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.

    Beet Falafel Burgers with Dilly Tahini Sauce

    If a falafel and burger had a love child, this would be it. The result of this hybrid is a vibrantly coloured, complex-flavoured veggie burger you’ll flip over. You can also serve them between toasted hamburger buns with toppings such as sliced cucumber, sliced tomato, and arugula.  Holding it together Many plant-based burgers are crumbly and weak, risking a patty that ends up between the grill grates instead of intact on your plate. Keep your burgers together by forming patties no larger than 1 in (2.5 cm) thick, which ensures a nice, even crust on the outside and a thoroughly warmed-through centre, then chilling the patties before grilling. You can also consider using a burger mould, which gives you denser, equally sized patties that cook evenly. Be sure your grill grates are well greased.  Deep freeze You can freeze uncooked falafel burgers on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet or plate and then transfer frozen patties to an airtight container. When ready, just thaw and cook as instructed. Falafel cooking options To bake: Arrange falafel on parchment-lined baking sheet and brush lightly with oil; bake at 375 F (190 C) for 25 minutes, or until crispy on the outside and heated through. To pan fry: Heat large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add 1 Tbsp oil (15 mL) for each 2 burgers in the pan, swirl to coat pan and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until underside is browned. Then flip carefully and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more.
