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. :)

    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!  
    • Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared household? Do you read ingredient labels?
    • Thank you so much!!!! I have a severe allergy, I can not even walk through a grocery store without getting a migraine. I have always used dreft but now I know for a fact that it is safe.
    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.
