When I think coleslaw, I think of good old classic St-Hubert (the Québec version of Swiss Chalet); creamy or vinegar ? Ah, the childhood memories… This was my first and most consistent encounter with cabbage, making me love it a bit more every time.

Now that I think of it with a dietitian’s perspective, I probably only liked it because of all the fat and salt that excited my taste buds. Don’t worry though; there are so many more ways to enhance flavours without overdoing it on the fat and salt!  This lentils and wild rice coleslaw is a good example of it; the lime juice and cilantro bring a lot of tart and freshness balanced with the sweet touch of honey and cranberries. What’s not to like?

Delicious and very practical for lunch, this one is also a success in a potluck. This is a great way to introduce wild rice into your eating habits; did you know it has a high content in fibres, protein and manganese? If you don’t have any at home, you can substitute it for regular rice, brown rice or quinoa, for example. Also, I like adding lentils in this recipe, since it is a quick way to add protein and fibres (and iron, and antioxidants, and so on…); all you need is a can opener, a strainer and you are good to go!

Convinced yet? Here is the recipe, let me know how you liked it!

Bon appétit!
