Food as MedicineSM TipWant to make sure you have your recommended dose of vitamin C? A cup of broccoli has 200 percent of what you need.
Culinary Taste TipFlavonoids in the skin of the toasted almonds on top of the slaw are not only powerful antioxidants, they add a hearty, nutty crunch.
Culinary Technique TipOvercooking broccoli reduces its nutritional value. Steam or sauté broccoli for no longer than 5 minutes.
Ingredients4 cups packaged coleslaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrots), preferably organic
1 cup very small broccoli florets (3 ounces)
½ cup coarsely shredded broccoli stems* (2 ounces)
2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger root
¼ cup sliced unblanched almonds, toasted
PreparationCombine coleslaw mix, broccoli florets and stems in a medium bowl. Add soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil and ginger root; toss well. Top with almonds.
Substitutions4 cups shredded organic cabbage may replace the coleslaw mix and 1-1/2 cups packaged broccoli slaw may replace the broccoli florets and stems.
TipsUse a microplane or box grater to grate the broccoli stems coarsely for this vitamin packed coleslaw. The Cole slaw may be prepared and refrigerated up to one day before serving. For a spicy kick, stir in 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes along with the ginger root.

Comments on Ginger Sesame Asian Coleslaw
Trader Joe's has a fabulous broccoli/carrot slaw which can be used as a substitute for the green cabbage/carrot slaw. I use it in Wok dishes as well and throw it in at the last minute so not to overcook.
Simply prepared and lots of healthy nutrients.
Easy and simple yet very healthy recipe.
I always loved coleslaw. Ingredients are not hard to find and easily can be bought at all groceries and supermarkets.
Surely, I will add this to my healthy food lists and try doing it very soon.
Very good. I love vegetables but broccoli is not my favorite. Its a delicious way to eat what we all know is good for us.
