Total Time
30 Minutes
2 x pouches of Merchant Gourmet Korean Grains
¼ of a red cabbage
2 carrots
3 spring onions
1 red pepper
2 handfuls of bean sprouts
A sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds (white, black or both)
A handful of coriander leaves
For the dressing
A thumb sized piece of ginger, peeled
3 heaped tsp of gochujang
3 tsp of soy sauce or tamari
5 tsp of sesame oil
3 tsp of rice vinegar
2 heaped tsp of white miso
4 tsp of water
A squeeze of honey or agave
Step 1

Shred the cabbage as finely as possible and grate the carrot using a mandolin or grater. Slice the spring onions finely and chop the red pepper into thin matchsticks. Add all the veg to a large mixing bowl along with the bean sprouts and the grains.

Step 2

Grate the ginger into a bowl (a microplane is best for this) then add the other dressing ingredients, whisking together with a fork. Pour this on to the grain mixture and toss everything together so it’s well coated. Season if necessary.

Step 3

Pile the slaw onto a serving plate and sprinkle with sesame seeds and coriander.

TOP TIP: The key to this dish is the slicing of your vegetables - the finer the better! Perfect served alongside cauliflower steaks or bean burgers.
