We all love a good breakfast casserole but feel too guilty afterwards! Here's a recipe that you may want to consider preparing on a Sunday or a rainy day. Using sprouted Ezekiel (Flax or Sprouted 7 Grain) spinach and avocado would add nutrients into this delicious dish and you'll be a bit less guilty.
This is a Vegan appetizer that would impressed anyone. The freshness of the coconut meat, the crispiness of the hearts of palm and the sweetness of the mango makes a perfect combination of flavors and textures.
Growing up in Peru, I learned the secrets of how to make a traditional Fish Ceviche with its white milky juice called "Leche de Tigre" witch means in English "Tiger's Milk". Leche de Tigre is the leftover flavorful juice in which the raw fish gets marinated and most people drink it afterwards.
In this Vegan recipe you will have almost the same effect after combining the lime juice, garlic, aji panca, ginger, salt and coconut milk. Even thought there's no fish to marinate, you still want to soak the coconut meat for a few minutes so it absorbs all the flavors.
To create a beautiful presentation when serving this dish. You can use a martini glass or a square dish. Garnish it with mint or cilantro and the sliced avocado.
The story goes that Falafel, despite its strong connection with Israel, actually originates from Egypt, and was originally made from Faba beans. Its roots can be traced right back to the Christian of Egypt who were forbidden from eating meat during certain holidays and came up with a falafel-like alternative. This traditional recipe is full of flavor and texture. Serve it with Tatziki sauce and use it as an appetizer or in Pita bread with our Asian slaw

I had the opportunity of serving this Smoothie on our last presentation at Macy's Dadeland Mall as part of their event "Breakfast at Macy's" (a remake of the movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's). Everyone was fascinated with its flavor but most importantly, with the fact that adding Spinach and Avocado to a breakfast smoothie can improve the lasting feel of being nourished and energized throughout the morning. This is a simple recipe to make and it takes away the decision making of what to have for breakfast when you are in a hurry. Throw everything into the blender and go! You'll be satisfied for hours!!!
