CHUNKY GUACAMOLE

November 2, 2012

 Dear One,

If you are reading me for the first time, welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by. If you have been here before, thank you for visiting again.

Another great idea for a quick and satisfying lunch. Grab some avocado and some vegetables, add some lemon juice and smoked paprika, and you get a truly scrumptious chunky guacamole.

Serves 2 to 4 :

2 avocados, diced

1 tomato, diced (optional)

1/2 small cucumber, diced

1 lemon, freshly squeezed

1 tbsp raw vegan pesto (optional)

1 tbsp smoked paprika

big handful chives

Mix all ingredients. That’s it.

Enjoy rolled in a lettuce leaf or with raw vegetable sticks or raw crackers.

SPICY BAOBAB GUACAMOLE

October 14, 2012

 Dear One,

If you are reading me for the first time, welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by. If you have been here before, thank you for visiting again.

Guacamole really is a classic, with endless variations. This one is spicy, and the baobab fruit powder gives it a quick and a nutrition boost. Baobab is an exceptionally nutritious African superfood, with high levels of antioxidants, essential minerals including calcium, potassium, iron and magnesium, and vitamin C. The Seagreens is the secret ingredient that rounds off all the flavours beautifully and will have you licking your plate clean.

Serves 1 as lunch or 2 as a snack. You will need a knife, a blender, and 5 minutes.

1 avocado

1 tomato

1 tbsp olive oil

1/2 lemon, juiced

1 clove garlic

1 tsp baobab powder

1/4 tsp Seagreens (or other seaweed flakes)

1/2 tsp mexican chilli spice mix

pinch of crystal salt or sea salt

Blend all ingredients shortly to keep some chunks, or until smooth. Eat right away. Works a wonder with raw corn chips. Will keep in the fridge for a couple of days.

RAW KALE AND AVOCADO GUACAMOLE SALAD

August 28, 2012

Dear One,

If you are reading me for the first time, welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by. If you have been here before, thank you for visiting again.

KALE and AVOCADO are 2 of my favourite foods. Not only do they taste great, they both are amazingly nutritious. This is a salad in which the kale is wilted, then mixed with a guacamole dressing. Use 2 varieties of kale if possible, as the salad will look even prettier.

For 2 hungry people :

200g red kale

200g black kale (Cavalo Nero)

1/2 tsp crystal salt (I use pink Himalayan salt) or sea salt

1 lemon, juiced

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 avocado

1 red chilli (optional, halve for less heat)

1/2 tsp mexican chili spice mix (homemade or store-bought)

2 spring onions, chopped

4 garlic cloves, crushed

a dozen cherry tomatoes, sliced

1 tbsp hulled hemp seeds (optional)

1 tbsp cacao nibs (optional)

Wash and drain the kale, removing the hard stems. Using your hands, cut the kale into small bite-size pieces and put it into a bowl. Add the salt, the lemon juice and the olive oil. Massage the kale with your two hands until it wilts.

Blend the avocado, the chilli, the mexican chili spice mix and just enough water. You don’t necessarily need a high speed blender for this.

Add the avocado guacamole, the chopped spring onions, the crushed garlic, the sliced cherry tomatoes, the hemp seeds and the cacao nibs to the wilted kale. Massage again by hand.

Serve with an extra sprinkling of hemp seeds.

Keep smiling
