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!
