Easy Vegan Thai Peanut Coleslaw Salad

Jump to Recipe

This warm vegan Thai Peanut coleslaw has a rich and deep taste and is loaded with crunchy and creamy textures. But…it should probably come with a warning, because it’s irresistibly good and you will want to eat it all up. Made with shredded Cabbage, spring onions, garlic, fresh ginger, peanut butter and lots of spices, it’s so incredibly tasty.

The fresh ginger adds heat and spiciness and along with the garlic it has great immune system boosting properties. 

My Thai Peanut coleslaw is a fresh take on the traditional coleslaw. And it’s much much healthier. 

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely adore coleslaw. But I don’t enjoy the massive amounts of extra calories that you get in a traditional coleslaw. Coleslaw is one of those easy, tasty side dishes that even children like to eat…and this much lighter and healthier version is the stuff my dreams are made of. It’s still creamy and crunchy like a regular coleslaw, but add the extra spices and nutty flavours in this salad and you have a mouthwatering masterpiece (if I do say so myself). 

What’s great about this amazing vegan Thai Peanut Coleslaw:

  • Easy to make
  • Delicious and full of flavours
  • Healthy and low calorie
  • Can be served hot and cold
  • Great for lunch the next day
  • Loaded with immune system boosting ingredients like garlic and ginger
  • Gluten free
  • Soy free
  • Vegan

What can I use if I’m allergic to peanuts?

If you’re allergic to peanuts, you can replace the peanut butter with almond nutter or cashew butter and add a tablespoon of tahini to give it a more nutty flavour. It will change the taste a bit, but I promise you it will still be absolutely delicious.

And if you are lucky enough to get any leftovers (that doesn’t happen in my house) you can use them in a lunch wrap the next day or serve it as is in a salad bowl.
