Super Slaw

So, a few weeks ago I was lucky enough to win the most amazing giveaway. The lovely Katherine Martinelli was giving away a Magimiz by Robot-Coupe food processor to celebrate her 2 year Blogoversary. I was the lucky winner of this giveaway and I have been BLOWN AWAY by this food processor. It has a whole bunch of different blades for slicing, julienning and pureeing. In addition, I was lucky enough to get the juicer and smoothie attachments as well.

So, I’ve been having a blast experimenting with my new toy. I’ve done some soups, some baking and some slicing but I decided it was time to try a slaw! Let me tell you, this thing makes a hell of a slaw! WOW. I used a few different blades to slice, chop and julienne and it was so much fun.

Anyway, I was inspired to make a delicious slaw because I’ve been slacking a bit in the veggie department lately. I wanted something that would be bursting with healthy cruciferous vegetables. So I combined kale, red cabbage and broccoli with my favorite veggies, Brussels sprouts.  And the combination was fabulous.

I decided that this slaw needed a special dressing, so I created a delicious roasted garlic and rosemary vinagrette. I think you could dress this with a number of things, but roasted garlic adds a ton of flavor and is a great compliment to the crunch of the veggies.
