Holidays, Recipes & News

Hello there! Hope you’re enjoying the holiday season!

A few days back, I made lunch for me and my family. I made a huge salad for me which was divine, the dressing was a mistake and I was like oh no, I ruined i! But then I tried it and I was like wow, this is literally like Alfredo Sauce! Healthier, of course. I also made some filled avocados, which were a total success, they all disappeared and I made like 6 halves, you must try them, my sister which is sometimes harder to please with vegan food loved them too.

Gastrawnomica’s Filled Avocados

3 large avocados, halved
1 1/2 cups cubed jicama
1 cup tomatoes, finely chopped
1/2 cup fresh parsley
1/4 cup lime juice
1 tsp dried herbs
1 tsp nori flakes
*Balsamic vinegar in spray
**Season to your taste if you’re not used to eat salt-free.

Mix the filling ingredients in a bowl. Let it sit for a couple of minutes to absorb all the flavors. Take the avocado seed and prepare your halves. Now fill your avocados with the mixture and right before serving “spray” with some balsamic vinegar (if you don’t have this type of presentation add a 1/2 tbsp over the avocado).

*I’ve noticed that having the spray is amazing because you don’t add too much of it, my mom bought this for both olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and though I don’t use any of these two products, I see how when they use them, their intake is less than with a bottle.


Gastrawnomica’s Alfredo Salad

2-3 cups fresh spinach
2 cups cubed jicama
1 medium avocado
1/4 cup nori flakes
Pinch of dried oregano
Water as needed
*Almond powder/flour for topping

Prepare you salad by mixing jicama and spinach in a bowl. Blend the rest of the ingredients in a high-speed blender adding water as needed until you have a creamy consistency. Toss your salad with the dressing and top with almond powder.
*You can make the powder by grinding the raw almonds.

    I can relate to the big family thing. My mother is the oldest of twelve and I have around 60 cousins!
