Coleslaw is defined as a salad that consists of raw sliced cabbage combined with other veggies and mayonnaise. It originates from the Netherlands, but it is now used in many European countries. In this article, we will describe the process of preparing curried coleslaw and we will also highlight some of the most important things about curried coleslaw that will definitely make you want to prepare and enjoy it.
Health benefits of cabbage
What many people don’t know is that this is one of the healthiest vegetables in the world. To start with, cabbage is able to keep people safe from cancer. It contains phytochemicals known as isothiocyanates. These phytochemicals change the way estrogen is metabolized or broken down in the body. This in turn decreases the risk of hormone or estrogen related cancers such as breast and uterine cancer.
Cabbage contains high amounts of fiber which can stabilize the work of the digestive system and promote the work of the colon, adding protection from colon cancer.
Cabbage can also stabilize the levels of cholesterol. What’s even better is that cabbage is rich in beta-carotene and vitamin C which makes it an ideal food against premature aging. Use this delicious curried coleslaw to eat more cabbage. We should also mention that cabbage is an excellent energy booster because of the presence of vitamin B.
Finally, there is evidence that cabbage can be helpful in cases of Alzheimer’s disease, peptic ulcer treatments, gastrointestinal issues and cell detox. Cabbage juice, for example, is rich in l-glutamine, which helps heal the gastrointestinal lining.
How to make your own raisins
Making your own raisins is fun and makes these raisins even more delicious and healthier. First find fresh organic purple or green grapes. Next, wash them carefully, and put the grapes on a tray. Leave them outside in the sun. Keep in mind that the weather must be dry and warm. Leave them out for three days (or just wait until they get dry). Remove dried grapes from the stems that are left and put them in a well-sealed container. Keep them in a cool and dry place, best in the fridge.
How to make your own vegan mayonnaise
Take a dash of pepper, ¾ teaspoons of salt, 1 ½ tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice, ¾ cup of unsweetened hemp seed milk and ¾ cup of olive oil, put them in a food processor (leave the oil out) and process them well. You should get a smooth mixture. Carefully pour the oil into the processor while it is still on. Wait until the mayo gets thicker. Put the vegan mayonnaise in a sealable, rigid container. Keep in the fridge.
Spice it with some curry
As the name suggests this coleslaw is spiced up with some curry. This spice is well-known for its health benefits which obviously come from the different nutrients found in it. Curry has a very small amount of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats and no saturated fats. It also doesn’t contain any sodium or cholesterol. On the other hand, curry is rich in potassium, magnesium, vitamin B6, iron, calcium, vitamin A and vitamin C. Check more details on curry in our Potato and Onion Curry post.
