Red Cabbage and Sprout Salad with Tamarind Dressing

Serves 8
by Tenina Holder

The beauty of making a quick salad with your own dressing is one of the features of using a Thermomix that I love the most. How easy is this? Within 1 minute (or so) you can be indulging in all this veggie goodness...and what a flavour punch to the jaw! Enjoy! This recipe originally appeared in The Convenient Vegetarian, which if you don’t already have, you should really go and get! HERE. You don’t need to be a vegetarian to love this book, paleo, simply add the meat, gluten free? Plenty of options, grain free? Same. Dairy free? Yep, got you covered, raw desserts your thing? Got those as well. It’s the book for all of you...Don’t wait...Happy Mixing...happy tummies.
