  • Mandoline/ Julienne Tool


  • 500 g carrots peeled and julienned
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes


  • Using a mandoline, or a grater attachment julienne your carrots.
  • In a small saucepan, heat the oil and a crushed garlic clove. Once hot, let the garlic sizzle in the oil for 2 minutes on low heat - this will infuse your oil. Tip the hot oil over the julienned carrots and mix. Leave the garlic clove in. Let everything cool down for a few minutes.
  • Mix in the sugar, salt, pepper, vinegar, coriander and chilli. Cover and leave at room temperature for approx 6 hours to infuse. After that, store in the fridge.
  • Mix the slaw again and take out the garlic clove before serving. Sprinkle some sesame seeds on top if you like.
