This Healthy vegan coleslaw recipe works wonders for meal prep! I love that the veggies hold their texture throughout the week-even with the dressing mixed in. This recipe is truly a grab and go for the busy weekday rush!
The green and purple cabbage add important cruciferous vegetable nutrition, and colour, while the edamame packs a powerful protein punch!
Mix up the textures and flavour by adding in some grated carrot and spiralized zucchini!
The dressing is a nod to the classic! The creamy texture of a vegan mayo is infused with cider vinegar, date sugar, dill and fresh cracked pepper to add a little zing!

This healthy coleslaw is a powerhouse of nutrition! The veggies hold their form throughout the week so it’s easy to make ahead to grab and go!
- 3 cups shredded green cabbage
- 1 cup shredded purple cabbage
- 1 cup grated carrot
- 1 cup spiralized zucchini
- 1 cup thawed edamame, shelled
- 1/2 cup fresh dill or 1/4 cup dried
- 1 cup vegan mayonnaise I use Hellman’s Brand
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup date sugar or sub granulated
- 1 tsp salt
- fresh cracked black pepper to taste
Shred all of your cabbage into a large mixing bowl
Grate your carrot and pat dry with a kitchen towel to remove excess moisture. This is an important step so your cabbage does not become discolored.
Spiralize your zucchini and cut 2 inch pieces. Pat dry with a kitchen towel.
Add your carrots and zucchini to the cabbage. Toss to combine.
Measure out your frozen edamame into a strainer. Run it under hot water until thawed. Alternatively, you can thaw it the night before in the fridge. Add this to your veggie mix, and toss to combine.
In a separate mixing bowl, add your vegan mayonnaise, cider vinegar, date sugar, salt and fresh cracked pepper. Mix to a smooth consistency.
Chop your fresh dill (or measure out the dried) and add this to your dressing. Stir to combine.
Pour your dressing over your vegetable mixture and toss to combine.
Portion out 5 servings to be used throughout the week and place in the fridge.
Eat the rest now-you deserve it!!
If you are really running short on time, go ahead and pick up a ready to make coleslaw mix! Just measure out about 5 cups of the mix and add in your spiralized zucchini and thawed edamame. Could it get any easier?
