Mollete

This is inspired by a Mexican spicy dish. I first tasted the mollete when I was invited to lunch, however I had forgotten that my hosts were Mexicans and they are use to having a large lunch and a very small dinner. They served me so many and even though my throat was boiling from the salsa I still ate 3 of them they were delicious.

Ingredients:

1 avocado
1/2 tablespoon of onion (dice)
2 tablespoons of tomato
beans (fresh or can)
cheese (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
Bread (sliced)

Instructions:

Spread the beans on the bread and sprinkle cheese, put them in a toaster oven until the cheese melts and the bread is toasty brown. While is heating up in small bowl mix avocado tomato and onion. When the bread is done put the mix on top, then add salt and pepper. Disfrútalo.
And yes I omitted the salsa.

I like to accompany them with some radishes they are a great detoxifier and improves blood circulation. And don’t feel bad about putting extra avocado on your mollete this fruit has a lot of minerals like iron, magnesium, and copper. Also it’s a great antioxidant.

*Note: the original recipe has cilantro,  Mexican salsa on top (you can buy it in any store or make it) and does not require a toaster oven, they eat it with soft bread.

Philly Cheese Steak NO STEAK Wrap

This yummy wrap comes with a lot of nutritional values as you know white mushrooms have vitamin C, B6 and D. Not to mention the red tomato; recent studies have shown that tomato helps prevent stomach, lung, and prostate cancer because of the lycopene. And lucky us the oil helps it release and absorb better in our body.

Ingredients:

8 mushrooms
1 small tomato
1/4 small onion
A dash of salt
A dash of pepper (better if fresh)
1 1/2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
2 wheat-flour tortillas
Vegan Mozzarella cheese (optional)

Instructions:

Slice the mushrooms, tomato and onion. Then put a skillet in low fire and add EVOO (oil).
Add the mushrooms, tomato and onion. Cook until soft and light brown, add salt and pepper. Place it in a tortilla roll and enjoy.

Tip: don’t pile up the mushrooms, let them have their own space in the skillet. They will cook well and taste better.

Banana and Nut Muffins

I like muffins they are filling and you can make them with any kind of fruit. Bananas are very tasty, smell divine and have a lot of potassium. I just love to take a muffin for lunch.

Ingredients:

2 bananas
3 tablespoons of oil(vegetable)
1/2 a cup of plain yogurt *(optional)
1/3 cups of sugar
2 cups of flour
3 tablespoons of chopped walnuts

Instructions:

First of all turn your oven and put it in warm (150°F).
Mix everything in a large bowl except flour and nuts. Beat until it’s well blend and smooth. Then add the remaining ingredients and mix, it will look lumpy.
Pour the batter in muffin cups. Use a ice cream scoop to help you pour them evenly. When placing them in the oven turn it up to 350°F and bake until golden brown(15min).
Let them cool and enjoy.

Tip: To check if it’s cooked from the inside inserting a wooden toothpick, if it comes out clean, it’s cook.

* you CAN exchange the yogurt with just plain water and 1 teaspoon of olive oil.
