Quick Vegan KFC Coleslaw Recipe

Fun Fact: The coleslaw that I grew up with was never made at home. We got it from KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken Restaurants). Cringe-worthy but true. In this vegan version, I replicate the sweet and tangy flavour that I remember with Follow Your Heart (Earth Island) Vegenaise. You can also use your favourite store-bought or homemade vegan mayo.

I had been watching some of my old videos so look at what I liked and what I didn’t like in order to improve my videos going forward. In the process, I realized that I have some recipes on the videos that I didn’t post on this blog yet! The video below was from December. This recipe for KFC-style coleslaw was one of them.
