Lime Cilantro Slaw

Inspired by a gorgeous head of local cabbage.

You can use you protein of choice with this--we did a simple baked tofu.  

First, press tofu.  Cut 1 block lengthwise, then layer on a plate: tea towel, tofu, tea towel, something heavy-ish. Allow it it sit on the counter for about 30 minutes, or even overnight in the refrigerator.  Dust both sides with this simple taco seasoning.  Bake at 350* for about 30 minutes.

 

Meanwhile, what you’ll need for the slaw:

1 head cabbage, any variety, shredded

1 cucumber, chopped

1 10-ounce bag edamame, thawed

2 medium carrots, shredded

4 green onions, chopped

 

For the dressing:

1 c olive oil

¾ c fresh cilantro

½ c agave syrup or raw honey

2 cloves garlic

Juice of 2 limes

½ tsp sea salt

¼ tsp black pepper

 

Toss slaw ingredients together.  Top with whisked dressing.  Serve with your protein of choice.
