Chef ElizabethEveryone looks for shortcuts in the kitchen especially during the weeknights. I suggest you pick up a package of broccoli slaw or even prepared coleslaw and have it as a staple in your kitchen. It is affordable, the work is done, and it is delicious.

When I'm busy on the farm, I like to have prepared broccoli and or carrot slaw in my fridge. I find that I reach for it all the time to add color, freshness, nutrition and crunch to my dishes.

There are two main ways to use Broccoli Slaw:

  1. Make a Slaw: by that I mean dress and season it, and use it as you would any coleslaw – eat it as is or get creative and use it as a topping or filling.

  1. Use it Raw: by that I mean no dressing – use broccoli slaw as a mixed vegetable to add flavour, color and crunch and, yes, nutrients. You can chop it or process it and use it as a nutritious filler for your meat or fish loaves.

Chef Elizabeth, who would have thought that broccoli could be so versatile. I have used broccoli slaw in salads but not so much in anything else. I really need to expand my horizon a little, don't you think? ***** Have a great broccoli slaw day.
