But how to prepare it? Let's see a full recipe.

Coleslaw easy vegan recipe: cabbage carrot salad

1. Round up the ingredients, prepare cabbage

Start by getting all the ingredients together. The cabbage is the first to prepare: get rid of the outer leaves, and any leaf that doesn't look nice, and cut it into half, then cut each half in two. Cut out the core, the hard white part, to have only leaves remaining.

2. Shred the cabbage in small pieces

Shred the cabbage in small pieces, either using a knife or a food processor. The smaller the pieces, the more difficult it will be to include them in other dishes. For example, if you plan on using it for your stir fry, you'll need long cuts. If you plan on including it in your burgers only, a very thin cut might be better from the get-go.

3. Peel and shred the carrots

Try then to make similar sized carrots cuts, using a vegetable peeler or again a food processor.

4. Add chopped parsley, mix

Add the chopped parsley on top of the cabbage-carrot combination, and mix them together a bit.

5. Prepare the sauce on the side

On the side, prepare the sauce by simply mixing all ingredients together in a bowl: add the mayonnaise (vegan one has less calories!), then the apple cider vinegar, top it with mustard, add a pinch of salt and pepper, mix it well, and taste. Add apple cider / mustard / pepper as necessary until it fits your taste.

6. Add the sauce to the vegetables

It is now time to add the sauce to the vegetables mix, and stir them together until obtaining your final product.

7. Ready to use Coleslaw

Once the sauce and vegetables have been correctly mixed together, the salad is ready! You can either eat it right away, or let it cool down in the fridge: after a few hours, vegetables will impregnate themselves with the sauce, releasing the full flavor.

8. Meal ready! Beyond baguette burger with Coleslaw side

You can finally use your Coleslaw for any meal you like, this great salad being amazing at so many things! For example, as a side of a French-style baguette vegan Beyond baguette burger, simply with a burger, a baguette, a few cornichons, and a splash of ketchup. Do not hesitate to be creative with what to eat with Coleslaw as it can be used in so many ways!
