Feliz el cinco de mayo! Cinco de mayo is the Anniversary of the Battle of Puebla, a Mexican military victory over the French forces of Napoleon III in 1862.
To participate in the cultural celebration, try classic Mexican recipes with a twist. Each has been adapted for dietary restrictions:
Zesty Southwest Salsa is vegan, gluten-free, and nut-free... and just about el más rápido appetizer you can whip up. It calls for a can of black beans, can of corn, fresh tomato, lime, and onion.
Cheesy Lentil Tacos are perfect for the vegetarian or anyone trying to reduce their meat intake. Lentils don't require soaking, so these can be made in about 20 minutes and customized with cheese and veggies of your liking.
Jackfruit Enchiladas are also meatless and a good source of fiber. Jackfruit can be bought prepared in a can and just needs to be seasoned and rolled in a tortilla to make this recipe.
Mexican Chocolate Ice Cream is gluten-free and can be made dairy-free using a mix of almond and coconut milk.
Personalize your plate to meet your nutrition needs. Provecho!
