Instant "mayonnaise Spread" From Avocado
0

5 posts in this topic

Wanting a "mayonnaise" type sandwich spread, but just can't find one without all the ingredients you're having to avoid ?  This is so easy, I wish I had thought of it, but you have to give credit to my spouse, who's been putting it on my homemade sandwich rolls when he makes lunch.  I finally thought to ask him to show me his secret.  ;)

 

How to Make Easy, Instant, Gluten Free "Mayonnaise" Spread from Avocado

 

Ingredients:

avocado, very ripe, whole-  Don't Peel !

olive oil, gluten free, choice

vinegar, gluten free  (may sub lemon or lime juice)

salt, sea,  (iodine free option) 

spice of choice, optional, such as paprika

 

Take a ripe avocado.  Slice it in half, top to bottom, around the pit, and pry out the seed.  You now have 2 pieces of half avocado, sitting there in its own little mixing bowl.  Take a little bit of oil of your choice, such as high quality extra virgin olive oil,  and put a half teaspoon or so in the little cavity where the avocado pit was.  Next, put in a sprinkle of pure, gluten free apple cider vinegar or lemon juice.  Sprinkle with the salt product of your choice.  Add a sprinkle of smoked paprika spice or other spice ingredient, if you feel like it.

 

Now, take a fork, and cradling the half avocado bowl in your hand, mash that sucker up inside the avocado skin, until it is well blended. 

 

You now have a very tasty green "mayonnaise spread" that is just the right amount for a sandwich, and it has no egg, no soy, no iodine, and no food processor to clean up afterwards.  This makes enough for 2 sandwiches if you use up both avocado halves, and don't save the one for tomorrow. :)

Being an avo grower, ive been using them to replace  oil and mayo for years.

 

just put some in a food processor with spices and a little almond or soy milk, or water or vinegar and make mayo or salad dressing or dips with a littel salsa added. so much you can do with it

Thanks Takala for the recipe as I am interested in trying it. I have never had an avocado but since I now have food restrictions of wheat corn soy, and have severe lactose intolerance I have become adventurous in trying new things.

I had to call my daughter who lives cross country to ask her how to even tell when a avocado is ripe as I have heard her mentioning liking them. She told me they are green when you buy them and you let them ripen up at home until they are soft and brown but not too brown or too soft. I told her the recipe and she suggested I try it on a turkey sandwich. Is she correct in what she told me? Any comments appreciated.

Yes, the avocado will be green and firm in the stores outside of avocado growing areas.  You have to let the thing ripen on the counter. Do not put them in the refrigerator, because then nothing will happen.  The skin will go from dark green to a darker shade of sort of green-mud-brown color and the avocado will then become softer to the touch when you squeeze it gently.   When you cut it open, it should still be bright green inside.  Frequently immature avocados, off the peak season, shipped a long way get sort of stubborn about wanting to be ripened, and quickly go from "not ripe" to having a lot of bad spots in them when you cut them open- you can cut them out and trim around them.  We are lucky here that this is an avocado growing state, and that the stores usually have avocados in the same pile in the bin that range from "no way, not yet" to "eat the same day you buy it" so you can pick up several to last the week. 

 

Turkey, swiss cheese, and avocado is the classic sandwich combination. :)

    • Does anyone have problems with popcorn? She has been eating a lot of popcorn because it has always been her favorite and it's gluten free. I have been encouraging it because it's full of fiber (she's constipated too), but maybe she's having too much?
    • Actually, gluten isn't hiding somewhere to be washed out.  It goes out of the digestive system in a few days, just like any other food.  What takes time to go down are the antibody levels.  It appears that we may actually continue to make them for a few weeks after we stop eating gluten.  
    • Okay, thanks! I had hoped she would at least have a little relief by now, but we will give it more time. She doesn't drink caffeine yet. She is 13 and although most of her friends drink coffee and caffeinated sodas, I have not allowed her to do that yet (I'm an overprotective Mom, I guess). I'll look into the healing touch therapy. Thanks!
    • 2 weeks isn't that long.  It can take months to years to fully heal.   IN 2 weeks she has eaten out 3 times?  You might want to stop eating out for a few months.  Just because ingredients are gluten-free, doesn't mean the kitchen practices keep them gluten-free.  For example - fries should be gluten-free - oil, potatoes, salt.  However, due to kitchen practices, they rarely are gluten-free.  They cook other items that are coated in gluteny batter in the same oil.  Some of that batter stays in the oil and gets on the fries.  Ever gotten an onion ring piece in your fries?  A pizza place may take a gluten-free crust but the pizza cheese is glutened by the cooks hands from previous gluten pizzas.  
    • It will take some time for your daughter to be free of the gluten she has ingested before the diagnosis.  I had to go gluten free in Oct. of 2015 and still am having some symptoms of being glutened, though they have lessened over the past year.  I look forward to the time I have symptoms only when being accidentally glutened.  It is frustrating when you don't think things are getting any better, but as the body heals it also needs to detox (meaning getting rid of the poison).  Your daughter has just started the road to recovery, but don't despair because you and your daughter will eventually start to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  It is great that you are there to help her and to be supportive to her during this time of transition for her.  It is important that she has the support of her family because this is a scary, nasty, weird, and frustrating time for her.  Even if she does not want to talk about it, always let her know you are there for her.  My family was an awesome support system and still is.  This is also a great site to ask questions and to bounce ideas off others who have been there, so welcome to the forum.   Someone directed me to the "Newbie" link on the homepage.  Something to look at. In reference to your question of missing something.  I know that sometimes for me stress, hormone fluctuation, certain chemicals in the air, and caffeine exacerbate the symptoms.  I am not sure how your daughter is, but it may be a good idea to cut out caffeine for a while to see if this helps.  For me, this was hard because I like my coffee at my office in the morning.  Instead, I drank decaf for a time.  I had to cut out dairy as well at the beginning and that did help.  I tend to still be sensitive to dairy even now when I get too much of it in my system, so now I limit how much dairy I eat.  When everything went haywire back in October, I started going to a nurse practitioner who specialized in Healing Touch therapy.  I am not saying it work for everyone because everyone is different.  However, she was able to keep my systems in sync with each other while my body was healing from the gluten.  I still go on a regular basis for maintenance now, but really helped in the beginning.  Something to look into and research about. The things that worked for me won't work for everybody, but I wanted to share with you what helped me throughout the whole process.  I will be praying for you and your daughter as you both journey time this together.  Let me know how it goes.
