Macadamia Nut Curried Mayo with Cabbage Slaw


    Slaw is a traditional raw favourite. We’ve jazzed it up with a macadamia nut mayonnaise, giving it a Hawaiian flavour.



    1 raw (or coddled) farm-fresh egg
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) freshly squeezed lime juice
    2 tsp (10 mL) curry powder
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) yellow mustard seeds
    1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) cayenne
    1 cup (250 mL) unrefined macadamia nut oil
    Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


    2 cups (500 mL) thinly shredded Savoy cabbage
    2 cups (500 mL) thinly shredded red cabbage
    2 large carrots, peeled and shredded
    1/2 sweet onion, halved and very thinly sliced
    1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped parsley
    1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped raw macadamia nuts
    1/4 cup (60 mL) mixed sprouted beans*
    Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

    To make mayonnaise: combine egg, lime juice, curry powder, mustard seeds, and cayenne in blender. Whirl until blended. Continuing to whirl, gradually add oil drop by drop, then in a slow steady stream until mixture is creamy. Add generous pinches of salt and pepper to taste. Mayonnaise will keep up to 1 week in the refrigerator.

    Combine cabbages, carrots, onion, parsley, macadamia nuts, and sprouted beans in large bowl. Drizzle with a few tablespoons (approximately one-quarter) of macadamia nut mayonnaise, and gently toss to coat lightly. Add salt and pepper to taste.

    *Mixed sprouted beans can be found in the produce section of most grocery and natural health stores.

    Worried about raw egg?

    Substitute a coddled egg for the raw egg in this recipe. Coddling will warm the yolk and thicken its consistency.

    • Immerse egg in warm water to bring to room temperature and prevent cracking.
    • Place egg in small bowl or mug; pour boiling water over egg to cover. Let egg stand for exactly 1 minute.
    • Run cold water into bowl or mug.
    • Let egg stand for 10 minutes before using in recipe.

    Mussels with Tomato, Saffron, and Fennel

    B12-rich mussels are a very good and economical source of protein and iron. Steamed mussels are a classic way to enjoy seafood—and so is this rich, aromatic broth of tomato, fennel, and saffron. Be sure to allow saffron to fully infuse to get the full flavour benefit, and finish off the dish with the fragrant fennel fronds. Sustainability status Farmed mussels are considered highly sustainable due to their low impacts on the environment. They are easy to harvest, require no fertilizer or fresh water, and don’t need to be fed externally, as they get all their nutritional requirements from their marine environment. Mussel prep Selection: Look for mussels with shiny, tightly closed shells that smell of the sea. If shells are slightly open, give them a tap. Live mussels will close immediately. Storage: Keep mussels in the fridge in a shallow pan laid on top of ice. Keep them out of water and cover with a damp cloth. Ideally, consume on the day you buy them, but within two days. They need to breathe, so never keep them in a sealed plastic bag. Cleanup: In addition to being sustainable, farmed mussels tend to require less cleaning than wild mussels. Most of the fibrous “beards” that mussels use to grip solid surfaces will have been removed before sale. But if a few remain, they’re easily dispatched: grasp the beard with your thumb and forefinger and pull it toward the hinge of the mussel and give it a tug. Afterward, give mussels a quick rinse and scrub away any areas of mud or seaweed, which, with farmed mussels, will require minimal work.
