an easy, healthy lunch – egg and kale-slaw

egg and kale-slaw

A week of cooking inspired by what I’ve seen on Pinterest starts today. When I was planning this week’s menu I decided to only cook things I’ve pinned. Lunch today is a really easy but unusual egg and kale-slaw which will stay in the fridge and give me a high veggie, high protein lunch for the next couple of days. I think it will make a yummy sandwich filling too.

I played around with the recipe I found (as always) but love the combination of the slaw and eggs – something I’d never thought of before.

I did all the chopping while my eggs cooked (6 minutes in simmering water) so I’d say its a 10-15 minute recipe depending on your speed at chopping!
1 bunch of kale, shredded as finely as you can
half a head of red cabbage, shredded finely
6 hardboiled eggs, peeled and chopped
1 tablespoon of Dijon (I’m a mustard obsessive so maybe half this if you’re not)
half a cup of plain yoghurt (low fat is fine or you can use mayo)
Salt and Pepper
A handful of chopped Italian parsley (‘flat leaf’ in the UK)
4 finely chopped green onions (‘spring onions’)
Optional – 1 tablespoon of poppy seeds or sunflower seeds, a pinch of chili flakes
To make
1. Mix everything except the eggs together in a large bowl until everything is coated with the yoghurt and mustard
2. Taste for seasoning and adjust if needed
3. Fold through the chopped eggs
4. Serve as is or with toasted bread
5. Cover any leftovers, keep in the fridge then eat within 3-4 days
