I’m back, as promised, with another fresh veggie recipe using the Veggie Bullet. If you missed the last one, you can check it out here. Earlier in the week, we saw what was possible with the spiraliser blade on this nifty new machine. Today, we explore its shredding and slicing capabilities.
I am a lover of coleslaw. It’s such an easy and delicious way to pack fresh, raw veggies into your diet. I’m a big fan of the three ingredient classic version, there’s a simple pleasure in mixing white cabbage and carrot with mayonnaise. I’m also partial to a vegan slaw, opting for oils to bring veggies together instead of eggs or dairy. However, the recipe I’m sharing with you today is probably the one I make the most – or some version of it, anyway. A good variety of veg mixed with yoghurt, lemon and fresh herbs. It’s unbeatable in terms of taste and texture, for me. It’s also easier to build up more interesting flavours that change with the season (aka depending on which local vegetables you can find knocking about that are of such wonderful quality you can’t bear even to cook them) and which veg/herb combination you spring for.
Ordinarily, slaw is a labour of love. There’s fine slicing, and grating, and brow mopping from all that food prep that’s taking far longer than it’ll take you to eat the stuff. While I’m an advocate of food prep as therapy for pretty much everything, it’s not always convenient. I was in awe, really, of how quickly I managed to make a batch of slaw using the bullet. From start to finish this was about 5 minutes, maximum.
Makes enough to serve about 8 as a BBQ side:
1/2 a red cabbage
2 large carrots
2 bulbs fennel
1 red onion
1 crunchy apple
4 heaped tbsps natural yoghurt
juice of half a lemon (or more, to taste)
big handful parsley, chopped
salt and pepper
- Process the vegetables. I recommend using the slicer side of the blade on the cabbage, fennel, onion and apple and the shredder side for the carrots – but slice/shred as you see fit!
- In a large bowl, mix with the yoghurt, lemon juice, parsley and salt and pepper.
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about my adventures with the Veggie Bullet – I’ve definitely had fun test driving it! If you want to look into getting one of your very own, you can find it on High Street TV for £149.99.
