicy Asian Cole Slaw
I dig coleslaw. I dig asian flavors. I really dig cabbage. Cabbage is cheap. Do you agree with these statements? Good. Then try this yummy asian slaw. We had ours with some of nom nom paleo's delish damn fine chicken, second time i've made it in as many weeks.
As you may have noticed, I am really not much for measuring, especially in recipes like this. I'd rather eyeball everything and taste as I go. So this is not so much a recipe as it is guidelines. But spiceyness is such a personal thing anyways!
Paleo Spicy Asian Coleslaw
half a bag shredded carrots (about 1 1/2 cups)
small-med head of cabbage (or use red if you like)
1 small red onion, chopped/diced
3 tbsp EVOO
salt and pepper
3 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 tbsp (or more!) sriracha. There are paleo varieties out there, or you could make your own. Again, nomnompaleo.com to the rescue. I probably used more like 2 tbsp sriracha, but I really like spicy foods.
10 drops alcohol free liquid stevia- NuNaturals is best
In a small bowl, mix your wet ingredients. Taste it! Is it yum? Want it sweeter? Spicier? Tangier? Adjust accordingly. Now is the time to do it, before adding to your slaw. Pour over your chopped/shredded cabbage, onion, and carrots. Season, and mix well. Depending on the size of your cabbage you may need a bit more liquid. Let this sit in the fridge for a few hours so the flavors can come together. It is really good folks.
I know I haven't been awesome in the full disclosure department. January has been.... interesting. Honesty and truthiness aren't at the top of my list right now. Hope that's cool.
How has your January been? 2013 treating you right so far? Anyone doing any cleanses or detoxes worth sharing? I myself am dying to do one of those 3 day veggie juice cleanses, but the juice can be quite carby, and no protein, so I'm not sure it's a good idea. Thoughts?
Thanks GFGs. Much love!
