I have a recipe that I love for zucchini cakes and I'll bet broccoli slaw would work just as well as the zucchini. It's 1lb shredded zucchini, 1/2c egg beaters, 1/4c bread crumbs, chopped scallions, 1 clove minced garlic and about 1TBL parmesan cheese. Drop by spoonfuls into hot skillet with hot olive oil and cook 3-4 minutes per side.

I like to toss it with a little oj and add slivered almonds. I have also julliened some jicama in with it to add bulk. I have been meaning to add some mandarin oranges in with it but still havent had the chance. The recipe on the back of the bag for turkey meatballs with the slaw in it looks nice as well but have yet to try that either. I also just add half or a full cup to salads and thats nice with lowfat ranch.

I like to steam or par boil, portion 1/2 to 1 c portions and freeze.

When I'm in the mood for a quick soup, I heat up a cup or so of broth or stock, add left over chicken or a few frozen/thawed shrimp (thaw really quick!), add a little of my favorite salt free Thia seasoning mix and squeeze in a wedge of lime to raise the acid and balance out the spice.

This is also a great trick to do with cabbage (which takes too long to cook on its own - in my opinion!)

I steam it until it has an "al dente" texture and I cook spaghetti broken into pieces similar in length to the broccoli slaw. I combine the two and top with sauce. It is similar enough for me where I feel like I'm getting twice the amount of pasta for half the calories lol. If you are a carb lover like me, give it a try!

We make "Asian Chicken" with 2 chicken breasts, browned and simmered along with 2 packages of ramen noodles (use only 1 seasoning packet and use the reduced sodium version if you can find it). Once the noodles are cooked, add the broccoli slaw and cook to your liking (I like mine crisp, but warmed thru). Top with a bit of chopped green onion and a few sesame seeds. Makes enough for 2 to 3 large servings

I use it in place of salad mixed with some spicy chicken sausage slices and low fat spinach dressing. I like the crunch of the brocolli slaw and it makes a great regular slaw for your favorite dressing.

I really like broccoli slaw. It's so crunchy andyummy. I've used it a lot of the ways mentioned here.. My favorite is just to use it as is with a bit of low cal basamic dressing. Eat as regular slaw.Good way to fill up with few calories.

I mix it in with regular cabbage and low fat slaw dressing. Better than just the boring cabbage with better texture.

I cook the slaw with some onions until soft and then add an egg. Sometimes I'll add other stuff like spinach or shredded carrots. It's a great snack or even breakfast if I know I might not have time for a real lunch.

One of my new favorites!!

The only place I've found it so far is WalMart .. so I get REALLY excited every time I have to go for paper towels and cat / dog food :)

This is one of my go-to work lunches. I have two 5" whole wheat tortilla's on which I pile: 2 tbl. spoons of greek yogurt, 1.5 c. (approx) broc. slaw and probably .5 c. herdez salsa. These little fresh veggie "burrito's" are to die for. The greek yogurt and the salsa are divine together and the broc. slaw mis is so light and cripsy .. mmmm~mmm!!

I've also used it in place of pasta with a nice fresh marinara sauce. You can sautee or use right out of the bag. Both versions are tasty.

I like broccoli slaw and had usually done the reg. (sugary) recipe I have for cole slaw. Didn't think that recipe would be the best for watching calories so hadn't purchased slaw for quite sometime. Now all these great suggestions; egg rolls, peanut vinaigrette, etc. Thanks everyone. emoticon

I'm going to have to get some and start experimenting.

Saute some with the other vegetables when you make spaghetti sauce. If you don't use too much of it and let the sauce simmer long enough to let the vegetables break down, no one knows it's in there. I also add zucchini & shredded carrots.

You can also add it to meatloaf, or use it in an omelet.

Use it to crunch-up your regular tossed salad.
As a quick and easy stir-fry vegetable (Spay a pan with PAM, toss in the broccoli slaw with some finely shredded chicken. Add 1Tbsp Nama Shoyu or Soy sauce, and voila: Stir fried veggies w/chicken.)
Add to sandwich for extra crunch
Make Asian-stlye (mayo-free) coleslaw: Toss with 1Tbsp Nama Shoyu or Soy sauce, 1/2 Tbsp rice vinegar. Serve sprinkled with black sesame seeds and flaked almonds (optional.)

I buy the Peanut Vinaigrette dressing from Trader Joe's and add it to the slaw with a couple of chopped peanuts and it is an amazing salad and low cal as well. The vinaigrette has only 70 cals. per 2 T. and 4 grams of fat, so it is quite friendly on the waist.

So many things!!

It makes a great quick cole slaw (with green onions, water chestnuts, red peppers and Newmans own low fat sesame ginger dressing) for weeknights.

It also makes a really good, nearly no calorie soup if you throw it in a pot of chicken broth on the stove. Sometimes I'll add a couple of frozen mini chicken wontons (from costco) to make soup.

You can also use it in wraps. My favorite is chicken & peanut sauce in a wheat tortilla.

I made it for my husband like you do regular cole slaw (lots of mayo). Of course that would be high calorie, but you could stir fry it like you would regular broccoli.

Well, I guess I will be buying Broccoli Slaw the next time I shop. Great ideas here.

10/11/10 9:14 A

I bought a bag of it last week and did not like it raw. So here's what I did: In a little butter, I sauteed the slaw with four chopped leeks, an apple (peeled and chopped) and a potato (peeled and chopped). I then added a quart of Swanson vegetable broth. I grabbed a giant handful of spinach leaves and chopped those, and threw them in. I cooked all of this stuff together until everything was soft, then I used my immersion blender to puree it. Finally I added just enough light cream (which I use in my coffee) to change the color slightly, and stirred everything together. I seasoned it with fresh-ground nutmeg and a little salt. Broccoli Spinach Soup with Apples and Leeks! Only 133 kc per cup! And absolutely delicious!

I use it to make a variation on coleslaw. I use Greek yogurt instead of mayo. Tastes great. Or you could use it in sandwiches and stir-fries.

i use it sometimes as my salad, instead of lettuce or greens. or i have used it to just plain add to a green salad, since it is really just a bunch of sliced veggies. i have added a handful to a sandwich or cooked some up and added it to soup!

I am a big fan of broccoli slaw..I actually made dinner last night with a bag of broccoli slaw, a bag of tofu shirataki noodles, a scoop of meat, all cooked in a pan with some olive oil and soy sauce and spices -- it was like chinese food! I'm typically not a fan of chinese food because it used to make me feel sick as a child, but...this was good and healthy and the entire bowl (which was huuuge) was like 200 calories.

I also cook broccoli slaw and lean meat in garlic and tomato sauce and some laughing cow light swiss. It's almost like a tomato-y beef stroganoff with veggies. It's a typical lunch for me, and it's nicely textured -- and normally I hate carrots and red cabbage and broccoli.

As someone else said, has a lot of recipes using broccoli slaw. Definitely worth checking out!

You can steam it in the microwave with a little bit of water for like a minute and then chill it in the fridge for about half an hour. Then add a tablespoon of peanut sauce and mix it up. It's so delicious! Just make sure the peanut sauce you're using isn't loaded with calories and fat because some brands are. This is one of the recipes in the HG 1-2-3 book. Enjoy!

I like to add some nuts and some dried fruit to my broccoli slaw. I had spoke with my dietian and do thati had alittle of all my food groups in it so that if i wanted to i could eat it as a snack in the midafternoon if i need alittle snack. He just told me to watch like portion size and with whatever i mixed it with use like a low or FF verison to help keep the calories down

Yes HG is awesome! In the book 1-2-3 there is a whole chapter dedicated to broccoli slaw. The Hungry Girl books can be found almost anywhere...Target and Walmart are just a few.

8/27/10 3:47 P

Eggrolls :)

- brown up some lean ground pork (or cook a lean piece and then chop finely)
- sautee the slaw with some minced onion, garlic, shredded carrot and shredded cabbage (if you want) in a small amount of oil -- you can add a little water and 'steam' at the end to make it very tender.
- Add the pork, add a touch of soy sauce and ginger and sesame seeds.
- Roll up in an eggroll wrapper
- Spritz with Pam or cooking spray
- Bake in a hot oven until browned

I like it with FF or Light Honey Dijon salad dressing.

I add it to my eggbeater breakfast casseroles and also use the slaw on fish tacos..add some jalapeƱos to spicy it up

I love it just quick stir fry in butter or olive oil. You can use it on top of sliders. I made a pork loin pecan crusted slider and topped it with broccoli slaw, it was soooo good.

I love eating it on it's own with salad dressing as a salad, I add it to other salad's, stir fry's and even pasta with red sauce.

Use it as a slaw, adding raisins, sunflower seeds, a few bacon bits, and some diced red onion, to the mayo mixture. I use 1/2 plain yogurt, and 1/2 canola mayo, with a packet of purevia sweetener added to it.

I also have used it in my stir-frys. It's very tasty, and a whole lot quicker than prepping the veggies on your own. I have also used it mixed with some regular bagged Cole slaw mix, to make egg rolls and spring rolls. I also use the regular Cole slaw mix for stir-frys.

I LOVE broccoli slaw since I really dislike broccoli florets.
Add some fresh/canned/dried fruit; I like pineapple, mandarin orange slices, sliced purple grapes, raisins or chopped dates and garnished with slivered almonds or walnuts. Mix together with your favorite "slaw" dressing and chill before serving. Makes a great "dish to pass" too!

8/24/10 10:55 A

Hungry Girl likes to use it a lot, I would check out some recipes on her site!

Make slaw?

Mix up a little light mayo, some splenda and a tad of apple cider vinegar...add to brocc slaw. It will be at it its best after sitting overnight in the fridge.
I would also add some grated carrot and green onions.

You could also sautee it with some veggies for a hot side dish.
