This sensational recipe was born out of necessity. I was determined to create some satisfying recipes whilst on the famous FreeDiet™! I say famous because in the neighborhood {and actually all over our country} this diet has helped 1000’s of patients in the years that my husband has been practicing!

Okay, maybe it is for all practical purposes, on the verge and brink of fame but all those who have been transformed by it’s protocols will clearly state it worthy of acclaim!!  We often do virtual classes to coach people through this health journey.  If you would like to know more about the FreeDiet™ and success stories we have had with patients far and near click here.

If you have or are doing the FreeDiet™ you know the first phase removes many ingredients that are hard to digest and often wreck havoc on the body like gluten, dairy and eggs. However, we don’t let that stop us from eating delicious and satisfying food!

I was craving something a little fancier then a piece of fish and lemon but time was of the essence as dinner was a few hours away. Around here it seems I am always thinking of my next meal and I was searching the refrigerator and pantry for some ideas.

After creating this recipe,  I remembered eating a crab cake dinner out somewhere and it had this tasty slaw piled high that was such a great addition of flavors, I had to do the same!  Here is the link for the Ranch-O-Yum Dressing I added to the slaw.

  • ½ tsp. pink Himalayan sea salt
  • handful fresh chives
  • few dashes pepper
  • For Broccoli Slaw:
  • 1 bag slaw blend {I used Trader Joe’s 16 oz.}
  • ½ c. dairy-free ranch dressing
  • or other dressing
  • Ingredients for Dairy-Free Ranch:
  • ½ cup soaked cashews
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp. coconut manna
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • ½ tsp. dill
  • ⅛ tsp. garlic powder
  • few dash ground pepper
  • dash of paprika
  • Link in post for full directions

Instructions
  1. In a small bowl add the ground flax and tepid water. Set aside.
  2. Chop kale or spinach, chives, red pepper and add into a large bowl.
  3. In same large bowl add the rest of the ingredients for croquettes.
  4. Add flax and blend. Form small or medium patties.
  5. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 min. and then broil for 5 min. until golden.
  6. While the croquettes are baking make the diary-free ranch dressing.
  7. Add ½ cup dressing to bag of washed pre-cut slaw.
  8. When croquettes are done top them with 2-3 heaping tbsp.

Notes
The flax and water component to this recipe serves as the egg but you certainly could use 1 egg in it’s place. If you are using a store bought Ranch Dressing for the slaw please be conscience about the ingredients. Most store bought dressings use poor quality oils and ingredients. My homemade Ranch is simple and tastes delicious. You will have some slaw left over depending on the bag size your purchase 14-16 oz. and it tastes great alone or on chicken or fish. If you like spice add a little cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes to either the slaw or fish croquettes. Making smaller croquettes is great to serve as an appetizer too. Please use organic when you can.
