Vegan Coleslaw – Made From Scratch

I have been craving coleslaw the last couple of days. Last time I had it, which was probably about a year ago, I only had the store-bought typical, mayonnaise version. That tasted alright, but I was never a big fan of mayo (or buying pre-made salads, for that matter). Therefore, I was excited to make my own vegan version today – and can I just say, it was goooood…


  • 1/2 red cabbage
  • 3 carrots
  • 1 small onion
  • 3 tablespoons Vegan mayo (I used Vegenaise)
  • Whisk of Vinegar
  • Whisk Maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Brown sugar (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Raisins (optional)

So yes, adding maple syrup and brown sugar and raisins was probably a bit over the top, but I have a sweet tooth sometimes 😉 Feel free to leave out either the sugar or raisins, but I do recommend the maple syrup for a nice sweet touch.

To make:

  • Grate the carrots, thinly cut the cabbage. Put into a big bowl.

  • Note: Grating your own carrots can be painfully annoying, but it’s worth it for absolute freshness!

  • In a separate small bowl, whisk together the mayo, vinegar, maple syrup and sugar. Add salt and pepper as you like it.
  • Pour dressing over the ‘slaw. Now stir, stir, stir..
  • Add the raisins! Stir some more.
  • Let it chill in the fridge for a couple hours That’s what they say, but I had a my portion right away 😉

One thing: the ‘slaw tasted a bit onion-y for me. Make sure you don’t go overboard with the onion.
Apart from that: Nom nom nom…

I combined the recipe after looking at the coleslaw versions of FeedMeImCranky, HealthyHappyLife and VeganBits, so make sure to check these out as well!

What else do you like to throw in your ‘slaw? Raisins, nuts, crazyyy stuff? Tell me. 😀
