Easy Asian Broccoli Slaw Made with Coconut Milk


This is great as a side on a picnic or to top a veggie burger hot off the grill. It’s creamy with coconut milk and has a little kick from Sriracha. Mincing the broccoli will fool the pickiest eater into trying a few bites.

This dish comes together in minutes, so it’s perfect for an impromptu party. I don’t use many bagged veggies, but broccoli slaw is my exception. It’s not expensive and is great to throw into stir frys, soups, stews and salads. Plus broccoli gives a nutritional punch to any dish.

Be sure to try some on your veggie burger or veggie dog. Or bulk it up with extras for a hearty summertime salad.

Easy Asian Broccoli Slaw

  • 1 bag (12 ounce/340 g) bag of organic broccoli slaw
  • Dressing:
  • ¼ cup Roland Foods light coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha
  • 2 teaspoons grated ginger
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons soy sauce, to taste
  • Extras (for crunch and/or garnish):
  • toasted sesame seeds
  • minced peanuts
  • minced almonds
  • minced onion and bell pepper
  • sunflower seeds
  • minced cashews

Empty the bag of broccoli slaw into your food processor and process until minced. Scrape into a medium mixing bowl.

Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl, then pour it over the slaw and mix together.

You can use any of the extras as garnishes or to add more texture and crunch!

  1. I love this recipe! I want to add edamame and roll it up in shaved zucchini, like sushi, just for the squealing fun of it. :)
    Thank you!
