Ingredients for this chickpea coleslaw potatoes
I like to make it super simple. You’ll only need couple of vegetables for this meal.
–1 can of chickpeas. Very affordable and my favourite pantry staple. You can of course use dry chickpeas and cook by yourself. When I do that I ussualy cook huge batch of chickpeas and then freeze them into portions. They are so great when I need chickpeas on hand. For this recipe you are going to need to simply mash them with a fork or potato masher.
-Cabbage. I used about 1/4 of the large cabbage for this salad. Again it’s super cheap and one of my favourite winter veggies. I simply shred very thinly for this salad. You can use a mandoline or a vegetable peeler, or even sharp knife will do the work.
-Carrot. I love the carrots for its colour and so many great vitamins. It also gives a lovely sweet flavour to the slaw. For this recipe I simply grate it. You can chopp into small pieces, but I recommend to grate it!
-Parsley. Gives a fresh flavour and nice green colour to the salad. It’s one of my favourite herbs to use.
-Garlic. Just couple of cloves and omg what a difference. I love love garlic and even raw it’s an amazing addition for flavour to the salad.
-Dressing. The dressing is made from vegan mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, and some sald. That’s it so simple. You can swap half of the mayo to vegan plain yoghurt for a healthier version.
-Potatoes. Okay I stuffed the coleslaw to baked potatoes but you definitely don’t have to do this. You can eat the slaw in sandwiches or as a salad. It’s so good.
