Lyle's Famous Coleslaw!

Lyle is one of our most supportive shareholders this year. He comes to every distribution with a smile on his face, and new a story to tell us about the food he's making with his share. He's even done a few food demos at distribution as well. A few weeks he created some fabulous coleslaw recipes that we want to share with you!


As Lyle jokes, "When farming veggies you have to consider Coles Law."

"What is Coles Law?", "It is what we have been eating and sharing, it is made from the cabbage!"


Coleslaw can be made fast and super simple.  The basic method is only 4 ingredients, cabbage, mayonnaise, salt & pepper.  Most of the time a simple dish can taste amazing with fresh, organic, high quality ingredients. You want to have the attention on the main ingredient and if it tastes great by itself then obviously you are off to a good start! I started with a basic slaw and then created two vegan variations of the dish.


Traditional Coleslaw

1 head of green cabbage, chopped  (chop to smaller pieces for ease of serving into food demo cups)

1 grated carrot

1/2 green apple, coarsely grated

1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of buttermilk

1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of mayonnaise

2 tablespoons of hemp seeds

3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon of sunflower oil

Pepper, black or tellecherry

Himalayan pink salt

1 teaspoon sugar, blonde cane


Vegan Coleslaw

1 head of green cabbage, chopped 1 grated carrot 1/2 green apple, coarsely grated 3/4 cup of coconut yogurt (plain) 1/4 cup of vegan mayonnaise (soy free version: use one with a grapeseed oil base) 2 tablespoons of hemp seeds 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar Pepper, black or tellecherry Himalayan pink salt 1 teaspoon sugar, blonde cane (optional)

Vegan Hot Coleslaw

1/2 head of green cabbage, chopped  1/2 head of purple cabbage, chopped 1 grated carrot, coarsely grated 1/2 green apple, coarsely grated 3/4 cup of coconut yogurt (plain) 1/4 cup of vegan mayonnaise (soy free version: use one with a grapeseed oil base) 2 tablespoons of hemp seeds 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar 2 jalapenos, de-seeded and finely chopped Pepper, dried Aleppo red pepper, cayenne, black or tellecherry Himalayan pink salt 1 teaspoon sugar, blonde cane (optional) Just mix all of these ingredients together in a large bowl, and voila!


Cabbage is a great high fiber food with a lot of pre-biotics. With the vegan options you also get the probiotics of the yogurt, and help from the peppers with nutrient absorption in the gut. The apple cider vinegar adds the tang and helps the food breakdown in the stomach. So not only is it delicious, but it's good for you too!
