Mike’s Hot Slaw

By 21st August 2016 October 7th, 2019 No Comments

After selling my final restaurant boy and bird I have found myself home alot more for dinner.

Its a great thing, hanging out with my girls and building the farm up for the cookery school.

I found myself at home one night cooking dinner for the family in a hurry as we were late home.

So we had some pretty tasty pork sausages from our local butcher and some potatoes that I sliced, tossed lightly in oil spreading them out on an oven tray. Placing them in the oven on 180 degrees for 15 minutes till golden. I just love these potatoes.

Then I wanted a salad. But its too cold for a green leafy so I created a hot slaw!

This salad really is awesome.


  • 1/2 savoy cabbage, finely sliced
  •  carrot, grated
  • 1 red onion, finely sliced
  • 2 cups button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup cashew nuts, roasted and crushed
  • 1 chilli
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 tsp vegetable oil
  • 3 Tb Mayonnaise or dress with a light dressing for a lighter option

Heat a frypan and add the onions, cooking on a low heat before adding the mushrooms.
Continue to cook for another 3 minutes adding more vegetable oil if required.

Now add in the cabbage and carrots, continue to saute adding in the chilli and cashew nuts.

Tip slaw into a serving bowl, finishing with either mayonnaise or low fat dressing to serve.

Combining this with the pork sausages and crispy potatoes made for a wonderful, quick and tasty dinner!
