Slaw : Asian Inspired

Today on the way home my mom and I decided to stop by a local farm because it has started to warm up in NC and we thought that they would have some fresh spring produce. Which luckily they did! They had some beautiful vegetables (see pics on my insta!! down below). So when I went home I decided to make some Asian inspired slaw with the red cabbage I bought. DSC_0020DSC_0023DSC_0028DSC_0029RECIPE:

– 1 head of red cabbage chopped

– 2 carrots peeled and sliced (I just used the peeler)

– 2 T. fresh parsley (optional)

– lots of cilantro (to your liking)

– 1 chopped garlic clove

– juice of half a lemon

– 2 T. rice vinegar

– 3 T. soy sauce

– 1 T. grapeseed oil (or other flavorless oil)

– 1 T. peanut oil

– 1-2 T. sesame oil

– either chopped fresh or powdered ginger (to taste)

– salt and pepper

– red pepper flakes

– chile paste if you like a little spice

This slaw is better if you let sit for a few hours or over night and best served with cilantro, peanuts, and I love it with sliced avocado!
