Colourful crunch for the darker months
This tasty winter slaw brings together some beautiful and nutritious vegetables full of colour. It primarily supports the root and heart chakras through the balancing beetroot, carrot, red cabbage and celeriac. The flavoursome antioxidant and mineral-rich caraway seeds add depth and sweetness to the dish.
1 large beetroot
1 large carrot
1/4 red cabbage
1 tablespoon mustard
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon caraway seeds
2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Peel and grate the beetroot, carrot, and celeriac into a bowl (use a food processor if you have the relevant attachment). Finely slice the cabbage and add to the bowl. Mix the mustard, olive oil, and vinegar together with seasoning to form the dressing. Toss this into the slaw with the caraway seeds and serve with the sunflower seeds scattered on top.
