MARCO’S FAVORITE RECIPES
This is one of my favorite recipes. It’s quite simple and very easy to make.
1 bunch kale
2 tablespoons cumin
pinch of pepper
1/4 cup nuts (pine nuts, walnuts, almonds, pecans)
1/2 green pepper, finely chopped
1/2 yellow pepper, finely chopped
1/2 orange pepper, finely chopped
1 Haas avocado
1 cup grape tomatoes
Take an entire bunch of organic kale. I like to mix in different Kale colors. Chop all of the kale finely and toss into a large mixing bowl. At this point, I like to knead the kale in order to soften it up while adding the juice of 2 organic lemons, cumin, ground black pepper, and a touch of Himalayan sea salt. I then add 1 whole organic Haas avocado, organic grape tomatoes, 1/4 cup organic, raw, chopped mixed nuts, and green, orange, and red peppers.
1 1/2 cups fava beans
1 clove garlic (optional)
4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 small orange jalapeño
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Boil fava beans and remove the skin. Toss them into a crushing bowl. If you don’t have one, you can throw them in a blender for a few seconds. Mix all ingredients together and you’re done! Enjoy hot or cold!! I love to toss a little Haas avocado over it with some heirloom tomatoes.
Your friends will swear it’s meat!
1 1/2 cups walnuts ground in the blender/food processor
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon coriander
2 teaspoons coconut aminos
pinch of cayenne pepper
Mix all the ingredients together and serve over romaine lettuce topped with fresh avocado, tomato, and olives.
1 bunch spinach
1 frozen banana
1 tablespoon almond butter
1 cup almond/rice milk
Blend all the ingredients together for an unbelievably delicious and nutritiously dense smoothie.
