Don’t let the fancy name fool you, this is possibly the simplest dish to whip up in minutes and if you are not found of garlic, I suggest you leave the page instantly! The raw garlic is key in this recipe, it gives the vegetables a real kick. Basically you can use which ever vegetables you prefer, but make sure they are firm enough to be grated. I love the combination that I have used, the cabbage is my favourite. Beetroot is great too or rather yellow beets as they do not stain everything red. I also love the consistency of grated broccoli as it breaks down into tiny pieces. The raisins add a touch of sweetness and the chili gives it all a punch of spice. This appetizer is actually really healthy, a lot of raw vegetables and good creamy avocado paste, you would never believe how delicious it is. Even my meat-loving husband loves this combo!
