This fennel cabbage slaw is a great side dish that’s fresh, light, and super yummy! I like to and encourage you to shave your cabbages and fennel by using a mandolin or food processor! This way, the cabbages stay fresh and hydrating versus the relatively dry and flavorless cabbage that comes in the kits at a grocery store!
Fennel and cabbages are great vegetables to eat and gently sweep away the build-up of toxins and excess waste throughout the body. Cabbages and fennel are neutral vegetables that pair well with starches or proteins! This slaw would be a great dish to make for a family who may have plant-based eaters as well as those who also eat animal protein.
Example Of A Starch:
Enjoy starches such as grains, sprouted bread, or starchy vegetables like sweet potatoes with this slaw.
Example Of A Protein:
Enjoy animal protein like turkey burgers or salmon with this cabbage and fennel slaw. Or plant-based proteins like nuts and seeds.
Since this slaw is mostly of raw vegetables, you can eat it as a lunchtime or evening “salad” or mix it with greens. Or eat it as a side with cooked foods like sweet potatoes.
