Updated: Jun 7, 2018

Pepian de Choclo and Grilled Avocado with Un-chicken Salad

Pepian de Choclo (Corn, Chili Pepper, And Cilantro Stew) | Straight from Peruvian Delights | Serves: 6 | Time: ~40 min


2 tbsp oil

½ cup chopped onion

2 chopped garlic cloves

1 tbsp #AjiMirasol paste

2 yellow #ChiliPeppers, cut in thin stripes (or use in paste, as needed)

4 ears of #corn

2 cups vegetable stock

½ cup cilantro leaves

4 small or 1-2 large #zucchini, cut in cubes

Salt and pepper

"Because zucchini are low in carbs and sugar, and both filling and nutrient-dense, they can play a role in diabetes prevention." - Dr. Axe


Blend the corn kernels and cilantro leaves with the vegetable stock until creamy.

In a pan with oil, over medium heat, saute the onion, garlic, and 2 chili peppers, stirring until golden.

Add the corn and cilantro paste, zucchini, salt and pepper, and cook, stirring, for 10-15 minutes, or until it has the consistency you desire. If it cooks too long it will get more tamale-like.

Stuffed Avocados | Adjusted a Savory Magazine Recipe to Make Vegan | Serves: 3 | Time: ~10 min.


3 ripe #avocados

1 can of artichoke hearts (slightly dried)

1 can black beans

1/2 cup chipotles in adobo

1/2 cup salsa verde

2 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro

1/4 cup chopped mint

S&P to taste

Splash of lime juice ('cause why not?)

"A one-cup serving of artichokes provides about 10 percent of the average person’s daily requirement for the important trace mineral iron." - Dr. Axe


Remove the pit from the avocado and place cut side down on a grill pan. No oil needed.

Allow the avocados to sit on the hot grill for about 4 minutes. There will be grill marks.

Meanwhile, make un-chicken salad. Pulse chickpeas and artichokes hearts in food processor. Mix in remaining ingredients.

Scoop salad onto grilled avocados.
