What are Nopales you may ask?
It’s a prickly pear leaf, native to Mexico. The spines are removed from the leaves and the cactus is typically chopped up and used in Mexican dishes such as: huevos con nopales (eggs with nopales), salsa or in soup. We found our organic Nopales at the local farmer’s market in Aptos, CA but you can usually find them in Mexican grocerias.
The following recipe is suitable for ALL blood types and works perfectly with the Autumn cleanse.
- 2 Nopales leaves, chopped in bite size pieces
- 2 medium sized zucchinis, chopped
- 2 yellow crookneck squash, chopped
- 1/2 medium yellow onion, chopped
- handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- olive oil
- salt to taste
In a skillet on medium low, heat the olive oil. Add onion and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for a couple minutes more. Add zucchini, yellow squash and nopales and cook until tender. Add the cilantro and stir until combined. Flavor with salt.
You can add a scrambled egg or two to make a warm, nutritious breakfast meal or any of your favorite spices that work well with your blood type.
