I plan to blog as I go, but just to whet your taste buds, you can plan to see:
- Vegetable Curry (tofu's debut in the Muñoz household)
- either homemade pizza (take 2), or homemade polenta (my current obsession)
Oh- I almost forgot. My Valentines' Day treat! Chris had class all night so I took the liberty to experiment since it was just me. I made chocolate mousse with avocado instead of cream. I was skeptical at first, but after evaluating several recipes, I was convinced that the texture would be phenomenal without too much sacrifice of flavor. I was right! The smooth, creaminess of the mousse was excellent. I plan to play around with the recipe a little more because I could detect a hint of avocado...and I'm not sure how that would fly around here.
Here's what I did, but feel free to play around until you get the flavor you like.
Chocolate Mousse (with Avocado)
(adapted from cleananddelicious.com)
1 large ripe avocado
5-6 Tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup agave or honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup vanilla almond milk (or any milk)
pinch of salt
whipped cream (optional)
Fresh berries (optional)
1. Cut avocado and scoop out flesh. In food processor (I used Magic Bullet), pulse until broken up and relatively smooth.
