Healthy Avocado Cole Slaw Recipe
What you’ll need:
•½ head of cabbage, finely shredded
•2 carrots, grated
•1 avocado, mashed (OR use 2 Tbsp of Earth Balance light mayo instead)
•2 celery ribs, chopped well
•4 green onions, thinly sliced
•2 Tbsp ground mustard
•one pack of Stevia
•1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar (or lime juice)
•1 tsp sea salt
•1/4 teaspoon pepper
•1 tsp garlic powder
•1 tsp paprika
•1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
•3 Tbsp water
•Fresh herbs (cilantro/parsley for garnish)
What you’ll do:
1 Shred/grate/chop up all the veggies by hand (or in a food processor).
2 Add the mashed avocado (this adds a really creamy texture and nutty flavor to it) and whisk in the rest of the ingredients. If you’d like a creamier and smoother texture, use your blender.
3 Toss in the seasonings and garnish with some fresh herbs. It’s great on top of salads, or eat as a side dish.
Avocados are really healthy, but usually pretty expensive. So try to stock up when they are on sale! Mash them with some lime juice to prevent discoloring and freeze them in little zip lock bags for later. I do it all the time and it works!
