Sautéed Cole Slaw on Noodles


Packaged broccoli slaw—a mixture of shredded broccoli, carrots and red cabbage—is sold in the produce section of most markets. But if you can’t find it, use the equivalent amount of shredded cabbage alone, or shredded cabbage and shredded carrots. Serve the slaw on the noodles, or vary the presentation by tossing both slaw and noodles together. Consider something decadent for dessert such as a wedge of cheesecake.

  • ServingServings


  • 8 oz. wide noodles
  • 2 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 6 oz. seitan, cubed
  • 1/3 cup apple juice, or more as needed
  • 12 oz. broccoli slaw
  • 1/2 tsp. celery seeds
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Bring large pot of lightly salted water to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook noodles according to package directions, or until tender. Remove from heat, drain, rinse and drain again. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat vegetable oil in large skillet, and sauté onion until just golden, about 5 minutes. Add seitan to skillet, and sauté 2 to 3 minutes, or until just golden. Add apple juice and slaw mixture, and cook until slaw softens, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in celery seeds, salt and pepper. Remove from heat, and serve over noodles.
