Anti-Inflammatory Turmeric Coleslaw
Turmeric has been given the title "Queen of the Spices" and I have to agree 100%. It's like the Beyonce of the spice world! It is super loaded with healthy nutrients and vitamins. It has antioxidant, antiviral, antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties...and I am only naming a few. The list of health benefits associated with this spice is mind-blowing! It helps with the prevention of cancer, relieves arthritis, boosts your immune system, great for weight management and improves digestion. This is also just a portion of the long list.
Regardless of your age and health status, adding turmeric to your daily routine IS A MUST! And this recipe is perfect for that. I make a big batch at the begging of the week and add it to my salads, use as an extra side dish at dinner, or put it on top of my tacos! The options are endless and as you read, so are the health benefits!!!
Serving size: 4
Prep time: 3 minutes, if using the handy Inspiralizer
Assembly Time: 5 Minutes
Total time: 8 Minutes
- 1 head of cabbage (green or purple)
- 1/2 cup of compliant mayo (Primal Kitchen Foods is my favorite store bought brand)
- 2 tsp. ground turmeric powder
- 3/4 cup of walnuts, chopped (you can really use any nut/seeds you prefer)
- Prep cabbage by carefully removing the core at the bottom. Do your best to get as much as you can while keeping the head of cabbage in-tacked.
- If using The Inspiralizer, attached the core side to the blade side. Then push ankor onto the opposite side, turn that handle and let it do the work. You can obviously use a chef knife and thinly slice your head of cabbage. Both methods end in slaw!
- Roughly chop your walnuts. If you are feeling extra fancy, roast your nuts first bu putting them in a dry skillet and let them get a little brown and toasty. This releases the flavor of the nut making them extra yummy.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients!
- You can serve it immediately but it always seems to taste better if you let it sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
