Broccoli cole slaw is available in plastic bags in the produce section; it contains shredded broccoli, red cabbage and carrots. In a 10 to 12 inch skillet, stir the curry powder over medium heat until it smells toasted, about 2 minutes. Add broccoli slaw, orange peel, orange juice and maple syrup. Boil over high heat for about 8 minutes, or until vegetables are cooked tender-crisp, stirring frequently. Stir cornstarch mixture and add to vegetables. Stir until boiling. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve hot over cooked rice. Garnish with chopped parsley or cilantro, if desired.
Can be prepared in advance, refrigerated and served cold as a salad.
