Mixed Raw Vegetables & Cashew Nuts

HEALTHY / VEGETABLES

INGREDIENTS

3 medium carrots

3 raw medium beetroots

1/4 of a small red cabbage

1/4 of a small white cabbage

1 small red pepper, deseeded and finely sliced

1/2 a medium red onion, finely sliced

1 small bunch of fresh mint, leaves roughly chopped

1 small bunch of fresh coriander, leaves only

25g cashew nuts, lightly toasted in a dry frying pan and roughly chopped

For the soy, chilli & ginger dressing:

100ml dark soy sauce

100g clear honey

juice of 4 large limes

1 tablespoon caster sugar

2 cloves of garlic, crushed & finely chopped

2cm piece of fresh root ginger, peeled & finely chopped

75g cashew nuts

METHOD

To make the dressing, put all the ingredients, apart from the cashew nuts, into a small pan. Bring to a gentle simmer, stirring constantly, and cook for 2 minutes, then remove from the heat and leave to cool.

Put the cashew nuts into a food processor, then add the cooled dressing and blitz until smooth. Keep to one side.

If you have a Japanese mandoline, use the attachment that cuts into curls to shred the carrots, otherwise use a flat mandolin with a medium attachment to shred them lengthways into spaghetti-like strips; or cut them into very fine, long julienne stripes with a sharp knife. Put the shredded carrots into a large bowl. Peel and shred the beetroots in the same way and add to the carrots.

Remove any damaged outer leaves from the cabbages, as well as the central core, and discard. Shred the cabbages very finely and add to the bowl, along with the pepper, red onion, mint, coriander leaves and toasted cashews, and toss lightly.

To serve, drizzle with the dressing, toss lightly and tumble on to a serving platter.
