Vegan MoFo ~ Fusion Challenge!
First up is the more traditional vinegar based type of Coleslaw. I took about a pound of red cabbage, carrots, and broccoli stalks that were pre-packaged and added the sauce which was made up of 1/3 C Tahini, 1/3 C Maple Syrup, 1/3 C Vegan Mayo, 1/3 C Apple Cider Vinegar, 1/3 C Ground Pumpkin Seeds
I made a 2nd slaw. Both of which I took to an omni pot luck. This 2nd one is a Curried Coleslaw. I used the same pre-packaged julienned/match-sticks and added a sauce made up of...1 C Golden Hunza Raisins, 1/4 C Pumpkin Seeds, 1/3 C Tahini, 1/4 C Lemon Juice, 2 T Maple Syrup, 1 T Curry Powder, 1/2 t Garlic Powder, 1 T Nutritional Yeast.
I enjoyed both. The more I ate the more I liked the curry one. It seems the more traditional type people at the potluck enjoyed the first one more - including my husband.
As you can see here there are 3 different looking "balls". One I rolled in Shredded Coconut, the one is left as-is, and the one in the back I rolled in Coconut Sugar.
Question of the day: would you classify my Curried Coleslaw as a FUSION dish?
