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. :)

    • So I've been glutened....
      That sounds like a plan JMG.  If things aren't working then make a change, hopefully a positive change.  It seems to me we have more noticeable symptoms sometimes after being gluten-free a while.  I made a mistake last night and ate some tuna canned in water.  It definitely wasn't boring.  I usually have more sense than to eat tuna canned in water but screwed up last night.  They canned  it in broth of some sort.  Ingredients say vegetable broth and soy.  Yuck, not good for me.  It sure tasted good though, just ouch.  I am not saying it had gluten in it, but it does have soy and some kind of unnamed veggie monsters.  So it could be soy, or carrots or some other disgusting vegetable that got me.   Not all celiacs have additional food intolerances beyond gluten, but some do.  My gut could testify to that.  Anyway, if you have bloating, cut out all carbs and sugar for starters.  And try peppermint tea or Altoids.  Over here we have something called Pepto Bismol that helps soothe gut pain and another neat thing called aspirin.  And gluten-free beer as needed.  
    • Gluten free apparently not helping entirely
      Jean, Maybe your boss can find you a job in the office for a while?  It's worth asking maybe? It's not easy being on constant travel with celiac disease but it can be done.  Your effort to find safe food is going to be harder than most but it is not impossible.  But if you can't manage it you should really think about getting a non-travel job.  Your boss may be willing to work with you on an office position, even if it's temporary.  That would give you some time to look for a local job and also eat a safer diet. It's really up to you to control your diet and make sure it is safe.  If you can't figure out how to  do that while traveling you owe it to yourself to figure a way out of the travel. Celiac disease isn't always fun and games.  Not always.   I hope you find a way to improve your circumstances.
    • Gluten Free baby food pouches?
      Anyone know of any baby food pouches that are gluten free?  We love to have them on the go for our kids (not just baby), but I have no idea which ones to get now!  We used to get Meijer brand and Plum.   Thanks!
    • gluten free, oat free, egg free breakfast ideas needed for 6 year old
      Thanks for everyone's suggestions!  I think I felt at a loss when we had to cut oats- we used to do cheerios and oatmeal regularly and now those are out.  She has a sensitivity to oats as well as wheat/barley/rye. 
    • So I've been glutened....
      The bloating has, if anything, got worse. It seems better when I'm lay down, when I stand it gets worse. Although the lymph swelling has gone down so maybe I'm through the worst. Hope so anyway... I never used to get a great deal of GI symptoms. Certainly not so serious as the other stuff. It's making me wonder if I just react differently now having been gluten-free for some time. I've noticed lot's of you saying that reactions seem to change over time. Of course its possible the other stuff was masking the GI things. I almost dont trust my memory of those times anymore because a whole chunk of my life seems to have been lived through a brain fog. Tomorrow I'm thinking of going away for a couple of days, maybe just taking some ultra simple food with me so I can try and settle my stomach by boring it into submission

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
