Detox Coleslaw

by foodsmarty

Beet and Cabbage are very detoxifying. The glucosinolates in cabbage are converted into compounds that are anti-inflammatory and act as antioxidants. Not only does this serve to remove toxins and free radicals from your cells but also prevents cancer formation.

This salad is best made a day ahead of time to allow the flavors to meld.

1 large beet, grated

1 medium head cabbage, grated

1 head fennel, diced

2 T honey

1/2 c rice vinegar

1 t salt

1 t fennel seeds, crushed

1 t coriander seeds, crushed

Toss all ingredients and serve or store.

This recipe is a healthy version of cole slaw and is a great a side to grilled meats or roasts. For a vegetarian main dish put two cups of slaw on a plate and half a cup of chick peas on top. Drizzle with olive oil and enjoy. An addition of a hardboiled egg and perhaps some cucumber would be another great vegetarian salad. Use your imagination!
