Apple, Fennel and Celeriac Slaw with Apple Cider Vinaigrette

I’m trying to equip you with some winter go-to recipes for those holiday parties or those detox days after said holiday parties.

This time of year is so festive and all get togethers tend to revolve around my favorite thing in the world: eating. Ha!

Your friends and family will love you for bringing a healthy option to the family dinner or holiday potluck. There’s never enough healthy options at those kinds of gatherings, so you will be very much appreciated.

First, I shared with you my brussels sprouts and pear noodle salad. Now, I’m bringing you this slaw.

Apple, Fennel and Celeriac Slaw with Apple Cider Vinaigrette

This slaw is especially wonderful because the longer it sits in the refrigerator, the better it gets – the celeriac, fennel and apple soften in the dressing and the flavors develop nicely.

This slaw can be served as a salad or a side dish – fold in some quinoa and add some toasted hazelnuts and you’ve got a fully satisfying salad!

It’s versatile and another one to bookmark or Pin for later!

Indeed I will buy your spiralizer as soon as you ship to europe! I 've been thinking on buying one for a long time, but since you've created yours I didn't want to buy a different brand just to end up with many problems with switching blades and incapable of dealing with harder veggies. I'd rather wait for your spiralizer. I've even tried to find friends of family that would travel to the USA or Canada, just to bring me one of your spiralizers, but without success... Well, I guess I just have to keep waiting :p This recipe looks great :)
Marcella Phelps says:
I had one of those Amazon spirilizers....then I bought yours...absolutely no comparison. Your design is easier to use, has more settings and is sharper. Just as important, my purchased supported you, a woman owned small business. The only thing I would say is that my spiralized nob letters are one blade off. So when you call for a blade "C" on my machine, I have to turn the blade to "D."
Ali Maffucci says:
I think you may not be aligning the Blade letters to the small triangular indicator on the side! If you look, there is a small triangular indicator - just line the Blade letter up with that! Moving forward, we will be making that triangular indicator green so it is more visible!

Michele Pryse says:
I made Apple, Fennel & Celeriac Slaw for dinner last night and everyone liked it. I took the leftovers for lunch today; it tasted even better after the celeriac softened a bit and the flavors married. We decided the fresh parsley was a bit assertive so next time I'll use a few mint leaves (or lemon balm or lemon verbena) along with the zest of the lemon used to make the vinaigrette to really highlight the sweet flavors. A good alternative to olive oil (which thickens when chilled) is flax seed oil, and I may even sprinkle a tablespoon of poppy seeds on top along with the toasted hazelnuts you suggested. Bottom line: recipe is a keeper. Thank you, Ali - I would not have thought to put apples, fennel, and celeriac together.
Michele says:
I make this recipe about once every 10 days, so I think I need to up my rating. I am in love with the textures of the spiralized ingredients, the mild anise flavor of fresh fennel and the sweetness of apple combined with the light dressing. I use flax seed oil, a bit of fresh mint, the zest of the lemon and a tablespoon of poppy seeds. I absolutely crave this salad now. I don't know what I'll do when celeriac and fennel are no longer in season! Yes, I do - I'll try more of your fantastic recipes :)

We're so so happy you enjoy this recipe, Michele! Thank you for your great comment.

ramen is the perfect meal for this season of life. it’s cozy, comforting, filling, and satisfying. 🙏🏼 needless to say, I’ve been eating tons of ramen bowls lately, and I’m extra excited to share this one with you, a take on Japanese miso ramen: Miso Noodles with Smoky Tempeh (using @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh) and Kale. 🥬 🍜 #LightlifePartner⁣

this is kind of like two recipes in one, because this smoky tempeh is good on everything – in sandwiches, on salads, in grain bowls - it’s my go-to flavor when I’m making tempeh (especially for those who aren’t as far along on the tempeh train as I am.) the other recipe is the simplest miso ramen with kale, which you’ll be making over and over again. 👏🏼 also, you can simply sub in @lightlifefoods’ Smoky Tempeh product here, to save time!⁣

you can find @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh at @acmemarkets or @wholefoodsmarket, but use their Store Locator on their site to find out where it’s sold near you. 🛒⁣

recipe below 👇🏼👇🏼⁣

Miso Ramen with Smoky Tempeh and Kale⁣
Serves: 4⁣

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil⁣
8-ounce package @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh, cubed⁣
¼ cup soy sauce, low sodium⁣
2 tablespoons maple syrup⁣
¼ teaspoon smoked paprika⁣
1 teaspoon liquid smoke⁣
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder⁣
2 garlic cloves, minced⁣
1-inch knob ginger, minced⁣
4 cups vegetable broth⁣
1 tablespoon miso paste⁣
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce⁣
4 cups finely chopped kale⁣
12 ounces ramen noodles⁣

Heat half the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the tempeh slices and cook for 5 minutes until browned, stirring frequently.⁣

While tempeh cooks, stir together ¼ cup of water, soy sauce, maple syrup, smoked paprika, liquid smoke, and garlic powder. Pour that over the cooked tempeh and stir to coat. Let cook another 5 minutes or until moisture is evaporated and tempeh is browned. Set aside on a parchment lined plate.⁣

Heat the remaining oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the broth and 2 cups of water and bring to a boil over high heat.

taco mondays are the new taco tuesdays! 🌮 but seriously... every day is a good day for a taco, right? 🥑⁣

the whole family loved these tonight, so I figured I'd share the recipe with you all! for so long, I over-thought fish tacos and now, I've got them down to a pretty easy science: slaw in an avocado sauce, a garnish, and pan seared cod. oh, and some quality corn tortillas, warmed in a skillet first (it makes such a difference!) 👇🏼⁣

cod fish tacos⁣
makes 9 tacos (3 servings) ⁣

ingredients ⁣
~ 1 ripe avocado⁣
~ 1 lime, juiced⁣
~ 1 small garlic clove, sliced⁣
~ 1 large handful cilantro⁣
~ salt and pepper⁣
~ 4 cups coleslaw mix ⁣
~ 9 corn tortillas ⁣
~ avocado oil ⁣
~ 3 boneless, skinless cod filets (about 3-ounces each) ⁣
~ 2/3 cup pineapple mango salsa (or similar) ⁣

in a food processor, place the avocado, lime, garlic, cilantro, 1/4 cup water, and season with salt and pepper and process until smooth. place the coleslaw in a large bowl and add the avocado crema and toss to coat. set aside.⁣

warm the tortillas in a large skillet and set aside, 3 on a plate. ⁣

add the oil to the skillet and once oil is hot, add the cod. cook for 5 minutes, flip, and cook another 5 minutes or until the cod flakes and is opaque. using a spatula, break the cod up into pieces. divide the cod onto the warmed tortillas. top with avocado slaw and mango salsa. serve.⁣
