Mixed toasted seeds add extra crunch, flavour and nutrients to coleslaw. You needn’t stick to cabbage and carrots – try grating any other root veg you have in your box. This one’s good served with chicken wings and potato wedges.


  • 4 tbsp mixed seeds (e.g. sunflower, sesame, pumpkin, linseed)
  • 4 tbsp plain yoghu


Toast the mixed seeds in a dry frying pan for 1–2 minutes over a medium heat, until fragrant.

Mix the yoghurt, garlic, tahini and lemon juice in a large bowl.

Add the cabbage, carrot, onion and toasted seeds, season with salt and pepper and toss gently to combine.
