This BBQ Coleslaw is a delish on your favourite vegan burger, as a side dish with your vegan BBQ or just on a sandwich. It goes with almost everything and you can make it as hot or mild as you would like it.
For digestive reasons I always prefer to cook any cabbages instead of using them raw. With this recipe the cabbages are pre-roasted, and this releases already those beautiful BBQ type of flavours. The texture still keeps a bit of crunchiness, which blends nicely with the addition of the raw sliced carrots in the coleslaw. The onions give it its strong flavour and juicy crunch. If you happen to have some pickled red onions leftover. Top the BBQ coleslaw with these, it will add a nice additional bit of acidity.
BBQ coleslaw better with home-made mayonnaise and BBQ sauce
For the BBQ sauce you can just hop to the shop. But making your own BBQ sauce is really easy , and so much healthier. For the most healthy option use a home made tomato puree instead of ketchup. Same story for the mayonnaise. I know there are lots of vegan mayonnaises on the market, but really making your own makes such an enormous difference! ;). Check out this delicious Mayonnaise recipe. Very handy as it has a long shelf-life, so you can make a big pot and just keep it in your fridge for a month (or even longer).
You can add some extra tang by adding more lemon or lime in the dressing. Make sure to add @haricoco1 to your Instagram posts using this BBQ coleslaw. So we can share our ideas. Enjoy!!
