Bet you never had broccoli-slaw like this!

You'll often see "convenience packs" in the grocery store, even in the produce section. Cauliflower and/or broccoli pre-cut, pre-washed, and ready to steam or boil, for example. While it is more expensive because you're paying for the additional processing, the vegetables themselves are just as healthy as the rest of the produce section.

One of the things we do buy in the pre-packaged bags of vegetables is "broccoli-slaw". Basically, it's shredded "hearts" (AKA stems) of broccoli, carrot, and red cabbage. If you added some mayonnaise it probably wouldn't be bad, but if you saute it up, it's pretty darn good, in my opinion.

  • 3 Tbsp oil (coconut, olive, or similar - you can also try a "chili oil" for a spicier dish)
  • 1 medium onion, skinned and sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 x 340g (12oz) bag of "broccoli slaw"
  • juice of one lemon or lime
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Slice the onion in half, remove the peel, and then slice into thin "half-rings".
  2. Heat the oil in a saute pan or wok.
  3. Saute the onion in the oil. Add the garlic after a couple of minutes.
  4. Add the bag of broccoli slaw and saute.
  5. When it's just about done, pour the citrus juice in and mix well.
  6. Season to taste.
