Spicy Mushroom and Cabbage Slaw

Laura Bond, Serves 2-4

The strong flavours from this salad work well at a summer BBQ – plus the enzymes help you digest any meat you eat. The recipe is inspired by Australian chef Karen Martini.


  • 100 ml olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of tamari
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 green chilli
  • 2 spring onions
  • One bag of mushrooms (peeled and chopped)
  • Small knob of ginger
  • Half a head of cabbage (white or red)
  • Half a cup of grated carrot
  • Juice of one lime


Finely chop the cabbage, ginger, garlic, chilli and spring onion, then toss together in a large bowl with the carrot, mushrooms and basil leaves.

Pour over the olive oil, tamari and lime juice and serve.
