General Tips for Making Slaw:

  1. Use a food processor with the grating attachment to speed up the shredding process.
  2. You can also shred the veggies by hand with a cheese grater.
  3. You’ll need large mixing bowls and a good, sturdy kitchen spoon to mix the slaws.
  4. Make slaws ahead of time and let their flavors meld in the refrigerator for up to 3 days before serving.

Seeded Cabbage Slaw

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 cups carrots
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 2 cups green cabbage
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley

How to Make:
  1. Place all ingredients — except the seeds — into a large bowl.
  2. Stir to combine.
  3. Cook the seeds in a skillet on medium-low heat, turning them often until they’re fragrant and begin to brown. (They may begin to pop and sizzle, that’s OK.)
  4. As soon as the seeds are done, quickly add them to the slaw and stir well.
Expert Tips:
  1. Add chopped scallions or orange segments for extra flavor.
  2. Substitute celery seed for the cumin.
  3. Use toasted sesame oil instead of the olive oil.
