Dutch cumin coleslaw

(Recipe adapted from this version)

I had a craving for scallops last night (panfried with butter, parsley and garlic) but didn’t want to have any carbs, so I went on the hunt for a nice chunky salad to fill us up.

I thought I might be able to toast the cumin in the TMX, but after 15 mins at Varoma temperature nothing was happening so I popped my cumin seeds into a pan. Any suggestions, guys?

Also, the original recipe calls for Gruyere but it was pretty expensive at my local Coles, so I opted for Swiss instead which seemed fine.


1 tbsp cumin seeds

20g rice wine or white wine vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar)

60g extra virgin olive oil

2 tsp Dijon mustard

Generous pinch Murray River pink salt flakes (I had these at home, but if you don’t I’m sure regular sea salt or a bit of table salt will be fine)

Pinch freshly cracked black pepper

400g green cabbage in chunks

50-60g shaved Gruyere cheese (or Swiss!)

1 spring onion, sliced on the angle (I forgot to get this so mine didn’t have any)


– Toast cumin seeds in a pan until fragrant, then set aside.
– Add vinegar, EVOO, mustard, salt and pepper into your TMX bowl and blend for 5 secs/speed 10.
– Add cabbage and cumin seeds to the bowl and blend for 4 secs/speed 4.
– Serve with gruyere and spring onion. Totally easy!


If you’re after something a little less exotic, the 6-second coleslaw is pretty awesome too.

6 Second Coleslaw

Recipe from the Everyday Cooking for Every Family TMX cookbook)


200g cabbage, roughly cut

100g carrots, roughly cut

1 green apple (quartered, no need to peel or deseed)

1/4-1/2 small onion (I didn’t bother with this and didn’t feel that the coleslaw was lacking balance, but I think a bit of red onion would actually have been quite a nice addition).

S&P to taste

2 tablespoons of mayonnaise (I used salad cream which I tend to prefer).


  • Place everything into the TM bowl…

  • and chop for 2-3 seconds on speed 4. Scrape the sides and then chop for another 2-3 seconds. Check that it’s the desired consistency, chop further if necessary (mine was fine with the 6 second total).
