Tomatillo Guacamole with a Citrus Twist

  guacamole (640x480)Featuring Kumquats

Guacamole adds such versatility to a Raw Fusion Lifestyle:  You can use it as salad dressing or make an impromptu meal by slicing up veggies and dip; I also use guacamole as a base for nori wraps.  There are many variations to this Mexican flavorful dish.  Whenever I eat enchiladas, I prefer the green tomatillo sauce so decided to use them in lieu of red tomatoes, as I prize their slightly sour taste.

Here in Florida it’s kumquat season and I almost went to the annual Kumquat Festival about 45 minutes from Tampa in Dade City but decided not to subject Z to crowds of over 40,000 for a fruit that he has no interest in.   Since I have been buying organic ones at my local health food store I decided to try them chopped up on avocado toast and liked that tangy sweet/sour flavor so much that next I added them to guacamole.

Valentine Day Parfait!

 Raw Dessert — Vegan and Gluten-Free!

There’s something very magical about being able to make a delectable chocolate pudding using an ingredient that one would usually relate to more savory and salty dishes.  But the avocado — called the love apple for many centuries — will astound you by how rich and creamy it turns out.  It’s important to get all the lumps out so either use the tines of a fork, a potato masher or even your food processor.

Avocados have 20 essential nutrients including fiber, Vit-E the B-vitamins & folic acid    Cashews contain thiamine that works on memory, similar to gingko biloba. They are both considered brain-boosting foods!  Imagine having a decadent parfait and having it actually be good for your brain!
