Avocado and Hearts of Palm Salad
Here’s what goes in it:
Hearts of Palm drained and roughly sliced
Fresh lime juice
McCormick garlic pepper
I like to season the avocado separately before I mix it in the salad. Cut the avocado in slices, add lime juice, salt and the McCormick garlic pepper.
This particular pepper grinder is my favorite seasoning for avocado!
I mix all of the ingredients and add the avocado at the end and give them a good toss.
If you eat cheese, this salad goes best with Gorgonzola! We were in the the Cayman Islands visiting my parents-in-law, when one day we decided to make a salad with whatever we find in the house. Jim(my father-in-law) and I came up with this salad(minus the radishes, plus the gorgonzola).
I’ve been making this salad for years!
Sweet potato quinoa burger with Avocado Aioli
For the Avocado aioli I used:
3 Tbs vegan mayo
1 clove garlic
I initially wanted to use jalapeno, but it wasn’t spicy at all, so i used few drops of habanero sauce. I used a hand blender to mix all until smooth and creamy.
For the burger:
1 cup of quinoa boiled – it rendered 2 cups cooked
1 big sweet potato cubed roasted in a 425F oven for 35 min
1 garlic head roasted in the oven together with the potato
4 oz of firm tofu crumbled
1 medium onion chopped sauteed in olive oil
1/2 cup quinoa flour
1 jalapeno chopped- this one wasn’t spicy either….I had 5 jalapenos that all tasted like green peppers… c’est la vie!
salt and pepper
I mixed everything together, formed into patties and cooked them on a grill pan.
Mike and I had them just like that with no bread.
