Winter veg coleslaw
I have become a big fan of Jamie Oliver's winter vegetable coleslaw.
The recipe is in Jamie at Home, and it is an exciting, zingy variation on coleslaw, with fennel, radishes, celeriac and red onion alongside the usual cabbage and carrot. The herbs pep it up nicely as well.
It is also healthier, with yoghurt instead of mayonnaise - you can even use fat-free yoghurt if you want. If you don't have the recipe, shred a mixture of the vegetables above (if you have a grater blade on your food processor, it saves time), and mix with yoghurt, lemon juice and mustard, plus any soft fresh herbs you can get hold of such as chives, mint, dill and parsley.
I do have to say that Jamie's recipe is rather heavy on the mustard - he suggests two tablespoons of an unspecified type. Two tablespoons of Dijon proved far too hot and a second version with a teaspoon of good old Colman's English was quite hot enough.
Don't forget to read the Fruits, Roots and Shoots blog in the EDP on Wednesdays.
