Kale Coleslaw – it’s a Vegan one and it’s YUM! Thermomixed too.

kale-coleslaw-webIt seems like every Monday at the moment I’m posting a really healthy recipe to compensate for the weekends excess, today is no different!  Well, T’is the season!  This is coleslaw is delicious on it’s own and it you do it’s completely vegan but we had it as a side with lamb cutlets so actually not so vegan for us after all but still really yummy.


I did it in the Thermomix so it took no time at all but if you don’t have one just chop away however you like.

Kale Coleslaw - Thermomix


  • 1 spring onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/4 cabbage, roughly chopped
  • 5 - 6 kale, leaves only (I used a mix of purple & green as I had both)
  • 1 carrot, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 red capsicum
  • handful of pumpkin seeds
  • For the dressing
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1tsp raw honey
  • 1 tsp Dijon Mustard


  1. Put spring onion & garlic clove into TM and chop Speed 5 / 3 seconds
  2. Add the cabbage, carrot & capsicum and chop Speed 6 / 3 seconds. Scrape sides
  3. Add kales leaves and chop Speed 3 8 - 10 seconds
  4. Add the ingredients for the dressing and mix through Speed 4 / Reverse / 6 seconds
  5. Put into a serving bowl and stir in the pumpkin seeds

Do you try to make up for over indulgent weekends on a Monday or are you good all the time or actually don’t care?

    Hmm, right now I’m hovering between making up for everything on Mondays and actually not caring! Hehe! This coleslaw looks great for one of the Mondays that I actually do put the effort in to eat right!! 🙂

    I made this last night but it seemed like there was too much in the bowl for it to all be chopped properly.

      I will update the recipe – I found the same the last time I made it and had to do it in 2 lots! So sorry about that I hope you enjoyed the flavours though.
