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. :)

    • Thank you! I have been considering lactose, though I'm reluctant to remove more things from her diet. She has not had the classic lactose intolerance symptoms of diarrhea, gas, or bloating, though I know she could still have trouble with it. I did not call the manufacturer about the medication but it is listed as safe on glutenfreedrugs.com. It was prescribed by a pediatric GI who specializes in celiac. The first question my daughter had for the doctor was whether the medication is gluten-free, and she told us it was.   
    • cyclinglady, I think Joseph is hoping to exclude celiac disease.   I feel for him, as I also had a hard time accepting my daughter's celiac.      I had this gene test done hoping our GI doctor made a terrible mistake.   But now I have triple prove that my daughter really does have it! I agree with you and others, that if biopsy confirmed celiac disease, you do have celiac disease. (But on occasion, doctors can be wrong, right?) However, I have a distant relative (not related by blood) who thought she had celiac diease for 10 years (no biopsy done), lived a strict gluten free life style, but still suffered from health issues, ended up in the mayo clinic, and found out that she did not have celiac.    She did not have the celiac gene.
    • Our doctor ordered the Prometheus Celiac Plus test for us.   It is some sort of in depth celiac blood test.   This test report showed  which celiac gene my daughter has.   I think you can ask your GI for a celiac blood test with EMA.   When I asked for the EMA test, we got this Celiac plus results back.   I believe Prometheus is the name of the lab. Our insurance paid for this test.   If your insurance won't pay for it, I know there is a lab in Colorado that offer this test for a few hundred bucks.   You have to google for it.   I forgot their name.
    • Why?  Some 35% of the population carries the genes that could develop into celiac disease.  But only a few actually develop it.  It is used to exclude celiac disease and not to diagnose it.  There are some outlier genes too that have been discovered recently, so the gene test is not perfect.   My daughter has tested negative on the antibodies test.  She will have to get retested in the future. But we will not get the gene test.  It may impact her ability to get life insurance or maybe even health!  Just something to consider.  
    • It will turn around, but it probably is going to take more time.  Yes, adhering to the gluten-free diet is critical,  but what doctors fail to tell you is that is can take time for antibodies to decrease.  For some it is a few weeks and for others months to years.   It sounds like you are doing everything right.  Remember, her gut is damaged and eating anything can hurt to digest.  You might consider taking her off dairy for a few weeks until you see improvement.  Then add back in starting with products with the least amount of lactose (e.g. yogurt). Many celiacs are temporarily lactose intolerant.  It might help with the nausea.   When I accidentally get exposed to gluten, I stick with soups and stews, even cooked fruit, like applesauce because it hurts to eat!   Are you sure the medication she is taking is gluten free?  Did you call and confirm with the manufacturer?  Did she have nausea befor she was diagnised?  The side effect of this medication is nausea.  Did the GI prescribe?   Hang in there!
