Could I use garlic granules instead of fresh garlic

Reply

    HollyFriday 29th July 2022

    Hey Sam, yes in this recipe you could swap the fresh garlic for garlic granules. We have a fresh vs dried herb guide HERE which uses a ratio of 1 fresh clove to 1/2 tsp dried. Hope that helps!

Spring cabbage , is that just normal white cabbage ?

Reply

    HollyMonday 11th April 2022

    Hey Kirstie, spring cabbage is a type of white cabbage and has a slightly sweet flavour. It can sometimes be called pointed spring cabbage or sweetheart cabbage hope that helps!

Hi, can I leave out the fish sauce. Hate the smell of fish cheers

Reply

    HollyMonday 11th April 2022

    Hey Diane, you could leave the fish sauce out or swap for vegetarian fish sauce, a little extra soy sauce or Worcestershire sauce hope that helps!

Pam SuttonFriday 8th April 2022

Hi, this looks fab, wanted to try it for a while. Could you make a batch of the base ‘sauce’ and store that for longer? xx

Reply

    HollyMonday 11th April 2022

    Hey Pam, yes you could make the “sauce” ahead and store in an air-tight container which would keep much longer than the made up slaw, hope that helps!

Hi I don’t like sweetener. Can I just leave it out or replace is with sugar?

Reply

    HollyFriday 8th April 2022

    Hey Karen, yes you can swap the sweetener for sugar, hope that helps!

      Karen SinclairFriday 8th April 2022

      Thank you. It looks like a really good recipe and I will definitely try it

Mandy MarshallWednesday 6th April 2022

Could you use courgette instead of cucumber, as I don’t like cucumber. Thanks

Reply

    HollyFriday 8th April 2022

    Hey Mandy, you can eat raw courgette but it may be a little bitter and the skins a little tough. You could swap the cucumber for extra of the other vegetables or could add a diced pepper instead. Hope that helps!

Reply
