Are you sick of roasted root vegetables, stews, mashes, and bakes by now? Well here's a great recipe for raw winter roots!
We're not kidding, this is The Best Winter Veggie Coleslaw
From Jamie at Home: Cook Your Way to the Good Life by Jamie Oliver
2 carrots, peeled (different colors if you can find them
1 bulb of fennel, trimmed
Use at least 2 of the following (in italics)
1 light colored beet
1 turnip, peeled
1/2 a small celeriac, peeled (or 1/4 of the large)
14 ounces red and green cabbage, outer leaves removed
1/2 a red onion, peeled
1 shallot, peeled
a handful of fresh soft herbs, mint, fennel, dill, parsley, or chervil
1 cup plain yogurt
2 tbsp mustard
sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Shred the carrots, fennel, and your choice of the other four veggies on a mandolin, or use the julienne slicer in your food processor. Put the veggies into a mixing bowl. Slice the cabbage, onion, and shallot as finely as you can and add to the bowl.
In a separate bowl, mix half the lemon juice, a glug of extra virgin olive oil, the chopped herbs, yogurt, and mustard. Pour this dressing over the veggies and mix well to coat everything. Season to taste with salt and pepper and the rest of the lemon juice if you like.
Eat well and stay warm everyone!
